On Etsy since 2010


As a young child I would sit and watch my grandmother crochet and embroider. I found it exciting and fun and wanted to learn; so she taught me. With her patience and encouragement, I flourished and spent my spare time with a hook and yarn (except when I wasn’t reading and writing!). She showed me how to do many different stitches and the beautiful items I could accomplish. She also showed me crewel, needlepoint and cross stitch, which I still do today and use in my crochet. It is also one of my favorite past times. She also taught me to sew and always said my stitches were so neat, you could hardly see them. Today, I am the proud owner of her crochet hooks, many are metal and some wood.
I spent many hours with her while she taught me her art in quiet silence once I had the basics down. I was always so excited to show her my next project to her and her thoughts on it. There were many times we sat and crocheted together, talking about anything, but mostly listening to her exciting tales of her growing up, meeting my grandfather and having my mom and aunts. Always a wonderful conversationalist, my time flew with her. Our bond grew stronger as I got older and had a family of my own. These times remain vivid in my mind today, not only for the experience and love of crocheting, but because I got to spend time with a wonderful, loving woman whose conversation I loved and miss greatly today.
