Generations of crafty

My paternal grandmother was crafty. More than crafty really, incredibly artistic. She did wonderful drawing and illustrations (including some beautiful pieces on birch bark) she sewed, she knit, she crocheted. She was amazing.

A while back my dad found this in a box of her personal items that had been untouched since before she passed away in 1999. It would have been written in the early 40s. Howard was my grandfather, Bunny was my grandma. I think it's simply incredible, not only was she crafty, she was sly and funny and a decent poet.

I miss her, and I'm proud to carry on the 'crafty' for another generation.
