"My Grandma's Garden" is in dedication to my Norwegian Grandma, my Irish Grandma, my Mom - all the Grandmas everywhere. A garden doesn't necessarily have to be full of flowers - or veggies - or plants of any kind. In this case, it's simply a garden of handmade goodness - by THIS Grandma.
When I was little, I remember my little Irish Grandma sewing her quilts and clothes on the treadle sewing machine that fascinated me so much - to the point that my Mom started me sewing when I was 6 years old. There was always some sort of fiber work in evidence - at home, at Grandma's - no matter where I was. Sewing, quilting, crochet, embroidery - we saw it all. Odd, though, out of all of us, I'm the only one who knits - or, spins!
My favorite garden? Well, that's my daughter and her husband with a couple noisy, little sprouts of their own!…
