Granny Sarah, Great Granny Annie, Great grand daughter Astrid, and her mother (our grand daughter) Amelia, in Granny Sarah's kitchen last weekend (left to right - of course).
P.s. If you look at Ann's right elbow (and embiggen the picture a bit) you will notice a nicely embroidered flower on her grey jumper. It's a long story but to cut it short Ann noticed that a very favourite woolly jumper had moth holes in it. Ann killed the moth by washing the garment in a special wool detergent, and was mourning over it at Christmas to the Swedish grand daughters. The senior one said she thought she might be able to help, and worked on it that evening.
She embroidered flowers over the ex-moth holes in similar coloured wool, and it looks really good again - even better as far as Ann's concerned, in that it was done (with love) by a granddaughter.
P.s. Ann says people now think it's a 'designer garment'.
