I like to cut the ready made bookmarks in half and stitch a smaller design. I have a lot, so some day I will take them to the library and give them away. I think all these designs came from a chart, part one- Stitchers Wallet, page 15 in The Gift of Stitching for March 2007.
I have been retired almost a year, and have enjoyed doing my favorite things, like needlework, rug making, quilting, watercolor painting and photography.
I have been married for 47 years and am now the caregiver to my husband suffering from Alzhiemer Disease. He is losing is battle now, after 8 years. So sad to watch him drift away.
I am also raising my grand daughter, now age 12. I have had her for the last 6 years, She keeps life interesting, and it is fun to share my hobbies with her. My grand mother and mother taught me, so now that I have a girl I get to help her. FUN.
