Heirloom

A Beautiful Heirloom From Past Generations:


 This is a bedspread that my Great Great Grandmother Rosa crocheted. I am so grateful to have this beautiful heirloom in my possession. It was passed down to my Great Grandmother, then my Grandmother and finally to me. I am so grateful to my Mother and Uncle for allowing me to keep it!
This is a picture of my Great Great Grandparents: John and Rosa Falcon. The original pictures sit in a collage frame with many other treasured pictures from my past.

LOVELY:


Well, I made another pillow cover! I am really pleased with how it turned out. Now, I need to get busy with making my quilts and curtains for our bedrooms.

A Very Old and Beautiful Pattern:

Three years ago, I crocheted this pattern and gave it as a wedding gift to one of my daughters. I will do my best to ask her to send me a picture of it, so I can post it. My mom gave this pattern to me and I love it.

My First Pillow Cover:


I never thought that I could do it, but I did. I made my first pillow cover and I must say: It's a lulu! I do plan on making lots more.

Little Boy Blue:

Little Boy Blue

Little boy blue,
Come blow your horn,
The sheep's in the meadow,
The cow's in the corn.
But where is the boy
Whe looks after the sheep?
He's under a haystack,
Fast asleep.

My New Kitchen Curtains:




Here are pictures of the new curtains which I made for my kitchen area. Hope that you like them.
