We Support You Hop

Welcome to my day of the
We Support You Hop.
I personally have had someone
very close to me have cancer,
 in just a few days
it is the 10th anniversary of my
Grandmother's last day of battling lung cancer.
I pray that there will be a
cure.
I thought a lot about this
hop and how I could represent
my grandmother.  
She was an absolute gem 
and dearly miss being able to talk to her
face to face. 
My grandmother never had a clothes dryer,
while I was growing up. 
So, all of her clothes were hanging
out on the line in the summer breeze.
Even her unmentionables.
I never recalled grandma
having a number like this on
the line, but she would have
laughed at it.
And probably would have said, "Oh, my."


I had to add more on that
line.

I lost an uncle a few years
after my grandmother to the
same disease.
So, to represent all the
fellas out there that are fighting for their
life, I added a little pair of boxers to
the line.


I thought I would show you just how
small the little bra and undies are.
I took the pattern and made it
25% of the original.


I used Aurifil 12 wt. thread
to crochet lace around both the undies
and the bra.  It worked perfectly around the
edge.


Go and check out the others
who are there to offer their support.

  3. What a sweet, sweet quilt. The bra is tiny! (I shrunk one down to that size to trace on a label, I cannot imagine the patience that went into creating this one.) I just love the clothesline, too. Beautiful work!

  42. My grandmother didn't have a dryer either. She dried her clothes on a line and in the winter went to the laundry mat. I love your project, It's so sweet. A clothes line is what I had in my mind when I first read of the hop. Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Sew clever. Such tiny clothes pins -- where did you find them? My mother hung clothes on the line until she died (1998). I need to rehang a line this summer -- there is something about the smell of clothes dried on the line, and crawling into crisp line-dried sheets. A lovely homage to your ancestors and a reminder that there are some things that really should not be forgotten.

  44. What a cute project Amy, I just love it. I can't even imagine working on the small bra and underwear, way to small for me to do, but I truly admire anyone who can produce such beautiful items out of minis. :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Amy you always come up with the cutest ideas. It is fabulous!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh, Amy, you never disappoint. I'm afraid I didn't copy you this time. I could never crochet with thread, not even yarn. Your sweet quilt makes me smile. Such sweet little underclothes.

  50. Well, I think you have to be one of the most unique Hoppers this time around. Those little bras are simply adorable. I don't know if my eyesight would allow for such tiny creations but they are certainly good eye candy. The whole concept is unique and one of a kind in my book!
