This is one of my recent finds during "Fall Cleaning." (UGGHH) My grandmother, Maggie Noreen DeFoor, crocheted this sometime in the 60's or so. I washed and pressed it, but it wants blocking. I hope you can tell that the flowers stand up from the rest of the crochet. This is just another example of how my tatting reminds me of her crochet.
My husband tells Isaac that he has the best grandmother in the world and that he will realize that one day. I hope I can be half as good as mine was. She was a very special wife, mother, grandmother, sister to us all and I miss her terribly. I am very blessed to have so many of her tatted, embroidered and crocheted pieces to treasure.
