Crocheting with cotton never fails to give me a nostalgic reminder of my Grandma's kitchen. She and her sisters had stacks of crocheted potholders and embroidered tea towels edged with handmade lace. I spent so many happy hours in their kitchens, chatting, nibbling on cookies and eavesdropping on delicious gossip that it's no wonder I'm drawn to patterns that remind me of old fashioned kitchens. Crocheted flowers and lace just make me happy.
This Wednesday finds me in the midst of various scrap busting crochet projects. I'm not quite sure what they'll ultimately become, but the simple act of creating them has been enough to bring a smile and a happy heart.
Thinking of you Grandma!
