My next three great granny blocks are finished...
I am enjoying the scrappy look these are achieving. I have three more to go and can start putting this little quilt together.
According to Lori's great granny block instructions, the blocks are the baby (center), the mama, the granny and the great granny. So to celebrate the granny round this time, here are very old photos of my grandmother and grandfather.
I never knew my grandfather as he died before I was born. I did however know my grandmother very well. She was the sweetest lady and I just loved her. She was an amazing crocheter and I am hoping to do half as well as she did. I think her talent with her hands was passed down through the generations. I loved spending time with her. I think the thing she felt most strongly that she achieved in life was seeing her family thrive...her own daughters with families of their own. She loved being around her grandchildren and great grandchildren. It was a love made us all feel secure and happy with her at the helm.
