My Grandma...

my mentor. My family is one of craft, everyone does something creative in their spare time, as you can see by this newspaper clipping from a few years back, my Grandma was the creative force behind us all. Up until the last few months of her life she crocheted everyday and most days, all day. Everything was given away to anyone who needed or wanted something made, her very last project was making 200 hats for cancer patients in Colorado.
As she is no longer with us I feel that the love of "making" will keep her so close to me as I  make my own stuff.
I would not be who I am without her encouragement, support and mostly the love she gave me throughout my life. Grandma I love you.
