For the last four months, Ruth Rikowski has been doing a lot of crochet work. Her grandmother, Elsie Vickery, was very creative and skilled regarding crochet, and Ruth has a number of examples of her grandmother’s work – some of which we have framed and hung up in our home.
Ruth maintains that, not only does her crochet work produce pleasing products which she can wear or display in the home, but the experience of doing the work is soothing and relaxing whilst also stimulating her imagination and thinking about many topics.
Here are some examples of her work:
