My Mother was a master at crochet...it was her passion, as quilting is mine.

Although she is no longer with us, a little bit of her will be at our Easter table.

Hope you all have a blessed Easter, and are able to be with the ones you love.

Your Mom did beautiful work. She has lovely detail in her patterns.

My mom loved to crochet too. She was constantly doing it until her health failed. Those are some pretty examples to be left behind. Have you picked up the practice? I didn't. I can do some of the stitches but it isn't for me. I would rather embroidery (machine) or quilt.

So many people have asked me if I crocheted like my Mother. I always answered "No need to, as she is the expert!" I have
drawers full of her work that I cherish. On the other hand, she did not quilt, and she loved MY work!

Beautiful. My mom was a crocheter and that's one thing that I never got her to teach me. Now I wish I had.
