" the granny blanket was so dated and terribly old fashioned and obviously they wouldn't have anything called granny in their home"
I felt really sorry for them. Sorry that a beautiful word like Granny meant so little to them . To me a granny is the greatest word in the world. It is a club that not everyone as the privilege to be in.
Those poor ladies obviously didn't have a great granny like I did.
My granny was terribly fashionable .She made all her own clothes and hats .Proper millinery .She made soft furnishings .She reared her own chickens and grow all her own vegetable, with not a chemical in sight. She rolled her own tobacco she grew the plants.
She cooked like a dream . She had thirteen children so I think she enjoyed a cuddle !!!hehe, She did all that until she died aged 95 Does that granny sound old fashioned, dated?
here. It is called a simple diamond in a square , which I think is perfectly apt .Have a lovely weekend
