Free Pattern from Annies

I did not want to loose this one – its so beautiful. I am going to start copying free patterns into my blog as WIP mental notecards to myself. I see so many lovely items I want to start but loose bookmarks after the fact. I remember my grandmother tatting making lace and crocheting these. Being the irish wild woman she was – there was always some soft and lovely on her hooks. I didnt get to sit by her side in my youth. Unfortunately my family is just not that way. Its a sad lost heritage. I would have loved to enjoy any member of my family by learning their history life lessons and skills while picking up a tradition to pass down.
