I don’t have anything new to show you today, so I thought I would share a little purse I have that belonged to my grandmother. She made it in 1901. I have it in my cedar chest which is now at Mandy’s house. This is the tiniest little thing and she must have used a size 0 hook. This is not regular crochet thread, it is like sewing thread thickness.
There is even a zipper sewn into the top.
This is the grandma who taught me to crochet when I was seven years old. This was the first project I ever made and I still have it. A blanket for my baby dolls bed. Who teaches a 7 year old to crochet a zigzag blanket? Looking back, I realize just how hard that must have been for both of us. She must have had the patience of a saint. But it did cement my love for crochet.
Today I reorganized the main pantry and knitted a few more mini socks. Nothing really exciting to tell and it has also rained the entire day. Tomorrow I’m planning to bake some muffins made with a weight watchers recipe. Basically you take a can of pumpkin and mix it with a spice cake mix. That’s it, no other ingredients. You bake it in a muffin tin at 400° until a toothpick comes out clean. I believe they are two weight watchers points. That will be our dessert for Thanksgiving. No pie for us! How are all of your Thanksgiving dinner plans coming? Are you all staying home alone or getting together with family?
Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday.
