November half gone already...


I haven't posted anything for a while since my dad got very sick and died. We have all been ocupied for a long time in this family caring for him and my mother. It was all too soon, he was only 69. But he survived bone marrow cancer once 15 years ago, so we have to be grateful that we had these years together..This time around they couldn't do any more for him.
I am still working hard at the pruple shawl, it's slow now, but I have started the decreasing of stitches, so I'm going in the right direction here. No photo yet, though.
My needlepoint is NOT going well at all, wish I could throw it out the window. Every time I pick it up I find new mistakes that I have to undo. Arghhhh! But I HAVE to finish it for Christmas since it's a present for my mother. No new photo of that either.
I have forgotten, though, to show you the white scarf I finished a long time ago, the one I just started to get rid of some fuzzy, white yarn. Here it is hanging together with some other craft projects. The bluish scarf my youngest (with my help) gave her sister last year for Cristmas.
I was delighted today when I opended my blog and found the first comment in my tag board.(Thank you- there should've been a prize for you!) Yipee!! Someone is looking in on my blog after all! Very encouraging.
