Today is my Gramma’s birthday! She would have been 76. (This is my Mom’s mom, not my Dad’s mom.) Growing up, my Gramma was always sewing and crocheting and knitting and baking, and I know my love of crafts stems from spending so much time with her. And because she was the crocheting queen, today’s Wednesday Whale Love is crochet-themed!
I bet you were wondering where that was going. And yes, nearly half of my family was born in February. I guess May is just a busy month for us.
Check out these potholders!
I don’t know that my Gramma made potholders. I think she mostly stuck with blankets, sweaters, and hats.
This tissue box cover is adorable:
If only I didn’t already have a whale-embellished square one! And hadn’t spent a fortune on those special square boxes of tissues! J/k, I love my tissue box. My friend Traci got it for me!
And this amazingly detailed humpback whale pattern!
Now, I’m not a crocheter. My Gramma taught me once, swore I’d never forget, and I forgot almost instantly. And I have no interest in it because it’s tedious and I can’t watch Netflix while I do it. But if there was ever a reason to learn, this whale would be it!
Hope your Wednesday isn’t too chilly :)
