That’s a town in Idaho, not a patron saint. (Well, he was a saint, but I refer to the small town where my father grew up and his family had deep roots in.)

I am slowly (and I mean S-L-O-W-L-Y) sorting through the boxes of things I brought home from my most recent trip to Nevada.

015A woman’s over-cloak.

016Close up.

017Detail of the embroidery.

019Moth or wear damage. 😦

020Embroidery work on the back.

021An apron.
