Tuesday's Treasure.

Well Our lovely hostess MELODY has burnt herself and the poor girl can't sew and type at the moment. I thought I would still post today's treasure as I know she loves seeing all our treasures.
I love yarn and hand knitted and crocheted items. I think they are things of beauty.I can crochet but can't knit to save myself apart from rows of plain and then I always have to ring my Mum and ask how to cast off....a tragic thing I know. My Grandmother was a beautiful knitter and crocheter and when the weather gets a bit chilly many of my family will pull one of her warm rugs over them and cuddle up. My treasure this week is a gorgeous blanket (it's to big to be a rug) she gave to me that she had made because she knew I loved green. I love it. I love that the wool and blanket have been in her lovely very clever hands. But mostly because it was given to me with love.
Her work was always so beautiful.
Lastly, hugs and healing to our dear Melody for a quick recovery and hope she is back to her stitching very quickly.
Blessings Michelle xxx
