In the line of my job as a carer, I met a lady called Clasiena (80) who was Dutch, she had a sister who tatted but she had never tryed ,she sewed and embroidered lots of things over many years. We both liked to show each other what we had made. One thing that Clasiena make years ago as a brownie were teasel hedgehogs. I thought why not give it a go, so out I went and collected lots of teasels. Then out came the tat patterns and a bride was born. Clasiena loved her. Yesterday I found out Clasiena had lost her battle with bowel cancer. So I decided to show what I made in Honor of her. God rest Clasiena.
