New Ideas for Designs and Thank You!

Before I get started writing about all the new design ideas popping into my head, I have to say a huge "Thank You" to everyone who has been so kind to comment regarding my Mom's death. It's been very hard these last few weeks. I am trying to move forward, knowing my Mom is rejoicing in heaven ... but I miss her ... and it's still really, really bizarre to think that I won't see her anymore. In any event, I pray for courage ... and for my Dad ... and we go on to another day and hope I can do my best with it.

SO ... onto new designs! I'm really excited about these. While I was sitting outside one day, admiring the little statues and the bird bath in the shady spot I call a garden, I started thinking about knitting them! Small, stone statues made of knitted felt! I am setting aside my BIG project (which will remain hush-hush for now) to knit up a couple of test statues and see if they can come out in real life as I envision them in my head.

Also, I am just putting the finishing touches on Cool Cat (which will be renamed!) and the Garden Rabbits ... they'll be up soon!

In Loving Memory...

My Wonderful Mom
Dorothea A. Mumm

I miss her so much
So sudden ... so unexpected ... my Mom's death. Now, my Dad, whose health has been fragile for so long, faces the future without her by his side. Please keep him in your prayers.
Things my Mom loved:
Heath Bars
Peanut-butter filled pretzels
Ginger ale
Pancakes and bacon
Coffee with cream
Sitting outside
Her red gloves
Dial Soap
Viva paper towels
Arpege perfume
Hot tea with milk
Butter cookies
Saying the Rosary
Going to Mass
Giving hugs
Making everyone feel special
