Treasure Chest Thursday – Gladys Elizabeth (MURRAY) FULLERTON

b. 1905
d. 1996
Gladys was Lois Shumaker's mother
Caption reads:
Gladys was brought up in a strict Methodist household – no work on Sundays, even needlework, no using tools, even scissors. At age 11 or so, in a moment of Sunday defiance, she knitted this little purse (4 in. x 3 in.) on hatpins, so she could keep her project from being discovered.

  1. I just love this story. That is indeed a treasure. The purse is lovely, but the insight into Miss Gladys is priceless. Go Gladys!
