yeah, they are back. This week was the first week of fall class here in Ashland. Wadsworth will be meeting on Thursday night. Mary started and new crewel pattern after having finished the sunflower with colorful blocks for a border this summer. Hildegard is working on a darling cottage rug with posies that is almost complete. Sandy finished all her fruit minus two squares over the summer. She chose a new pumpkin pattern with acorns (AKA butterflies according to Hildegard) to start next being in the fall mood. Rosemary has a cute little pig for her granddaughter while Joyce is steady on her crewel runner.
Ruth has ben making starrisers, Rosas doing a Deanne Fitzpatrick house and water scene. Della is enjoying use of her scraps on a sheep with square/triangle/geometic border , kathy is venturing out on portraits and doing a great job. Alice was new this week working on spiral flowers from an urn that was drawn by Lana Omlor, Great new hooker. Julie feels an appreciation for brighter colors and smaller cuts now that she has hooked a primitive. See ladies, even when Iam chattering away and going from one project to the next, I still know what you are up to!
Well (Jack and) Jill went up the hill to fetch something she needed. Jack was fine but Jill (AKA Laura) tumbled down the stairs, didn't break her crown, thank you God but broker her left arm, Was plated and pinned in OR last thursday, Agh!!!! She started with Physical Therapy this week, So now she is a one armed chicken feeder and alpaca herder, So grateful it was not anything worse. But what an inconvenience in life.Looking to God for the lesson in all of this besides not wearing socks down the very smooth wooden stepa in the dark when you are half awake.
I guess I am not as good at writing as I once thought. My daughter is taking advanced comp English this year as a senior in high school. She asked for guidance on a subject she was asked to write about. So she wrote one paragraph and I wrote one and we compared them. Although her wording was pretty simplistic she recieved an 11 th grade status according to the computer. I however received an 8th grade ranking even though I used more complicated words, so I guess I really stink at this writing stuff. I am humbled. The computer said I had too many run on sentences. Yeowsa! So my apologies for all my run on sentences when I blog. Laura is the English major, not me. I am good at bed pans and birthin babies. Anyway now we have a family joke about mother and her writing that I remind her of when she asks me to evaluate one of her papers.
Thank you for all you cards and notes. For all the hugs and love you show me, I apologize for the tears when you ask about our mother She is holding steady at present. Labwork is still very low. She finished her first week of treatment and now goes back to the doctor every other day this week to monitor her white blood count, red count, and platelets and transfuse accordingly. Dad is a role model for what marriage really is. The love and care he gives her is amazing. Believe me they have their moments but who could ask for better parents in this life, God is good, all the time, yes He is.
Getting ready for Lakeside hooking event in October as well as Zoar. I have four more openings for Zoar, OH. Blessings to all of you, laura, the one armed hooker and I thank you for all your prayers.
