Elizabeth Ann and I didn’t see each other often after I moved to California, but we collaborated on a few projects: I illustrated “Lena Bernice: Her Christmas in Wood County, 1895” and typeset “Death in Ohio”. The poem “Ivory” inspired a small stitchery. The Bronte quilt poem was a family project. I drew the text on the fabric, our Aunt Dorothy cross-stitched the border, and my mom, Wilda, did the hand quilting.
