|(sorry about the shadow)|
While looking through the several hundred (it seems) I have kept over the years that my aunts made (Mom did not crochet) I found these examples of what is truly amazing work. I would never have the patience to complete anything like these:
|There are 44 of those clusters in each bunch of grapes.|
While they never learned to knit - no one to teach them - they certainly loved to crochet. No one uses these much any more, and I wish I could find a way to display them - perhaps frame them? or make them into pillows? Not sure.
|And who doesn't have one of these from the 1970's?|
We spent a lot of time together, my aunts, my mother and I on Saturday nights doing things like this. I was lucky (although I often feel I was raised by a committee). Their hands were always busy, as long as they were able.
