Dear Mother in law came home from the hospital on Wednesday. I wish I could say she is better, but she will never be better. I took Thursday and Friday off from work and stayed home with her. Her short term memory is less than a minute. It's just hard to comprehend. She is paranoid, afraid and depressed. They are giving her medications for these and they are helping some. I took her Saturday to get her hair cut and when we returned home she wouldn't believe that she lived in her house. She thought I had taken her somewhere else. When I convinced her she was home then she was sure that someone had came in and rearranged everything just to fool her. She spent the next hour and a half walking through the house moving every little thing a fraction of an inch. It is a HORRIBLE disease that strips you of everything you ever known and leaves you with confusion and fear. There was to be something that can help, just pray the Dr.s will eventually find a cure.
During what free time that I had, I crafted. It is such a stress reliever to concentrate on something fun. I can't seem to quit making bunnies! While sitting with my MIL I crocheted this little fellow.
His name is Bobby. Because I think his ears look "bobbed" off. I used a pattern, kinda, and then improvised. I should have improvised on the ears, they could have been a bit longer.
He has a fuzzy little pom-pom tail.
Then I made this funny bunny
He hasn't been named. Unusual, because I name everything with a face.
I found this pattern a couple years ago online, but I can't remember the source. So if this is your bunny pattern, Thank You, he was lots of fun to make.
Then I remembered I needed to make a stocking because everyone knows that on Easter Eve the Easter Bunny hops up on your roof and jumps down your chimney and fills your stocking with eggs and candy! I do have that right, don't I? I thought so! LOL!!!
I am breaking tradition this year and using stockings instead of baskets! How cute is this! I used the Avon McCalls pattern that I got in the 1980's. I have no idea how many stockings I have made using that pattern, it is the best.
The stocking is made of a heavy canvas that I found at the Goodwill last week and is accented with yellow calico and gingham. Rick Rack, buttons and a pom pom tail complete this fun stocking.
I am making one for my son, but it isn't finished yet, here is a glimpse,
Can't wait to get this finished!
Oh and just so you don't think that I skipped St. Patrick's Day, here are my decorations
Tacky, no? This little tree is pink, and I'm not buying another one, so this will have to do!
( I think the Dr. Pepper in the background is the perfect décor for the holiday!)
And one more thing. CURSE YOU Brachs Chicks and Rabbits!!! I have already eaten an entire bag!
Sorry for the fuzzy photo, it is probably sugar induced shakes!
Hope everyone has a great day!
