Life got a bit hectic shortly after my last post. But things are getting a little better now. My husband was declared legally blind on June 7th of this year due to a rare genetic eye disease called Retinitis pigmentosa. He can no longer drive and has applied for disability.
I'm training to be a dispatcher at the Stroud Police Dept. It's great because it's across the intersection from my house. I will be taking my OLETS certification test on Oct 12.
As for quilting, I go on Tuesday's when I can to quilt with some wonderful ladies at the Methodist Church. I have a stack of old hand pieced grandmother flower garden blocks I'm piecing together that were donated to the church. They have the name of the lady who pieced it embroidered in the center. I have a double Irish chain made with 1" squares on my quilting frame here at home for a wedding gift. If I don't get busy working on it, it may wind up being an anniversary gift instead, lol.
As for crocheting, I've been making 24-28" squares for dog snuggles. They will go to the local shelter and the parole a pet program.
As for knitting, I've been using yarn leftover from preemie blankets to knit newborn socks. I'm practicing some new techniques on them. I finally learned how to do the Kitchener stitch. Guess the time was right. I've tried a few times before and the instructions made no sense whatsoever.
Hopefully things will stay calmed down and I can visit more often and catch up on all the awesome things you all are doing.
Have a great week ahead!
