Sometimes a gift is just a gift, and sometimes it is a whole lot more...

My mother, who has had bad arthritis for most of my life, crocheted a giant bedspread, that took her over a year and a half to make, for my husband and myself as a wedding present. It was a labor of love and holding that blanket reminded me of the love and detail that goes into handcrafted items.

I grew up with a crafty mother, and crafty is really an understatement. She seemed to be able to do about anything, from sewing our Halloween costumes, epic cake decorating and being able to "magically" turn yarn or thread into a beautiful crocheted or knitted project.

Teaching me how to do many of these things she did so well proved difficult as I am left handed and she is not. I still can not knit very well if my life depended on it to this day, but I can crochet. After sitting face to face practicing and multiple lessons with me sitting in the master bathroom sink intently focusing on my mother's crocheting reflection I had it figured out.

After getting that blanket it inspired me to pick back up the "habit" I had learned long ago in childhood. Much of it started in sharing these treasures with family and friends, but why just limit it to them.
