I'm Here!!!




I have been away for awhile.  So much has been going on.  I didn't want to get online and complain about life, so I took a break.  

Brad's mom had gotten very sick right around Thanksgiving.  We lost her January 19th.   My emotions have been mixed for not wanting her to go and knowing she is in a much better place and in no pain.  One of the sweetest moments was when packing up her things and finding one of my little crocheted owls in her purse.  It was like she left it there for me to find.

Cancer is so cruel.  

So, now....I am back.  I ran across some little grannies I had crocheted in a drawer, so I thought I would share them for some hooky inspiration!!!!


I am really liking grannies in tiny frames!!!  I have one on the windowsill in the kitchen, and it makes me smile when I am at the sink.  


Check out this tiny box!!  It belonged to Brad's mom.  I absolutely love it.  


This is so tiny and so Vintage-y I can't stand it.  The tiny photo is one Brad's mom had in her room of her and her father.  It is also in the windowsill in the kitchen.  I could not stand the thought of sticking it in a box.  We need these reminders of our past around us. I feel like it keeps us connected.  

I have been doing some knitting, mostly socks, some painting to.  I actually did a little canvas!!!!  Now talk about therapy, picking up a paint brush and a blank canvas is awesome.  I will try to get a picture of my little painting posted.  I have also done quite a bit of thrift store therapy!!  

Phoebe is doing just fine and has been a little snuggle bunny!!!  Winter is still here, so we spend most of our time side by side while I am knitting!

Love to All!

Dawn

So sad news, but life is that: unexpectedly someone we love get ill and die.
But you will get better, remembering the best moments with the people far from you now... only physically!
Your crochet chicken are so cute!
