Disguised blessings

Been absent for a little while. There have been many blessings in my life and when I don't choke up I'll blog about them but for now just know that I have the best friends in the world.

I've been quiet about a few things and hesitate to post too much but feel I should at least inform those who read this blog. Our eldest daughter has been dealing with serious medical issues for quite a while and after much testing we are heading to a University Hospital for further evaluation.

This picture is a repeat pic and forgive me for re-posting it but I absolutely love it. It describes our daughter to a tee. She's a laid back kind of gal and has an infectious personality. Quiet but full of little quips that make you laugh. Loves animals and as of this writing just called to tell me that she captured a stray dog and is transporting it to a new found home.

I love snow and hope we get a good snowstorm although it's not looking too favorable here. However that could be a blessing in disguise as we'll be in the car for several hours traveling to the hospital. I'm packing the knitting bag and a few snacks (gotta have snacks you know). I'm starting on Christmas gifts already. There have been quite a few gift requests from my crew and trust me, the list is long ;).

What are you knitting?

My dear new friend,

I want you to know that I will really be praying for you all,especially your daughter. I've been thinking of you although,I haven't spent very much time in keeping up with things since the holidays. God be with you and yours with your going out and coming in. I shall be thinking of you. I'm still working on my Veronique sweater (French Girl Knits) well actually,not really. I am completely intimidated by it , so it's at a stand still, :{ Maybe, when it does snow,I'll feel brave again to pick it up.
When a friend is hurting the most we can do is pray and believe. I will.
Love & Very Best

I'm with Chan - just waiting to hear.

What have I been knitting? Socks, socks, socks, and more socks. Working on a cardigan, and thinking about casting on for Frosting for the Princess belated Christmas/birthday gift.

Keeping my fingers crossed that they find something out. Stay safe and warm!

I hope it all goes well for her. I am working on the Holden Shawlette and a wee bitty sockie for my great nephew, this is his first pair of hand knit socks from me.

Adding you and your daughter to my prayers.

After a 2010 of knitting/crocheting almost exclusively for others, I am currently knitting hats for me and my husband and a new purse for myself. It feels deliciously decadent to be so selfish!

I'm sorry I didn't read this sooner Kathy... things have been pretty crappy here lately too. I hope everything is going ok with your DD, and everyone else too!!
