tuesday treasures.

my treasure for this tuesday is a crocheted runner that I made for my Grandmother when I was around 13. I desperately wanted mum to teach me and as we were living overseas at the time I wanted to make something to send my nanna. When we cleared her home after she passed away I found it in a drawer with her other doilies. It wasn't the best in the world but she had kept it for 30 years as a treasure.
I was quite touched.
Have been cutting and slashing all afternoon- will show the results of this tomorrow.
Happy tuesday treasures!
cheers

That is great, especially since you were 13. The fact she kept it there all the time shows it was a treasure to your grandma...

I don't think my filet crochet is this neat now - gorgeous and glad you got it back. Treasure to be sure.

It looks just lovely to me and quite an undertaking for a young girl and I am sure your grandmother treasured it very much .

You did that when you were 13?? Wow, I think I'll give up now, that is so beautiful I can't even imagine being able to do something like that myself. How wonderful she kept it all those years. Shows how special it was to her.
