Even with three months passed since arriving here in Virginia, as of today actually.
I'm still finishing up the final stages of the unpack. All the boxes have been emptied, except
for two boxes filled with DVD's and 15 small book boxes of my mates. (I gave away ninety percent of my library prior to move).
It's the keepsake boxes that I've been organizing or more so, rooting through.
Having stumbled upon a box filled with my Mother's crochet work, I had to snap a few pictures of it!
|Mum made hundreds of these. This one was perhaps the very last one she made before passing away. Her hands ached and shook a bit, towards the end.|
|Mum's reliable potholders. She made hundreds of these too. These were made in the early 80's. They've held up very well!|
|Ah and Mum's favourite thing to make and give (even to strangers) as gifts. Crochet topped kitchen towels. These were from my Mum's kitchen. Easily these were made in the 70's.|
And then I found vintage hankies with my Nana's crochet handiwork.
|I think I get my passion for miniature work from my Nana. I love crocheting with steelies, small size hooks. Using the cotton tread is a trick sometimes. I'm always in awe of the finished outcome.|
