My family came first during the last quarter of 2014 and I took a break from blogging. Just 5 days after my last post, my dear cousin’s wife passed away leaving 5 children ages 11, 10, 8, 3, and 5 months. Patricia was fine when her husband (my cousin) left for work and sometime in the next hour or so she died from unknown causes. The family lives about 6 hours away (driving), and this fall I spent time with them and then the family came to my house to celebrate Christmas.
With the new year, life is getting back to a “new normal” for my extended family. My husband and I will continue to go up north regularly to help with the family and keep up with the daily lives of the children.
During my time off from blogging, I managed to knit quite a few items and developed many ideas for designs. Now that the holidays have passed, I am ready to start posting about yarn, knitting, and family (expect a few cute baby photos).
