This handmade crochet bedspread is a treasured reminder of John’s Grandmother. Her hands were always busy creating doilies, rugs and blankets . . . as well as baking the most luscious pull-apart buns.

    Nostalgia beautifully captured. My mum was also a busy knit/crochet expert and we still use some of her creations. Your image captures the mood of the past that I can still remember. Thank you so much.
