Heirlooms are pretty cool.
I am the youngest daughter in my family, so I am not going to be getting really anything like jewelery or houses from my grandparents. Although I will say that this most recent time I visited my parents, I did get some fun things.
This would have to be my favorite. This is a knitting needle holder thing.
I have since incorporated my crochet hooks with my great grandmas, but I still love looking at hers.
I don't think I will ever use them for fear of breaking them, because some of them are bone!
But I do love them and cherish them.
heirloom knitting needles?! Oh sad am I??
Since I am talking about Great Grandma's.... my Grandma on my mother's side.
She had retinitis pigmentosa or "tunnel vision" but she never stopped crafting.
Plastic canvas was her thing.
She had a whole plastic canvas town underneath the Christmas tree, with the train.
I always was amazed by her, because she really couldn't see, but she still did what she loved.
This next project has been inspired by her, here is just a sneak peek
I thought I would be done by now, but it is taking forever!!
