Mum’s crochet throw

I was born in Bradford at Fearnsides Street and my parents and grandparents were either born in the area and/or lived here most of their lives.

I made this little video during lockdown which brings together two precious objects and one of the special songs my mum used to sing.

The crocheted circle must have been the last piece my mum made as it was unfinished. The rocking chair is one of a pair that belonged to my dad and my grandma before him.
