This little art work is one of those things that reminds me that sewing must be in my blood. It was a gift to my wonderful grandmother which I made when I was about four or five... I couldn't even write properly yet! But every stitch is perfectly placed in my favourite shapes - hearts!! I rediscovered this little treasure on a recent visist home, and since my granny now resides in heaven, it serves as the perfect momento of our wonderful time together. Ouma Sarie kept me busy and out of trouble for many hours by teaching me all sorts of wonderful secrets. Little did I realize then that these treasures of time -  knitting, crochetting, embroidery and sewing - would be gifts that would create endless happiness in my life...
