My grandmother

My Hungarian grandmother died recently. It wasn’t sudden. She had Parkinson’s and a weak heart. The last two years had been a steadily decline.  Z and I saw her a lot in January, and last time I blogged I was making her a free motion quilted tray mat. I finished it, the second tray mat I’ve made her, and I gave it to her in mid-January.

My aunt, with whom my grandmother lived for the last seven years of her life, commented how useful the tray mats are, so I made another three, all in pink. I think she liked them.

It’s strange to think that I’ll never make anything else for her. I know she appreciated all the gifts I’ve made her, as did my aunt.
