One of my favourite crafts is crochet. I learned when I was fairly young from my Grandma. She did beautiful work which I admired as a child. As a teen, I asked her to make me fashionable clothing and her efforts included a crochet bikini and a dress which I hardly ever wore as I decided once it was finished that the colour wasn't me. (Bright orange! What was I thinking!!!)
Of course I no longer have those things and don't remember what became of them. Luckily I came to my senses before it was too late and asked for something a little more genteel and ladylike. These two treasured doilies are all I have of my grandmother's work, but, thanks to her I now have the ability to make my own, which is certainly something to treasure.
She also fostered and encouraged my life-long love affair with books and reading, but that's another story!
