Work in glass

Copper asked me what kind of work my grandma makes at her shop. She likes to take lessons of everything. The first thing she learnt was knitting, later she bought a knitting (?) machine. For many years she has been making lots of things. The purses made of embroidery ribbon. The works in repouseé. Things made with glass. The lamp in the picture was her first work. And of course my dresses. She is very funny because she doesn't like to get bored doing only one thing at a time so, she works glass for an hour, then goes to the sewing machine with my dresses, when she finishes one she goes for her ribbons, and later something else. And guess what? The next month she will start social work teaching to a group of women who are at a local penitentiary. She is very excited because she wants those women lo learn something that make them able to earn money when they recover their freedom. I will tell you how it goes.
Have a good night

Your grandma makes very nice things. There's a lot of knitting around here too. Some of the needles are good to chew.

Lorenza, you come from a household of talented women! Lucky you :)


Suki said...

Your Grandma seems like a really cool lady! Most Grandmas just bake cookies and watch "Murder She Wrote". At least, that's what my Mom says her Grandma did! ;)

All of her work is beautiful! I love the, what was it called...the thing that holds the calendar. Very pretty.

es preciosa.

Besitos por un buen fin de semana.


Roxie, Sammy and Andy said...

Lorenza, your grandma is very talented and very nice to share her talent with other people. Maybe they will all make dresses for you too ... that's a good idea! Your grandma must be a very patient teacher since she makes things that have such detail. She must be patient to do that kind of work!

Reina the Doxie said...

Hi Lorenza,

Your grandma is so talented! My grandma does a little of quilitting but has retired from doing that.

wally said...

Wow! Your grandma is very talented. She makes very beautiful things (especially the dresses for her beautiful grandgirl). Also, I think it is wonderful she is going to teach her talents to others. She must have a big heart!

Your grandma sounds SO COOL! Very very cool that she is so talented, and that she is willing to share that with other people who could use her help! Give some special goober love to her for me, okay?

You are so lucky you see your grandma every day!

Goober love,

Hana said...

Wowie Zowie, your grandma is jack of all trades! That is neat she can make so many different things, and it is neat that she has creative energy! You are very lucky to have her as your grandma. As always, I LOVE your dresses! Maybe she should sell them to the doggies who don't have grandmas who can sew.

Frasypoo said...

Wow !Your grandma is so talented !She is a very nice person too

Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Lorenza,
That is so great that your Grandma wants to help the women. We hope they listen to her & take her good advice on life. She is so multi talented. She must be like our Mama. Mama gets bored doing only one thing, so that's why she has lots of hobbies too. Good luck to Grandma on her new adventure.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
