I get my craftiness from my mother. . . and my aunts . . . and my grandmother. I have many childhood memories involving knitting, crocheting, sewing, rug hooking, needlepoint . . . you get the picture. It's a gift I hope to be able to pass on.
My mom made this adorable baby quilt for Callum. She cross-stitched thousands of little hatches on it. It's the making of an heirloom.
Even those people who don't appreciate handmade items, have to admire the dedication it takes to complete a piece of this magnitude.
For those of us who know what it is to invest this much of ourselves into something, it's already precious. More so because it comes from Callum's Granny.
Happy holiday crafting, Michele
