Today I have a little poem in honour of Melodys return and a table cloth that my grandmother embroidered and crocheted the edge on. Her crocheting always amazed me as she couldn't read a pattern and did it by sight or copying. She called them longs and shorts instead of trebles or double crochet. The pink and white cup and saucer was her favourite (it's Colclough) and the fruit set was my grandfathers (Clarice Cliff only recently discovered that). He was a minister as I have shared earlier and they always had people stopping by for tea. I feel really connected to my grandmother when I look at the embroidery and like to think my love of stitching was passed down from her.
The week has rolled around again to Melody's Tuesday Treasure.
Where we can share the special people, places and things that give us pleasure.
We take guided tours down each others "Memory Lane",
Finding smiles, chuckles and sometimes tears again and again.
We're certainly not part of the "throw away set".
You're more likely to hear us say "there's life in it yet".
Custodians of keepsakes from yesterday,
We ensure their stories don't just fade away.
Some treasure isn't always old.
Stories of beautiful experiences or special people often unfold.
So thank you Melody for the chance to share,
