Twisters


022

Life is like a twister nowadays. Parents going into hospital and going home, one healed, but also one of them so very ill that nothing can be done anymore. She is at home now, we go there as often as we can, but it is so awful to see her like this. So once at home we really need kleenex and a blanket to get warm again.

This also means that I can’t really figure out new stuff. I’m still working on the tuxedo for my son, but because it needs a focus I don’t have, it is going very slowly.

So in the evening when I can, I sit down with some leftover yarn and just try to do something without thinking.

Two colourful potholders are the result! They are made with 2 layers, so very thick and a great way to protect your fingers. Both front and back are the same, and they measure appr. 7 inches.

I’ve also prepared an extra bed upstairs. Tomorrow I’m going to hospital for surgery on my foot (nothing serious), and my husband really is afraid of hurting me, so he wants me to sleep alone for a while.

Groetjes, Dorien

Ach wat verdrietig van je moeder. Geen wonder dat je moeite hebt om je te concentreren op een groot project. Maar zelfs als jij restjes opmaakt maak je nog iets moois. De kleuren gloeien je tegemoet. Prachtig!
Sterkte gewenst.
Groet, Nelleke

Wat een triest nieuws Dorien. Heel veel sterkte. Logisch dat je hoofd nu niet naar haken staat.
Je pannenlappen zijn mooi geworden en die kussens prachtig!

Groetjes, Monique

Heel veel sterkte met je moeder, het valt niet mee om ze zo ziek te zien. En zelf kun je niet veel meer doen dan er zijn voor haar.
Ik ben altijd weg van je kleurgebruik, en de pannenlappen zijn ook weer prachtig!
Groetjes Monique

Oh Dorien, how I feel for you, having walked that path, and yes, the concentration does go. Love the pot holders though.
All the best with your surgery - I hope your recovery is fast with no complications.
Blessings
