There are no great things, only small things with great love. ~ Mother Theresa

This traditional motif was featured in a children's book, Safe Return by Catherine Dexter. Based on a true incident in 1824 on an island in the Baltic Sea, it was also mentioned in The Mitten Book by Inger and Ingrid Gottfridsson.
I am a wife, the mother of four grown sons, and work as a librarian/ archivist at a university library. I enjoy knitting socks and mittens and other items for charity, reading, hand quilting, growing old-fashioned flowers, and bird watching.
