Every week I am amazed at the heaps of creative ideas that crafters share.

In this post, I am sharing inspiration with the thought in mind “Hand Made Craft Rocks!”

Some of my most treasured items are handmade.

My Grandmother’s embroidered tablecloths, with such intricate work.

The beautiful knitted baby dress and jacket my Mother made for me when I was a baby, and subsequently, my daughter wore when she was a baby.

I love that my kids enjoyed the quilts and knitted/crocheted blankets I have made for them.

I am sure you also have treasured handmade items. I’d love to hear about them.

Hope you enjoy all the crafty goodness this week…
