When my mom's younger sister passed away(1994, I think), Mom inherited a Cedar Trunk full of craft stuff. One of the projects in it was a half-done afghan my Grandmother had started out of a beautiful crochet cotton. Mom thought long and hard about what to do with the squares and finally decided that she could make a few more and find some 12" pillows to cover. Then she gave the finished pillows to her sisters and nieces, my sister and me.
She was about 80 y.o. when she accomplished this. How I miss her!! She was an awesome person.
