I had a crafty Grandma, really crafty. She made things, lots of things.
Cousin Stacey post this pic on wastebook -- a picture of THE tree skirt -- everyone received one for Christmas one year, they've become family treasures. One year, it was crochet table doilies -- round and about 30" in diameter -- each of the married grandkids. I received mine for Valentine's Day.
Seeing it on wastebook brought back a flood of memories and some happy tears. Holidays tend to bring out the happy tears.
Tomorrow I'm digging out my doily -- 'tis the season for happy memories.
