In Memory Of.....

Mostly this blog is just here for my daughter and I to share the crafty things we get involved with but today is a little different. On Monday 31st March my wonderful grandfather departed this world. He was a gentleman in every sense of the word and he will be thought of with affection for a very long time! This week will be one of remembering for all our family - there are so many memories to share.

He was a creative man himself. He worked with metal making all sorts of wonderful things that will now be treasured by his children and grandchildren. He was the one who encouraged me to learn to crochet and it is still a craft I love. I remember using wool to make chains with my fingers - fingerknitting - as a young girl and it was my grandfather who told me that I could do the same thing with a crochet hook and that is when I started to teach myself to crochet with a little guidance from my Mum. Mum is a right hander and I am a Leftie! I will be forever grateful for that little hint that lead me to a craft that I have enjoyed so much.


  1. God bless your lovely grandfather.
    My Pop is not too well at the moment and they have called all his children in. Haven't heard anything but he has had a good life as I'm sure yours did.
    God bless all our Grandfathers.xx

  2. So sad to hear about your grandfather.

  3. I'm so sorry about your grandfather. He sounds like he was truly loved and appreciated.

  4. I'm so sorry for your loss. Take lots of time to think about the good memories!

  5. So sorry to hear about your loss. My own Grandfather passed in 1984. Actually, he was a step-grandpa but the only one I really knew. I still miss him - just with an ache instead of a sharp pain.

  6. Sorry to hear your sad news it's nice that you have such lovely memories.
