Look at Miss Clarice's precious hands.
Hello sweet ladies!
Went to go see my Momma this weekend. As most of you know she lives in a nursing home not far from me. She was in a real good mood and held my hand so tight. She is so healthy, other then she has either dementia of Alzheimer's. I know she knows us and so you just don't know. She can't talk, but she was giving us kisses and she normally doesn't do that. It was a God moment for me! Before we left we peeked in on Miss Clarice. Click on her name and you can read about her. She is the sweet lady we made the apron pattern that we sell along the side bar for. She was excited to see us. She was in her apron and let me take some pictures of her.
She showed us her pillow that was all crazy pieced. Thought you might like to see it. She made it herself and didn't use a pattern she said! In her locket is a picture of herself, her husband and their son. She won't take it off.
She said, "look in the third drawer down of her dresser and you can see what I have been crocheting". I was looking and she said, "Get the ball of pink crochet thread and in the inside you will find the flowers". Tucked inside the ball of thread, I found the pink little flowers. I love her well worn little hands. They are so soft. She had used a saftey pin to hold them together.I would have never thought of doing that! I will now though. Go here if you want to use her pattern for the little flowers. She show me EVERYTHING with excitement and then asked me what I was up to in the sewing department. So cute! Her hands are hurting more and holding a crochet needle is getting harder for her. We need to ask the Lord to help her, please. She showed me the trim she made to finish up the towel. Like I said her hands are hurting so she was not pleased with the stitching. I loved it, but it was preparing me that maybe one day, I won't be able to do like I like to do now. The edging is in the top picture. Absolutely beautifu! I have bloggy friends that helped me find the endings some time back when I talked about Miss Clarice before. The edging can be found in the book Fifty Beautiful Edgings by Terry Kimbrough
After she showed me the crocheting she wanted me to see this old old old bonnet someone brought in for her to have. I love black, red and white together. She was not pleased with the workmanship and she was going to tear it apart and make it right! Look at the red rick rack along the brim of the bonnet! I would have left it just as is!!!!!!! I couldn't see a thing wrong with it other then it didn't have a ruffle on it like hers. I looked at it and wondered who wore it and what the story was behind it. Hmmmm happy thoughts!
She brought hers out from the side of her chair and she said that hers was the right way to make it! It needed to have a ruffle. She sang me a little ditty and before I could write it down, she forgot what she said! So did I!
Let my teaching fall like rain
and my words descend like dew,
like showers on new grass,
like abundant rain on tender plants.
I love this verse!
This was something that Ellie and I found and thought it was so "cool". It looked like little brown corn on the cob. Isn't the Lord just amazing? We thought it was little eggs. No it is not it is,________. I couldn't not show you. It is so interesting and don't you think it looks just like corn on the cob? We googled it and we read something about silk worms. I don't think we have silk worms in Kansas. May though. If anyone knows anything about this, we would be interested. The grandkids thought it was the best.
