Ever since I can remember, my dear mom has imparted much wisdom....to me, my brothers, my children. Much of her wisdom came from her own life experience, but also from my grandma. I was seven when my grandma died, so I have only a few really clear memories of her.....like her smile, love of laughter and impeccable dress. One piece of wisdom passed down from Grandma, and one which my mom reminds me of every so often is this:
"...Laugh and the world laughs with you, weep and you weep alone."
Well now, how about that? As a child I didn't get it, but I do now. I guess the bottom line is, nobody wants to be around a crybaby. Yesterday I was a crybaby...and tried moseying around to cheer up. That was ok, but soon I realized all I really wanted was to be at home.
I don't have a lot to report in the project department....I am still fiddling with the washcloths and grazing through the sewing room. I will show a couple of previously finished projects, though.
This little red felled bowler was a fun project. I used Lamb's Pride bulky and was pleased with the end result. Lots of mohair in this yarn makes for a wispy appearance.
My first felled purse. This was a fun knit and quick, too. Also made with Lamb's Pride, I love the richness of the charcoal color.
God has blessed me in so many ways. Today I am most thankful for my husband, children and my mom. I know you understand just what I mean.
