Rose, Bea, Mary Clutches

On my wedding day my sister gave me the most beautiful clutch I have ever seen. She said it was my grandmother’s and she carried it on her wedding day, and asked if I wanted to on mine. I immediately took it with eyes watering. I have carried it to every wedding I have attended since, bringing along a little love and family with me. My grandmothers all were incredibly talented crafty women and each of these granny squares remind me a bit about each one of them. I know one day I will be passing on my wedding clutch to my daughter or my niece, so I have been planning my own clutch to replace it for a while. Even though it is not the original I know that their spirit will be with me in anyone of these granny square purses since it was them that inspired me to craft.

They all would have been very proud of you. I love that clutch. I was so proud to carry it. I'm glad that it meant so much to you too.

Absolutely! That's why I have not given it back!
