January 31, 2012

Last day of the first month, January. I have finished my first baby sweater, except for sewing on buttons, (after buttons are on I will take pics and post) and am working on several baby blankets too, but am currently working on my first ever "for me" project that I might just keep. It is from this pattern : http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/everyday-tote I am doing it in a honey gold color and kinda tweaking it as I go... like it calls for a single layer for the base, but i did two and put cardboard between the two layers.

I will of course post a pic when I am finished. Mom is doing well today, she has posted her emails for the day and read the ones sent to her. She has completed her outdoor chores and is cooking broccoli for dad's lunches. I must remember to check on it...sometimes she forgets she is cooking. This is of course why I am doing most if not all of the cooking.

Received an email from another Michelle over the weekend with links to a couple of groups for caretakers and I think today I will check those out. Thanks Michelle K.

Hopefully these will help others going through the same things Mom and I are going  through.

Merry Meet & Blessed Be
