Dottie Angel, I had to collect and show my own heritage. Only small, some would say unimportant things, but the personal value is priceless. She crocheted this "granny blanket" sometime in the 1980s, and the pillow too. Serves today as cover for the chair.
Must put granny squares crocheting on my list for what to learn this year. Besides managing it all, I mean.
My grandmother used to work all the time, and never sat still: cleaning, cooking, farming, fishing. Like all the women along the coast.
Being this inspired I may just have to post photos of the things from my grandmother on my father's side as well, like furniture and the "bunad". Have started to get comments too, which is fun!
