My mother passed away this evening.
My sister and I were with her when she died.
She is finally at peace.
|Mom struggling with her card. |
I needed to open the envelope for her.
|Shadows of the gazebo.|
|These outside pictures show the true color of the yarn.|
|Same shawl but taken in doors one evening. Amazing difference in color.|
|Draped over my daughter's arm the day the shawl came off the blocking board.|
|The cute model is my beautiful daughter.|
|Another option for how it can be worn.|
|An indoor shot so the color is not quite right.|
|Without rolling up the sleeves, they fall over my hands.|
|I really like the buttons. :-)|
|Picture from Ravelry|
|My version - border in progress - before blocking.|
|I decided to add some crystal beads to the border and the points.|
The camera doesn't catch the sparkle.
|Another shot of the pre-blocked work.|
|Blocking will pull out the lace pattern and show off the design better.|
|Although it isn't evident in the picture, the room needs painting, but it is OK for now.|
The maple desk was my desk when I lived at home
|I am particularly fond of these lighted flowers. My daughter-in-law had a set|
that I just loved and I had to have my own.
They make a wonderful muted night light.
|And what room would be complete without a bull dog. At least this one|
doesn't have to be walked. :-)
|You see I have a whole lot of fiber just waiting to be spun.|
|I have a teddy that wears my very first knitted sweater - the sweater I made|
during my learn to knit class in 1997.
|And the wedding flowers I made for my son and daughter-in-law's wedding ...|
they had nowhere to live either.
|And Max, the now newly installed Yarn Cat who lives in my yarn room - he|
also was homeless (well, not really. He lives part time in my bedroom. But the
story flows better if he seemed homeless.)
|And the bed I bought for the yarn room and the "homeless" cat.|
|And the yarn that fills BOTH SIDES AND TOP TO BOTTOM in this closet. It|
was screaming for a permanent home!! In its last room it was spilling out of the closet
and onto the floor. Now if I can only show restraint and stop buying yarn ...
(a wish that I have already broken with a purchase this month and a second purchase this month is on my radar.)
The only thing that might work to "cure" me would be some kind of an "intervention."
But I will go down fighting with my pointy sticks if I have to!!!
You have been warned!!!
|So now all these wonderful items now live in my yarn room.|
I love my yarn room.
|LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this crafty cluttered space that is just mine.|
