Honestly, stress is just everywhere!! And, I know I am not alone. Thank God, I have potholders to make and give... And still I have lessons to learn in expectations...Sigh!
One of these is on my apt door, others are to be gifted.
My husband and my grandmother were my rocks in life. I miss them so much.
This quilt. I made for my son. I am keeping it for now, It is made with sorrow and with love.
I named it, "Sunshine on my Shoulders". The fabrics are so wonderful in person.
Up close....backing is grey flannel.
My daughter, the musician has found her niche: It is in the Celtic Women's band.
My girl plays a mean tin whistle, Irish style. Her daddy must be so proud.
I spoke with Aoife tonight. They have to bribe her with a piece of chocolate to talk with Grandma...sad!!! They put one piece in my old Irish teapost. When we finish a nice chat, she gets her chocolate, from Grandma....Jeeze Louize...Guess this is part of being 2 and a half.
Thank you Rachel for the lovely visit today. Thank you Betty for the visit to your stain glass studio.
Thank you my sister for the help yesterday. Thank you Sherry for the pictures you sent. Thank you Sunny for the great talks.
Yet still the ocean's rocky and scary. With a sense of deja vue, I carry on.
There is a cafeteria worker who hugs me every day, telling to be grateful that I get to be 75. He says, my big jobs are done, I have to leave all the rest up to God. Sometimes I feel so deserted, then I see that I do indeed have friends. GUS is there...Great Universal Spirit!!
Looking forward to sewing with Linda tomorrow.
And, I have two new friends who live here who deserve an "I care" potholder from me.
Tonight is a chilly night in the Carolinas. Perfect to cuddle in bed under my quilts and be grateful. xo
