Jack and I have been doing some serious cleaning of the storage shed. I wanted to share some of my treasures with you.
This is one of the cards of buttons my grandmother had and the tag she put in when she made something for us grandkids. The buttons are so old they cost a nickel!
Here Grandma was practicing some embroidery. Most likely thinking of doing it on a piece of clothing she wanted to make.
The only thing Grandma learned to crochet was granny squares. On the left is one item nearly finished. She would sew together two squares turning down the front and adding a bow to hold it. Under the flap would go a pencil and a little notebook in the pocket to keep near the phone.
Below are two of my mother’s aprons. I put a ruler there to give you an idea of how tiny she was! These were made in the very early 1960’s. Mom passed away at age 34 in 1969 but I still remember seeing her puttering around the house in her aprons!
Below is an old card my mom sent to my grandmother. It is folded up in the first picture and when you fold the flap down it makes a 3d picture.
I have most of my little bird on this page done and quite a bit of that big old leaf. I have finished a bit more since I took this picture.
Jack is nearing the end on his last supper piece. He says he is ready for a break with a simpler piece when it is done.
But after tough must come a nap!
Huggles and God bless all.
