I was flipping thru an old calendar that had quotes and sayings, and the first one said "If you start something, finish it." That really struck home, I'm finishing all these projects I did in the last year before starting any new ones.This blogging has been a good thing, a reason to finish.
Stitched on 28 ct. Joblean from a free pattern by The Drawn Thread "Pearls and Rose Buds"
This was my first try at drawn work. I enjoyed doing it even if it's not perfect. I stitch to relax and hope that someone will enjoy looking at my work. I feel hidden deep in the internet and wonder if anyone but my family ever looks, but it's fun to be a blogger.
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.
