Hands and Feet
I got back from Texas two days ago and am readjusting….although I have to take another quickie out of town trip again tomorrow. After that I plan to sleep all weekend!
The time I spent with my sister and her family was good. Jasenn is doing a lot better than he was, so we are grateful and hopeful. I don’t want to get into the specifics on this blog, but your continued thoughts, prayers, and hope are appreciated. There are also still a few things in my etsy shop, and I will continue to contribute a portion of all proceeds to him and my sister when I re-stock (if I ever have time to make anything again! Sometimes I wonder).
I made him these oven mitts a week or so before I left because I know how much he loves to cook. He also loves cars. I found a lot of cheesy car fabric, and then I found this Japanese import from Phat Fabric, which was perfect. I got to play with my free motion foot, which was lots of fun. The best part was that Jasenn was feeling good enough to cook us quite a few meals last week. Yum.
I also made my sister a pair of socks. Only I didn’t finish them because I wanted to make sure they’d fit and for that I needed to measure her foot. I thought I would finish the toes in a night while I was visiting, no problem, but we were so busy that I hardly crocheted a stitch! Here they are in progress, fingers crossed that I get to them by the holidays.
And just for kicks, here is a pic of me, Ann and my nephew Tegue. I am experiencing withdrawal. From the family, and also from the warmth (even though I was complaining about how “hot” it was hovering around 80 degrees while I was down there).
Have a great weekend!
