One of my favorite decorations for our tree
is a set of these beautiful snowflakes
that were crocheted by Dennis' grandma Alma
and given to us as a wedding gift.
I would love to find a pattern for them
and make some myself.
We have 12 of them,
two each of six different patterns.
I love what they represent...
the time she spent stitching them,
how her eyes were failing
and yet the stitches are flawless,
I imagine her "seeing" with her hands.
I think of her making them for her grandson
in preparation for the household he and his wife
And when I look at them,
I think of her
and her funny little giggle--
she was too cute!
She'd throw her head back
and clasp her hands in front of her.
Do you have precious ornaments/decorations
on your tree?
I'm sure you do--
please tell me about them!
