It has been a long time since my last post. The past 2 years have been difficult, exciting, stressful, happy and sad.
My sister has relocated to Maine and this past Thanksgiving was the first we have spent together in close to 40 years!!
I have moved out of Ken's house and now have my own place, shared with a very spoiled parrot and an extremely spoiled and demanding siamese cat!!!
I find myself doing more knitting than crocheting these days and have finally (after two years) written out and edited a new and free pattern for the Chevron Dishcloth.
