I recently visited my Grandparents place and thought i'd take some pics of Grandma's work. She does soo much its not funny.
She gives allot of it away to her church or what they sell, she gives them the money.

cc is welcome and will be passed onto her, i hope you all enjoy it as much as I have  Grin

Grandmas calls this one mile-a-minute, we cant find the correct term for it so if someone knows please feel free to tell me Smiley

These are pillows made by using a crevron stitch and then stuffed

Again, cant remember what stitch this one is but Gmar referes to it as her baby rug

The kitty cat rug

The hat rug which is my favourite, i love the colours

These are milk jug covers, the stitch is soo fine that even i dont have the patience for it.

Hope you all enjoyed the pics Smiley

Your Grandma is one talented lady!  Such beautiful work.  I think my fave is the kitty cat rug - do you know what stitch that is?


I have lots of train tickets (I get the train most days), if anyone wants some for papercrafting just send me a PM Smiley

Your Grandma does some lovely work Elariane  Smiley

The mile-a-minute pattern is actually called just that, I've never fund it to be that fast growing though  Wink

My favourite is the big bold flowered one and I also like the pretty beaded jug covers.

thanks for sharing  Grin

Trekky try this link http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/kitsinrow.html for a free pattern  Smiley

These are all wonderful. Your grandmother is amazing.  I love them all but especially the hats and the stars and the flowers. Thanks for putting them up for us to see.

amazing work!  Look at all those cats and hats!  Hey, I'm a poet and didn't even know it!   Wink

I really like the Hats (looks like a good scrap user-upper) and the cats, it's wonderful that your GM is involved and active with something she enjoys. I wish mine would venture out a little more.

Please spay or neuter your pet!!!!

Your grandma is a generous and talented woman!  I just love the hats one!

Her fine work on the doilies is also beautiful!

I love the brown/black/cream color combos that she used in a few of them...such a nice mix...

I hope she passes on her wisdom and tips to you as well...and keeps on making things for many years to come!
