I'm at my parent's house right now - mom is in the hospital and dad had to go away for a few days so I came to 'grammie sit', as I told my sons.

I was walking around the house and spotted a hoop I had made for my dad about 20 years ago when my sons were quite young.  He loved giving them spare change when he came to visit and they were always thrilled with it.  When I saw this pattern I just knew I had to make it for him.


                               


In case you can't read it, it says - Dear God - bless my grandpa, He has grey hairs and gives me quarters

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

The fact that it's still hanging after all these years must mean he likes it and it's in a very visible spot too!

A very well deserved visible spot, I think. Every time I see the picture, I go "AWWW" Grin
