  4. Wow! They say the best way to lead is by example. Sylvia is still leading almost two hundred years later. "Busy hands, happy heart" - what an inspiration, that is a lot of hard work. I have never heard of knit suspenders! Wouldn't you love to know what one of those bonnets looked like? I wonder if she used the same patter for all of them? Thank you for sharing your treasure. I love these posts about Sylvia!
