An old photo of a woman laying her quilt pieces out on the porch...
Arranging her applique pieces, her patient partner keeping watch...rarely see a vintage photo of needlework in process. Cool.
WHO and WHERE? She seems to be laying out pieces for a wool "penny rug", in the good light on the porch. Has a box of scraps to work with.
I LOVE this picture! So cute that her man is watching her as she arranges her applique pieces. What a wonderful old picture!! Love it.
Amazing old picture of a farmer watching his wife lay out her 'folk art' quilt pieces...

Mary Foust was the daughter of Daniel Foust. She never left East Tennessee and lived to be around 100 years old. When President Teddy Roosevelt was visiting Tennessee she was considered the oldest living American at the time and he traveled to meet her and eat one of her home cooked meals. Mary was famous for living an unchanged lifestyle that was a living window into the past. Her loom is now in the "Museum of Appalachia" near where she once lived.

Mary Foust was the daughter of Daniel Foust. She never left East Tennessee and lived to be around 100 years old. When former President Teddy Roosevelt was visiting Tennessee she was considered the oldest living American at the time and he traveled to meet her and eat one of her home cooked meals. Sis and Coon were her children and her dog was named Pen. An American chestnut tree can be seen in the upper right hand corner of the photo. Mary was famous for living an unchanged lifestyle that was a living window into past. Mary was my grandmother's (Myrtle Foust) great aunt. She told the following story to me: " sometimes when I was a little girl I would take mail to Aunt Mary and her dog would chase me. Mary would scream out " here Pen, here Pen" and the dog would stop chasing me". Her loom is now in the "Museum of Appalachia" near where she once lived. My Great Great Grandfather (her brother), Christopher Columbus Foust Sr., raised sheep and I would assume wool was weaved on her loom. Myrtle Foust stated: “my papaw was a strong man, he could carry two full grown sheep at once, one under each arm. Mary's mother was Sarah Humphries the sister of the Pelham Humphries of this article: www.geocities.com/Heartland/Woods/9796/Humphries.html query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9C0CE2DB1031F932A...

My maternal ancestry: Melungeon--"tri-racial isolate" group of the Southeastern U.S. (Cumberland Gap area of Appalachia--East Tennessee, Southwest Virginia, and East Kentucky). Mixed European, sub-Saharan African, and Native American ancestry.

Melungeons - This helps explain my family's cultural background. We are made up of Native American Lumbee, African Americans, and White Ancestry. My family faced much discrimination due to it. And even to this day we don't fit neatly into one ethnicity. Some of my ancestors looked very black others more Native American and others more white.
Arch Goins and family, so-called "Melungeons"--a name they generally despised and rarely used among themselves--Graysville, Tennessee, c. 1920s. Though they alternately claimed to be "Portuguese" and native Cherokee Indians, they were of mixed African and European heritage. In other words, they were mulattoes, or Colored, but tried to pass for white.
Joe Pye Weed produces huge, puffy flower heads in late summer. It prefers moist soils & is a large plant, growing 4 to 6 feet tall. Joe Pye, an Indian healer, used it to treat a variety of ailments, which led to the name Joe Pye weed for these plants. Folklore says that Joe Pye used this plant to cure fevers & American colonists used this plant to treat typhus outbreaks. Indians used Joe Pye Weed in the treatment of kidney stones & other urinary tract ailments. Photo by Gerri Wilson.
