Gift for Grandma....

 Cheryl has been here from North Dakota since Dec. 18 to be with family. I have not been able to visit although a day does not slip by thinking about the Joy she is absorbing during her stay. 
There was a small gift I was working on for her and finally finished! 
I started with the thought that Cheryl is a quilter...what can I crochet? I had a pattern somewhere...a crochet cover for a tape measure.....
  

 After trying to find the pattern I went ahead and went through my salvage yarn to coordinate color for the project. I started by using the base pattern from a hat then building up the side , then closing. Added a look on the tab of the tape was simply.
I made a basic flower, attached it to the top ...embellished with a button and there it was....the gift however small it was received with a heart felt Thanks.

This is a submission to: Sassy Cheryls SHOW ME! #107 
Here is were I am imspired by her and the followers of her.
