My maternal grandma turned 84!
She has introduced me to so many crafts and nursed my interest in yarns. I saw my first log cabin motif when she spread her knit afghan across the couch and pointed out the light and dark diagonals. (Such a novel idea to my eight-year-old self.)
This pillow is a beautiful example of her needlepoint. I just love the color scheme of bright and cheery pink with cool blue. Blues and yellows have been my favorite since I was little and the gold yarn is a really pretty accent color for this piece.
Thank you, Grandma for all the beautiful handcrafted gifts. There is love and warmth in every stitch.
