Yep, that's your grandmother.
Learned to sew at 8. Senior year of college made 14 formals for classmates, including a memorable strapless one for which they bound up the poor girl in tape (merry widows being too pricey in those Depression days). Mom made the mistake of telling Dad about it, and the poor lass was watched all evening to see if her taping would come adrift.

Only a rapidly moving picture could capture your Grandma's boundless energy -- except in the evenings when she would play endless games of Solitaire -- unless she was sewing.
