    Enjoy your crocheted granny rose afghan, it is so beautiful. It's classic crochet.

    love that bedspread!!!! It would go well in my bedroom, so if you ever decide to part with it, you can send it my way.

    Aren't we two lucky Arkansans. I just keep looking at this thing and looking at it. I can't believe how gorgeous it is. Talking about patience. Whoever made this had so much patience. Wow!!!

    Yes we are lucky. Mine is unique in that mine was the last grandchild's finished. My grandfather had a sever stroke and my grandmother couldn't get out to get more thread so my ecru (background) is two different shades in places, which makes me love it even more. I was in the third grade when the first stroke occurred so it was probably finished in either 1960 or 1961. My mother never let me use it, so it's never been used or washed and good as new. Please let the people you have treasures use them, my boys won't ever appreciate these treasures since they were hidden away

    I so agree with you about the folks on the forum, they so often go beyond their comfort zones to help and give to others. This is a wonderful forum to be a part of. I know with my dolls for the sick kids, I have received so much help and encouragement, that has brought me to the point where I could continue on. I've been sick a few days, but will get better and get back to the dolls soon. (ongoing lung issues plus perhaps a touch of cold or flu)
    Thanks all of you for being all you are.

    Gorgeous quilt and the nice thing about crochet acrylic quilts is they wear really well. I have baby quilts made 25 years ago, that still look great. I always remember that good deeds bring happiness.

    I made one like this many years ago, but my ex walked off with it. Don't know where it landed, but hope someone appreciates it as youdo. she did a great job, and you have one great friend.

    A dear old neighbor who crocheted made me a single rose like these mid-1950s. Loved it, loved it, and still love the pattern. How great the spread drifted on to someone who could appreciate it.
