#47 Pineapple & Shell Dishcloth

Sara Hawkins Wrote: “My sweetest childhood memories centered around my Grandmother’s home in Windsor, NC. Grandmama spoiled me and I relished every minute of it. The house was filled with crochet from ruffled starched doilies on tables, various pieces on backs and arms of chairs, and tablecloths, to lavish popcorn bedspreads. Besides being a relaxing and creative endeavour, everything I crochet brings with it a whisper of her voice and of those golden times as a child”.

Thank you Sara for sharing your love of crochet in your beautiful story and dishcloth.
