Quilts with Skyelar

Skyelar and I went and saw a wonderful knit shop.  My 94 year old Mom, who thought she might be passed knitting, is knitting on a beautiful scarf. I saw so many patterns and ideas.  Next week Skye and I will look at a local Quilt Store. Quilt Stores for me, are like candy stores for kids.  We will take pictures.

Skyelar, Grandma and KNITTING

Next week, Skyelar and I are off to look at a Knitting Store.  I remember going with my Mom to a knit shop in Grand Junction.  It was downtown.  Several, what I thought  were “old” ladies ran it.  It was run out of their house and they seemed to have yarn and cats everywhere.  Ladies, cats, yarn and laughter are my memories.  I never became the knitter my Mom was.  But I have always loved to visit knit stores.

Passages

I remember reading a book in the 80’s titled “Passages”.  The life transitions we make through life.  The point I was in then was how to raise two lovely daughters.  My passion then was crafting.  Now I am in the Grandma phase.  Crafting is still my passion.  Now I however have two new wonders in my life to incorporate into my Crafting life.  My dear Granddaughter and my ever challenging computer iPad and a blog.  Skyelar and I are off on this new phase.  We have lots of wonderfully exciting new things to explore and write about.  image
