My grandmother my Mom's side passed back in September 2001. No, not in New York. She passed from cancer that formed three tumors in her brain. I helped clean her apartment after she passed and boxed up her things. It was a solemn time for me but it was a loving thing I could do and spend just a little more time surrounded by my Granny.
I got several of her things. One of which is a little sewing bag that folds open and stands next to you. I was thinking the other day that I might like to crochet something but I didn't know where any of my hooks where. By the off chance I looked into the sewing bag and this is what I found.
I just smiled when I opened it. It was like Granny saying, "Here. Use mine." So I did.
