Wow. This is great. I could picture everything perfectly, and you did a great job with the dialogue. I believe you are missing a word in the 8th paragraph from the bottom. It should read "Son of God," I believe. Other than that very minor error, this story is perfect in every way. Keep up the good work.

A beautifully told story, and with the exception of a couple of missing words...I'd say a very well spun story, and written well. An enjoyable and endearing read.

Just lovely! I love your description, especially in the first paragraph.
This is a very good, easy read. I love the "homey-ness" of it.
Your descriptions are wonderful. Nice job.

Very good dialouge, I like the 'accents' and Tibby sounds like a wonderful grandmother. Great job!

This was so cute. Loved your title. One little thing I noticed - when Tibby was telling the story, she picked up the needle to work again - when she finished the story the grandbaby crawled off her lap. ;) I liked how you showed what the children were doing before the story without actually saying it.
