I got a bee in my bonnet to make a prayer flag and found some red, white and blue fabrics in my stash, which I easily cut into triangles and sewed to a continuous blue top. You can see them outside and inside!
Then it was time to make a birthday card for my first grand child who turned 21 this week. I'm late by a few days...Remember that wonky heart I knit when learning fair isle knitting for the baby afghan? I pulled it out of my basket of yarns and tied it to a hard board folded in half
8" X 11" card and on the inside I wrote:
Words of Wisdom, Mikiah:
From my perch of nearly 70 years you'd think I'd have something profound to say. In fact it's all quite simple.
Live life to the fullest...it goes by faster than you'd believe.
It pays to be honest, kind hearted and caring. Whether you call it Karma or just common sense, it does come back to bite you
and I'd rather be kissed than bit.
The Commandment that says do unto other as you would have others do unto you will give you a life of few regrets. And no matter
how you try to paint life later you cannot erase those things you wish you'd never done or said.
Causing others pain causes you the most pain of all. I know.
Make the most of each day. Don't be afraid of hard work. Learn at every corner. Create when you can.
Take time to smell the roses, look at things of beauty...it's in nature all around you, just open your eyes, see, smell, listen, touch, feel, and taste it...Life!
Life is a journey of adventures, it has waves that beg you to ride its crests, and you often crash down in ways that bruise the ego, heart and body,
if in the end we can pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and say for the most part we enjoyed the ride then we created more good than
naught in life and that is very worthwhile.
Stay the ride it's worth it in the end.
Your Grandma Lynn
And after that I had to sew a patch on the big quilt that had come undone on one seam in the dryer. After I put it aside before I had time to fold it and put it away
it became heavy at the bottom.
Looking further I found my furry friend curled up
snoozing in his new favorite place.
What's a gal to do?
