treasured inheritance

While visiting in Florida,
I was gifted with a couple of beautiful items...
Grandpa had passed last September and
my momma and her siblings had divided his possessions, as was his wish. 
I received this great little sewing stand:
It needs a little tlc on the top, but is just a great piece
that I have already started to fill with my hand-stitching stuff.
This beautiful crocheted afghan was also gifted to me:
It was hand-crocheted in a soft cream yarn.
It looks like it was then
cross-stitch embellished
over each little stitch
to create the flowered pattern.
Now, I don't know much about crochet,
so I don't really know if it was
over top of the crochet,
but that is what it looks like to me.

If you know what this method is called,
please let me know...
as I'd like to add a label.

I am so thankful for these treasured pieces.
