Have You Seen This?
And if you're one of those people who recognize patterns, no I don't feel bad that my mother didn't name me a name beginning with M. Maria Eugenie was probably called Eugenie because that's how the French Canadians did things back then. All Catholic girls were named Marie and all boys named Joseph with everyone going by their middle name. Although usually it's "Marie" rather than "Maria" so I wonder if her name were more deliberately chosen? Who knows? She's the one who got married in Lowell, Massachusetts one day and then two days later got married in Nashua, New Hampshire. (Probably a religious thing, but two separate marriage licenses. AND she lied about her age on both of them.)
You can probably tell what I've been doing instead of stitching, right?
