Blue

I have been blue for a while. My grandmother died last week and the funeral was held on Monday. She lived quite far from us, so I have been gone quite a few days. She was a wonderful and strong woman. Her husband died in his early 30s and she was left alone to raise 7 children, one of them being my father. In my humble opinion, she did a wonderful job raising him. The legacy I hope to receive from her is both her inner and outer strength, and the importance of family.






I needed something to keep my hands busy while I was away, so I took some yarn with me and started working on a scarf. I am not sure who it will be going to, but my nephew and niece have put in requests for scarves of their own.
