What a game!
I haven't sewn a lick since last week. I am in the middle of cleaning out my "island" in the middle of my kitchen! Amazing what I've put in the far corners of that thing!
I found something that is slowly (or maybe quickly) disintegrating, something that I cherish. It's a pot holder that my Mom's Mom crocheted in the 30's or 40's and I think I may have one or two more, but they are precious and unfortunately crochet thread isn't made to last forever. I want to preserve this one and have no real idea of how to do that. Anyone got any good ideas?
Here's a picture of it... yes, there are some small stains on it, after all, my Mom used it for 30 or 40 years before I got it and used it for 20 years!
Look at all the work in that! Ton's of stitches done with a very very tiny crochet hook. This is my Grandmother who made the beautiful lace tablecloths too. Such talent!
So anyhow, that's where I am at the moment!
Cleaning, oh yea!! Now to do a couple more loads of laundry. And then move onto the livingroom and move EVERYTHING and clean behind stuff and do that spring cleaning the right way! Have a great day, and God Bless, Anne
