I knit. And I cook, write, take pictures. All for one low price.

grandmothers

I was reading my friend Leah's blog - please read her post from March 27 before you read this one - and it reminded me of my own grandmother's work. I have a few of my Oma's tablecloths and tabletoppers, and put one out this past Easter. It is genuine vintage and has the permanent stain to show for it.

I have always loved this particular one.




Here's one of the bunnies, eyeing the eggs.


I think he is in a bit of shock. You want me to do what? Deliver these? What size easter basket are we talking about here?

His buddy in the other corner is trying to help out. I don't know, man, these look awfully heavy...


And so they stand there and debate.

I can literally hear my grandmother chuckling when I look at this.

She passed away 20 years ago this April, and I will always miss her.

I have a very, very old sewing box with spools and threads and sewing supplies that belonged to my grandmother. She taught me how to knit, crochet and sew. I have some really wonderful memories from her. I wish I had some of her afghans and embroidery pieces - unfortunately, others took them and I think they are long gone and lost forever. Just think of the wonderful memories that you are giving your future family! This post really put a smile on my face! Sharon
