KNITTING FOR A DOLL HOUSE
My cleaning lady, a middle aged Polish woman works already nearly 10 years or more for us. For our birthdays each, she crocheted these beautiful bed covers herself. I was very touched.
That remembered me when WW II was over and Germany in ruins, there was no money at all and people exchanged whatever they had mostly against food. The farmers got a lot of jewelry or oriental rags against meat an eggs and my mother who loved to knit, knitted for the 5 children of a carpenter jackets and pullovers against a doll house for me. The carpenter made a beautiful doll house with furniture, nothing was missing !
I think it is still in our attic, as I had a boy and not a girl, it remained unused. Should be an antique by now.
