I wish I knew how to crochet

Check out what my mother in law made me for my birthday:

Very pretty –and it completely reminds me of the crochet that my great grandmother used to do – really beautiful and really intricate stuff. I don’t know that I’d have the patience to make something that delicate.

She also sent some fun yarn:

Thanks, Cheri!
