All of these pretty items were hand-crocheted by my mother,Grandma, aunt, and more distant relatives. Lots of time, love, skill and effort were put into them. When I look at them, I can imagine Mom and Grandma on a peaceful evening many years ago, immersed in work and conversation.
Isn't it a shame how women today often put so little time and effort into beautifying their homes, compared to their grandmothers? Your own hand-made crafts have individuality. Nothing will compare to the memories they will hold for your family for many years.
Grandma taught my mother to crochet, and I, in my turn, learned from my mother. I'm not as good as she is yet, but I do hope to learn more and make many lovely decorations for my future home.
