Family Heirloom

My Creation

Whilst I was emptying a pine storage box that my husband had made me, I found this, this was one of the very first things I had made when I learnt to crochet back in my younger school days, I think I might have been about 11 or 12, my Gran taught me to crochet and she gave me the thread to do this project with. It is a pattern from a crochet book that I had off my parents, my sister has the book now as she does crochet as well. This piece I gave to my mum and she always had it covering her dining room table. I am quite proud of the fact that this is now some thirty odd years old and it has still kept its shape and is still in one piece.

Thats a treasure definetely. You will have to pass it down to family so that it is an heirloom.
