Mom taught me to crochet and she enjoyed this activity right up until her illness. I have two pair of slippers in a drawer that she completed while here with us.
This is mom down on the floor at 90 years old with her great-grandson, Leland. When he came to the house after her passing he told me, "My tiny grandma died and went to heaven." It was so precious. When he saw me sitting quietly he came over and gave me a big hug and said, "Everythin' is goin' to be okay Aunt Bev." I called him over a little later for another hug and he said, "Why, we're not leavin'." ;-)
It feels kind of strange to have a crochet hook in my hand after going for a few weeks without doing anything. I have some lovely KnitPicks yarn that is in beautiful autumn shades. I think I'm going to make the Lace Bolero by Tina Barrett. The pattern is on Ravelry and also the site www.topcrochetpatterns.com. It's free!! I love it when I can find something I really like and it's FREE! Let's hope it's as easy as it looks.
I think I even have some beads that I can use for the sleeves and around the front of it. Might be a nice Christmas present for my DD (if it doesn't fit ME).
I'm way behind on a Year of Projects. I will plug along with my list but not try to get back in sync or caught up.I just want to sit back, relax and enjoy some crocheting. I want to make a bunch of hats to donate to an organization here in Arizona that provides hats for the homeless. They yarn/hat bomb them about town in Phoenix and anyone who needs one can take it. Isn't that a fun idea?
Once again, thank you everyone for your sweet words and kind thoughts. They mean everything to me.
HAVE A GREAT DAY!
