Mum's Knitting

Hello all,
I wanted to share Mum's Charity knitting with you today.
Mum knits 8" squares,and 16 squares make a baby blanket
In less than 6 mths, Mum has knitted enough squares to make 10 baby blankets.
Mum co-ordinates the colours and patterns she wants them to be,and I help by sewing them up.

Mum is 95 and an inspiration to our family..she is greatly loved by all of us..

each 'bundle' is a blanket waiting to be stitched together

Mm relaxes by watching sport while she knits

a finished blanket

Mum got her nieces into knitting squares and between them, my d-i-law and us we donated 15 blankets to our local Charity. Mum keeps us on our toes.... she is fantastic!!!!

I hope you enjoyed meeting Mum.

God Bless

  1. Your dear mum is a beautiful Godly woman who as you have mentioned, is an absolute inspiration, if only we all dedicated ourselves to help others as she does, even while she watches her favourite sports.
    I have had the great pleasure of meeting her, she is a true blessing. I am forever grateful to her for she is the mother of my dearest friend. I pray that her cup will overflow with blessings from our heavenly father.
    Thank you dear Barbara for sharing a little of her love with us.
    Love and hugs

  2. Mum is an absolute star!!
    She is wonderful in every way :-)
    Always our best inspiration for what a godly and loving mother is supposed to look like - we love you lots Mum!!
    Lets pray we got a good dose of her genes and can be found doing the same things when we hit our 90's too - eh Barb lol!
    Thanks for sharing this for LACE.
    Big hugs to all and a special kiss for Mum..Trish xox
