I want to tell you about my wonderful Aunt Ruby, one of my mother's older sisters. She is a crafter of all trades. When I was a child my Aunt Ruby made quilts and quilts and even more quilts. I'm privileged to have one, but it sealed and tucked away. Aunt Ruby also crocheted anything from dollies to table clothes. She can knit, sew, and I even remember her making a trash can from egg cartons. We kids loved going to aunt Ruby's because she did kids crafts and would always set us up with something to do. Later in her life she became a Christian. VBS was never the same again. She was now in charge of the crafts for VBS. Everyone loved Aunt Ruby's crafts...the children and their parents.
I did a few pictures of two of the stockings that she did for my children about 25 years ago. She also made crocheted snowflakes (not pictured) and these little cheeky guys. You squeeze their cheeks to reveal a "kiss." You would always chocolate at our house. I've had all this for about 30 years.
Okay, here's the kicker to it all. Aunt Ruby is blind in one eye and is nearly blind in the other. All these crafts she did through the years were certainly a gift from God.
A couple of very old quilted pillow shams.
