Good Morning!

Over the Easter break I got one of the loveliest gifts I have ever received. My Nana gave me a beautiful crocheted blanket that she made.

However, there is more to the story than that.  You see many of the squares were crocheted by my great-grandmother before she died.  Nana found the squares one day in a box and decided to finish what her mother had started and pass it on to me!  That is why you see that some of the squares are slightly discoloured compared to others. Those are the ones that have been sitting around for decades waiting to become a blanket.

Isn’t the craftsmanship amazing?

Every little detail, right down to the tiny individual balls around the edges, is perfect.

I am in awe of the amount of work that went into this blanket and I love that I have a beautiful family heirloom to keep that has so much history behind it.  Millions of thanks to my Nana for this amazing gift.  I’m a lucky girl.

Do any of you have special family heirlooms?

Have a great day!
