Life Changes Quickly …

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.

Poor Elly wasn't feeling well during Christmas.  Mary didn't mind holding her.

The baby wasn’t feeling well during Christmas but there were lots of arms to cuddle her.

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).
