I thought I would load another photo so we wouldn't have to continue to see the snake in a bucket!
Last fall my sister and I took my mom on a short road trip to visit her sister. Just a short ways off the road was the old home and ranch my grandmother used to live so we took a bit of a detour to see it. As a kid I don't remember it being this beautiful! We didn't make it to Grandma's often and what I remember was a big box of comic books and my grandma's "paint" room. (and the bulls, as I was a city kid from Seattle) Now that I'm an adult I realize she did many more crafts then just painting. Her embroidery and crochet are just perfect. The Memory Bouquet quilt blocks are patterns I found with her things. After she widowed she moved closer to my town, but never did realize how creative and talented she was until after her death. I have very fond memories of my Grandmother and I'm named after her- Loretta Rose, to be precise.
