I remember you encouraging and welcoming friends to our home and cottage,.always with a cup of tea and something to eat.
I remember the many community projects you liked to support.
I remember you baking and decorating birthday cakes for your grandchildren.
I remember your love of painting, drawing and sketching and then making the frames.
I remember your enjoyment of crocheting and needlework and sharing it with others.
I remember you telling me about the memories going into your quilting.
I remember you teaching me to sew, making fiddly little doll clothes.
I remember times of being upset with you and you with me, but right now I dont remember what those times were about.
