The Art of Crochet Magazine – What a Gem!

While taking a quick break from my studio to flow online, I came across a delightful gem…the latest issue of The Art of Crochet Magazine.  It features such cute and quick items to make…all in time for Mother’s Day.

OK…Let’s get to it!

Mother’s Day Healing

Whew…what crazy months have gone by as I find myself in the new role of eldercare.  While mom is healing from a neck that was broken, I find ways to shift, ways to settle back into serenity. 

I was so overjoyed to find a rare moment to create and emerge into oneness with my art.  To mindfully slip away to refresh and meander into the stillness of a gloriously beautiful morn with my needle and yarn.

I took my studio work into the sun to finish this joyful new tree.  Ahh, new work in celebration of mom…

Happy Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day, Superman & Yarn

Had to step away from writing for a moment…but for a good cause.  My mother had a horrific mishap with her neck in January…and I’ve been throughly engaged with healing…and finding a new “normal”.  Her predicament is on the same level as Christopher Reeves, Superman, but I refuse to call it by that name for her condition is greatly improving now.  She is truly healing.

In the meantime, during these past months of living in waiting room after waiting room, I stitched my way through her pain, my family’s pain…my own pain.  Every single day, through this roller coaster of medical treatments, hospitals, Intensive Care stays, rehabs, ambulance moves, waiting for this treament and that therapy, I crocheted my way through.

In celebration of transitioning those countless hours spent in all kinds of medical facilities into joy, I share with you now the bouquet of crocheted works.  Below is only a small  sampling.  Each color will soon be sculpted into a fine art masterpiece.

Here’s to my mother’s healing.  On the road to a wonderful Mother’s Day.
