My grandmother Bea Conner taught me the basics of crochet when I was young. I have to say I never really took off with it until now.
Here is Bea (Beatrice) as a young woman… Wasn’t she beautiful !!
I hope everyone is as fortunate to have Grandmothers like this one. She taught us a lot and spoiled us more. We were not spoiled with anything and everything we wanted like children are today. Bea and Pappaw spoiled us with love and time spent going to the farm, playing Old Maid, etc.
Not only did this wonderful woman teach me crocheting, she taught me how to make jelly, and most of all taught me love and showed me how grandparents are supposed to be. You see what makes her so important, she did not have to teach me crocheting, jelly making, love, etc., she chose to. Why do I say that you ask? My mother married Bea’s son when I was 5. The politically correct term for me would be Step-child/grandchild,niece, etc. Yet, I would advise you to never refer to me as such for I was never treated as such. I was and have never been introduced as her step-grandchild and if you called me that, well lets just say Julia Sugarbaker has nothing on the chewing out you would receive from my grandmother Bea Conner. If you do not know who Julia Sugarbaker is by all means look her up on YouTube.
