Today would have been our gram's 85th birthday. Mom still can't believe sometimes that she's really and truly gone.
Gram was an extremely talented hooman. She designed and needlepointed this picture. This is the home that mom and dad lived in before they moved where we live now.
Gram did beautiful needlework and lots of it.
She loved to knit too~
And she designed and made doll clothes and she designed and made her own clothes - mostly blouses. She made almost all of our mom's dresses when she was in school. To have a store-bought dress was a treat to our mom.
She loved to paint and she was good at it. She taught classes to teach others.
She did ceramics and she entered them in shows and won lots of ribbons.
She made Christmas ornaments that everyone loves. She had her own jigsaw to cut them out. Her ornaments are painted on both sides. They are works of art.
She made the bestest desserts - especially pizzelles♥
She did calligraphy~
Happy Birthday in Heaven, gram. We know that gramp and many others are with you helping you celebrate. We sure do miss you here on Earth.
