A beautiful work of the past

P1000861 Piano shawl

 and closer

P1000860 closer of piano shawl

This lovely crocheted piece was once a piano shawl   My mother’s grandparents kept it on their piano.   They were the first of their family to leave the Lutheran church because they found a truth they believed held more closely to the Bible.  They held church in their home and invited others to share with them.    I don’t know exactly how old it is, but Mother who was born in 1916 has a note pinned to it saying that it belonged to her Grandparents.  Her grandfather was born in 1858 and immigrated here in 1889.

It’s enjoyable to have a piece of your own past.   I hope someday one of my daughters will also enjoy it.
