Here are some more of my memory trading postcards. These are the last 4 cards to reach their new "people". They haven't all responded that they have been received, but there has been enough time for them to land.
Rickrack trim was what my mom put on my dresses she made for me if she had a mistake making them. She used the rick rack to cover the mistakes. This one now lives in South Africa.
I remember jumping rope continually. Whether it was at home using one of these ropes or at school with a longer rope, we jumped and jumped. Kids...so much energy. Makes me tired to just think of it now. This one went to Thailand.
Crayons were a staple. I remember getting so excited when my brothers and I would get new coloring books and crayons. We didn't get the huge multicolor sets, just the basic small one, but we so loved getting a pack of the fresh new sharp crayons and spent hours coloring. This one found its way to Australia.
Crocheting was something I always remember my grandmother doing. She made just everything. Doilies, table cloths, potholders, dolls, and anything else that came out in a pattern. She taught me to crochet chains when I was in grade school. I used to make very long chains. Then she taught me to connect them and I would make circles. I didn't learn how to increase the stitches to make them flat until years later, so I had a lot of cup shaped hats for my dolls. This one landed in India.
