This pattern is named after my maternal grandmother Alwine Nauert Goerdel (pronounced Alween). She just recently passed away. I have so many fond memories of her. She taught me how to sew and cook. She sewed lots of clothes for my sisters and I. My favorite dress was a bright multi-colored polka-dot fabric that I chose myself. I had my third grade school picture made in it. I loved that dress. Granny worked as a seamstress for many years until she retired. She was also a farmer's wife. She was such a good cook. She was famous for her homemade pies. No one could reproduce her pie crust. To this day no one can. I miss her terribly. Guess I'll just get out my crock pot and make a batch of her sauerkraut soup - her own original recipe of course.
