Hi there friends!
Wow.  I feel like this space needs a bit of dusting off.  I think it's been an entire month since I have visited here.  I believe that is the longest I have ever gone without checking into this space.  (In 12 1/2 years!!!)

My sweet mother fell on January 27th and broke her hip.  At 83 years old, that is a tough surgery to recover from.  My sisters and I spent 2 1/2 weeks with her, making some tough decisions and getting the new chapter of life implemented.  It truly is heartbreaking but we are so grateful to have this beautiful time with her.  Dementia sucks.  Totally sucks.  But, we are certain our mom feels the love when we are with her.  And that is what is all that matters.

While we were all together, my sister Shelly and I made 60 of these darling hearts for a friend's birthday.  From start to finish you can make a heart in about 10 minutes.  We used scraps of Lion Brand wool ease yarn.  They were totally therapeutic and came at the perfect time.  A lovely memory we will always have.
