My Grandma's Work

About a year ago, I came across some negatives in one of my grandmother's crochet things. I had to go to a specialty camera shop to get them printed. My mom gave me all of her things after grandma passed and I took up crochet when I was about 19 or so. Grandma really preferred to work with thread, but made a few other things with yarn too. (She passed away when I was only 12, before I started crocheting.)

She lived in a nursing home and my mom used to do her shopping and take a lot of things to the fair for her every summer. These pictures show one year's worth of fair items. The peacock was a big seller. I think I have the pattern in her handwriting. I'm just not sure until I try to make one what order the pages go.
