Hello aadjs. I am glad that you have a hobby of yours, which is doing some crochet. But my wife loves to knit sweaters for the family and she can do a good job. I am proud of my wife with clever hands and I am proud of you as well for your wonderful crochet like the photo shows here.

crochet - If you have a look around the room you will see some of my grandmothers work
I wanted to learn but never did I felt it was pointless since my grandmother made us so many thing (table cloth and that sort of thing) My mother does it as well but not that much as she has problems with her arm. My grandmother still doe it and she is 85 years old. And that things she makes would last 200 years easy thats how good she is. If I come to croatia you are coming with me to macedonia so you can see some of her things. She gave all her grand kids a suitcase each filled with things she made she gave her daughters in law lots as well and plus made lots for friends and family. Look at the photo you can see some of her things around

Thank you for posting a picture of your beautiful lace. Absolutely! When I was 6 years old my grandma and mum told me it was time to learn to sew and that I had better to it right or our ancestors would roll over in their graves. It would have brought shame to my family if I did not learn this well! But, in fact, I liked learning to embroider and crochet and knit. Iused to like to draw my own designs for needlepoint. Now that I have a computerized sewing machine that embroiders, I am learning to convert my paintings and drawings into digitized patterns that can sew themselves, but as remarkable as it is to see the result, converting a line drawing to a pattern for the machine is much more laborious than expected! So it is a project for a rainy day.
