My Uncle Bill died this week; he was my father's younger brother. End of a dynasty. So many stories, a lot of tragedy amongst this famly. All the siblings now gone.
The one good thing about his death is that I get to reconnect with some of my cousins. My love to Patsy and Laurie, and Polly, whose Dad, Uncle Don, died over 40 years ago. I wonder if the 3 brothers and their sister are reunited in heaven?
I've promised my cousins to stay in touch, and I know we will. Love to them.

One day, I want to learn how to quilt. There are some amazing quilters on Etsy - Look at these beauties:
Rag Quilt from pandjcrafts!
Julie specializes in rag quilts. I actually have a tote like the one above (only in pinks) that lugs all my knitting around. I love it!
Well, maybe I'll stick to knitting.

Work in Progress:
1 pink sheep
1 blue sheep
1 gigantic woolies bunny twice the size of my usual woolies bunnies
1 little gnome that I can never seem to get finished
And, yet to be on knitting needles
1 smaller woolies bunny identical to the gigantic woolies bunny
1 white sheepie with a black face
1 zebra, organic cotton, with red sweater.
Plus, gigantic 3 day craft fair in 3 weeks. Smaller craft fair this weekend. New shop in town that wants to carry my Woolies on consignment. Pending wholesale order (keeping fingers crossed).
SOOOO took off from my day job this week so I can work my Other Job. I might never get off the couch. knitknitknitknitknitknitknitknit

I seem to have vanished from my blog. My newly reclusive ways are transferring themselves to my blog?
A lot has been going on. A lot of difficult stuff. So I guess I found it hard to be lighthearted.
I wonder if my blog has missed me?
Anyway, I'm back to regular posting now. Promise.
