Keeping it in the family, this bird is for my Aunt Linda.
I thought of her today as I have now agreed to teach two of my co-workers how to crochet. And in doing so, I realize I am jeopardizing both friendships and work relationships…
My Aunt Linda has gotten bit by the crochet bug and she is crocheting everything from hats to clothes to flowers. But, she recently started crocheting doilies. Seeing her doilies makes me think of my grandmother. I remember her making doilies for her home and her friends and babydoll clothes for me. She taught me to crochet when I was very young. And she is probably the reason I have tried anything that involves a needle and thread.
She passed this love of creating things on to me and her daughters. She has been gone from us for a very long time but seeing Linda’s creations sure brings it all back. Some of the doilies Linda is making are traditional and very similar to grandma’s. But… some are also colorful and fun with embellishments! I wonder what grandma would think of the new funky fun ones…. I vote for new funky fun!
When my mom and her sisters read this, they will probably cry. Sorry mom…
