I thought you might like to see this: an incredibly fine filet work crochet bedspread designed and made by my talented godmother Gwen in the early 1980s and passed to me about 5 years ago
As it happens, this week G [ who was my late mother's best friend from a very young age ] reached a fairly significant milestone.
The big 9-0.
So I marked the occasion appropriately
by passing into HER keeping the quilt that I made 20 years ago for Mum's 70th birthday.
Gwen and I are in firm agreement that it is the thought that counts, so I know that this particular piece means far more to her than anything else that I might have newly made, and I can't imagine a more fitting custodian
and you probably thought that it was the bedspread that was the treasure ... which it IS of course ... but really ...
I meant Gwennie :)
