The Back Porch
I managed to snag some cushions this past weekend for a total of $40...thank you - please! So, we're ready! I just added some pops of red, my plants, and it's on. I do still have a couple of finishing touches, but I will wait til I get them done to reveal!
I have been so busy lately, in fact, a little busier than I care to be. It has cut into my yarn time. Despite that, I was able to finish up a purse this evening! Hopefully some sun will be out in the next couple of days and I can get some pictures to post. It has turned out really pretty. I am now getting ready to start on another vest for a custom order. Then a "meditation shawl" for another order. Then a vest for myself. So my crochet hook is going to be smoke'n for awhile!
I have been wanting to share some old pictures with my bloggy friends! I have found it a new mission that I get some of these scanned and documented. So, here we go....
My grandma lived with her identical twin most of her life, until her sister died. Auntie Violet had rheumatoid arthritis that crippled her. My grandma on the other had was the picture of being healthy and fit. I remember her telling my after Auntie died that she dreamt about her every night.
I have to add here that my Gramma Esther had an eye for color that was unmatched. She was a seamstress all her life. Her crochet was eye candy, full of color...I loved it!
One more picture???
I am thinking that I will add a tab to this blog where I can begin posting my old photos and talk about them a little bit.
I'm off now. Going to get this purse blocked and ready to get pictures of!
