My granny was a fanatical crocheter. She made curtains, tablecloths, shirts, cushions, doilies,   anything you could imagine. Some of these are still in the good shape,  some of her craftwork unfortunately is disintegrating – like the fragments of a net curtain I’ ve used to make this heart.  I did two, one is kept by my daughter in her room, this one is in my shop. I am glad I’ve found a way to keep her work alive…
