is ever wasted
Good morning to you all! I have a sweet story to share with you girls today. At the markets last weekend a lady approached me and asked if the crocheted items on our stall was mine. I told her it was and then came her request. Out of her handbag came two crocheted squares, one completed and the other still had to be finished to the end of the row.
These two precious squares were made by her Mother, who has now passed away. The lady wanted to give her own grandchildren something made by her Mother. Each of these squares are to be used in 2 separate cot blankets and I have threaded a pink piece of yarn through these two squares. I will use each of these precious squares as the heart of the blanket as these will be the loved pieces for the family.
I warm to the gesture as my own Mother passed away years before I had my own precious boys, so I know they both missed the opportunity to have something special made for them by their Grandmother. They did however, get loads of things made from Heather the feather and I knitted heaps of stuff for them too. Those precious things are packed away with love. My boys won't be missing out on any memories. We always look for the positive in all situations.
As the weather has turned pretty cold around my part of the world, it's tea cozy time. I have found a fabulous colourful pattern with heaps of cool looking flowers on the top.
This is a purchase from yesterday. Very cute! I love the red tint running around the brim.
This was only going to be a quick post today as I'm scratching for time a bit. lol Before I take off, thanks for the giggles and your help this week Brianna and Rylee....you both make me laugh so much. Francesca and Verbena...thank you for keeping the love of Italy in my thoughts. Thanks to my wonderful blogger friends who visit my blog and leave positive comments, they keep the fun alive.
This week I will be concentrating on the two cot blankets and knitting some beanies. I will also concentrate on burning the fire wood my hubby has brought home....I know he likes that. lol
Have a truly smashing and fun week ahead.
