Time For New Beginnings

There has been very little knitting going on recently but now that the offspring and his family have gone back home I will find some time for myself. I'm still grieving and I suspect that it will last for some time yet, but next weekend I plan a few days at my cabin in the woods. That's also where I have a pottery studio that I haven't used for a few years. The plan is to give it a good cleaning, get rid of all the accumulated spiders and bugs and check my equipment.

With a little luck and if the foot cooperates in the next month I will buy some clay and attempt to throw some pots. Most of my friends have already put in request for various things like mugs, berry bowls and platters. I will have to see what I can do.

Meanwhile, I'm awaiting delivery of a swift since I don't have Mom's hands anymore to help me. I'm going to try dying the yarn I bought a couple of months ago and see what comes out. Should be fun and I will post pictures when I get it done.

Meanwhile, to all the blogger friends to sent condolences on the passing of my Mom, I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I also got a lot of email messages and they were deeply appreciated...Rositta
