I have been away awhile, in part due to being busy and in part due to being exhausted and heart-sore. Garfield Farm Museum Dig, RA-ing the Field School, a trip to Colorado, my cousin's wedding, grandma going from being the healthiest strongest woman I have ever met to being in hospice in slightly longer than a month. I am feeling broken and tired and lost and confused. I will write about all of these events and try to work out everything they brought into my life, how they where a discovery making me stronger and weaker, less and more, but that is for later.
Today I am craving normal, so I am doing what I do on Wednesday and joining Ginny at small things.
Knitting wise I have been working on the little owl awhile but only a little at a time, suddenly it all came together and I finish this weekend. It will be for Badger's birthday. About once a month, I host all the crafty types in our circle of friend over to the host, everyone works on whatever they want and we chat, inspire each other and get projects done. I started in on this little frog for Mouse, he chose the colors, for his birthday. Butterfly wants a pink pig - must remember to buy pink yarn - and Beaver wants a horse. The pattern book does not have a horse pattern but we both think that changing a few things on the skunk will result in a horse.
