A Gift for my Mother-in-law

MIL’s Gift

In the bottom left hand you can note some folded laundry! 😆

I started this for Mother’s day. Actually I started something else. My Great Aunt has breast cancer and is loosing her battle. She offered me her collection of Filegree Crochet stuff. I wanted to see how I did.

So I had this one magazine and picked a project. It was going very well. Except for the fact that I was cocky enough to think I could ignore guage.

When I realized that I was being cocky and no I would never be able to iron out my error I searched the one magazine for a pattern that would fit what I had.

I should have clued in that it was Intermediate rated, but I was still cocky! Then I should have noted the size finished… Mine is about 18 inches across.

Then there is the fact that we had our move in the in between time.

Anyhow I stayed up late last night, as well as others, and its ready for her when we visit them tomorrow.

    I’m so sorry to hear about your aunt. Several women in our family are fighting the same battle right now.
