I promised y'all a freebie and Tee-Dah here she is! Please enjoy and play until your heart is content! <3 Pam
Lucy from attic24 released her bower bird tutorial this week! Squeeeee!! Waited a long time for her sweet birdies! They carry sweet memories for me. Birds remind me of time with my mom. Oh, how she loved early mornings when they first start chirping gladness at a new day. Cardinals are my favorite, their cheery redness and even the quiet understated browns of the female make me almost giddy. Birdies also remind me of my sweet sister, gone 6 months yesterday. She so loved being called bird. Then, of course, the blue bird of happiness that has made me smile through tears because there is always hope. So...yes this granny just may make a jabillion little birdies to spark joy and hope on even the cloudiest of days...~pam
A lot of folks do row blankets... me not so much. They make me crazy because I count count and count. Did I say I count? This pattern is quite different in that you count to 4 a bunch but just 4. This is also a journey for me. A soul searching delving deep journey. Many things bog down your spirit when someone very close dies. Emotions are everywhere. I need constant. I need repetition. I needed a way to process. I hope I've found it, at least some of it. ~pam
I can't even begin to tell you how much fun I'm having playing with this pattern and this yarn...occupying me body and soul! Time to ponder, time to knot! Who could ask for more?! I'm 12320 stitches in and I am loving her more and more each knot I make! <3pam
I had to let y'all know how very special I feel with this yarny blissful gift! This yarn is so squishy, so vibrant, so ME. Weird that yarn talks to me? Nope, these colors have spoken to me for years but never did I think I'd get to play in it. Such a blissful experience that I stepped out of my motif box and went with a ripple. Not just any ripple would do, either. This is Lucy's from attic24 fame. It's also her Lucy pack of Stylecraft Special DK. It also made me wanna share with y'all again. Enjoy! <3pam

Today I was going through in my mind just how many projects I have finished since you went home. It made me sad, because you aren't here to see them all. However, there is a joy that I can't help but feel and celebrate. Life for me didn't stop...it changed...a lot...but it didn't stop. I thought it would, I can't remember you not in it, I still can't believe you're not here...but the living continues! I share this part of me to let y'all see that life does go on and it is worth it!
Two wraps, six blankies, several tests, one horse, two dolls, 17 marshmallow bunnies, several squares for join the love...yes knotting continues and so does life...I will always miss you! <3
I kinda got carried away with knotting and forgot to tell y'all what's warbling through my brain...oops. It happens sometimes that my knots have stories that just have to smolder to exactly the right moment. Maybe someone needed to see it today and not a month ago...maybe.
So...I started this blanket in Oct of last year and well, I got sick and then Dad got sick and all the while Debbie was getting worse and it got put aside. Then I drug it out, because I was needing to talk to Debbie again and she had been my inspiration. Debbie loved the ocean and dolphins they represented peace for her many times we went to the beach in our hearts and minds. Ocean Serenity is a tribute to the calm of the ocean and the quiet love of a dear friend.
