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.
Being able to imagine and create is such a gift.
Here is a perfect little Valentine!
Skyelar and I had such fun looking at all the yarn and patterns at the Tangle knit store. Here is one of their patterns from their website.
Skyelar, Grandma and a Knit Shop
The Tangle Knit Shop, 525 Main Street in Downtown Grand Junction, Colorado
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.
Vintage Singer Sewing Machine
My wonderful daughter, Suki found a sewing machine like this in Oklahoma. She packed it up and sent it to me. What a treasure – both daughter and sewing machine.
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.
