June has been another whirlwind month for my family! In my last post I told you that my mother had been very ill. I am happy to finally be able to share that after nearly 7 weeks in the hospital, my mom went home last Friday. The last several days have been filled with home evaluations and making sure all the services she needs to be successful at home, and STAY there, are in place. Success!!! I can finally take a deep breath and feel comfortable that all is going to be ok :-)
We also had a couple of big celebrations! Saturday my nephew Taylor married the love of his life, Vanessa. What a wonderful person she is and we are all so very pleased that she and Taylor will be making a life together. Welcome to our family Vanessa! I think you know that we already love you! The most incredible thing happened at their reception. Shortly after they arrived and a thundershower had passed, a double rainbow formed over Lake Winnepesaukee, where the reception was held. With a moment like that, how can their life together be anything but perfect?!? (If you are friends with me on Facebook, I shared the picture that the photographer took of them under it. It's stunning!)
Vancouver by Samantha Roshak, aka KnitQuest, as a sample for Blue Moon Fiber Arts. It's knit with their BFL Sport which is just fabulous. (I might have some in my stash, enough for a sweater even. I just need to decided on a pattern) This spent a lot of time with me at the various hospitals my mother was a patient in during May and the beginning of June. If you went to Black Sheep Gathering this year, you would have seen it in person. Be sure to look for it the next time you visit BMFA at a festival or show!
PS- Is it bad that I spent more time deciding what to bring for knitting that I did clothes? It's a 9 hour drive. I have 2 partial socks and my Vodka Lemonade packed. I hope it's enough :-)
