Granny's Cross Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs


Granny's Cross 

Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern

By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs


This is the time of year we think of baby bunnies, 
Easter chicks and dying eggs,
Easter egg hunts, dressing up in new clothes, 
and family time. I have many great memories of doing 
these things, but one of my favorite memories
 is sitting next to my Momma on Easter Sundays at church.
 She would sing all the hymns so beautifully,
And we would sit and listen to the Preacher teach  about
 God's Love. She loved going to church, and loved all
 the people there.  My Momma is in Heaven now.
 And I made this Cross to Honor her.
All the Grand kids, and Great Grand kids Called her Granny.
 So I named The Crochet Pattern
"Granny's Cross Wall Hanging" after her.
It Measures 14 X 12 Inches
It's a Thick Sturdy Cross that will hang on the Wall
 or Door without drooping. I did not stuff mine, 
But you can if you want too. 
I did not feel the stuffing was necessary.
