KEEPING THE FLIES OFF
During a Mid June clean out, I found a card my niece in Point Vernon,Australia had sent to me asking me to crochet for her a jug/sugar bowl cover......that was years ago😞...and I had completely forgot about it !!!!🙁.
As I felt pretty guilty about not doing that for her I tried to make the cover for her special. I called it the three generation jug cover as I blended in bits of crochet made by my Mother,my Gran and myself.
My Mother gave me a lot of bits and pieces from my Gran's crochet......some were unfinished makes.
The hexagon centre was my Mother's,the centre flower was half done by my Gran...I completed it.
My part was the edging in variegated Katia Jaipur fine cotton and adding the beads.
I like to think that when Mum gave me her crochet bits bag a few months before she passed it was for a reason. I am convinced that they would both be pleased that I have shared their crochet with other members of our family.
In this way I can give my niece a small something connected to her Great Grandmother, her Grandmother and her Aunty 😊
Thoughts of my Gran and my Mother went into every stitch that I crocheted here.
PS: That parcel still sits in my house because I was told at the Post Office at the beginning of July that Australia has closed its' frontier at present and I cannot send the parcel yet.
