She begins her days around 4 or 5 a.m., staying active all day until she retires at 9 p.m. t, Five .years ago, Mrs. Burrows began teaching the art to her son- in-law's mother, Mrs. Guita Ellis. Since that time, the elder Mrs. Ellis has turned out about 100 pieces of the drawnwork. Mrs. Guita Ellis is well known around Baytown for her activities jn the Gladiolus Garden club and Pythian Sisters. The display at the college is spread out on a half dozen tables, each piece labeled as to the maker. One table illustrates the simplest through the most intricate designs j in pillowcases. Other tabtes are J entirely laid with expensive look- . ing place mats and tablecloths. Background for the exhibit is the painting display by Miss Ann Harrell, Horace Mann art teacher. Drawnwork is made by drawing some threads from the border of a piece of material and by hemstitching and weaving patterns her pieces, which are rather complicated. Mrs. Ellis learned how to do drawnwork several years ago when she had to stop working because of her health. Since then the work, which replaced her former hobby of crocheting, has taken up most of her spare" time just making- presents for friends. •It takes two weeks to make a pillowcase and three months for a tablecloth, so in these terms, Mrs. Ellis says she is "years behind in giving samples to her friends." Indian head cotton is the fabric choice of both women, because it is sturdy besides being a pretty material.
