Busy Hands

My daughter learned how to crochet. Her fingers have been flying ever since she stayed the night with her grandmother a couple of months ago.

Here she is working that crochet needle on her second project.

The first one she completed was a gift for her friend who just had a baby. Look how pretty this is with the dainty blue ribbon laced around the edges.

I never learned how to crochet, although my own mother made many very beautiful things. I have so enjoyed using some of the pieces that my mother made many years ago. It is a sweet reminder of her when I see her intricate designs. I am so glad my dear daughter has taken up this craft. It is a craft that has been special for both of her grandmothers.

That is so sweet! I'm working on teaching my girls how to sew. I think crocheting would be a good project for them.

Your daughters crochet is beautiful - love the ribbon - the perfect finishing touch! My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was about 10 yrs.
