I hope your Christmas and New Year holidays were wonderful! I wish I had the excitement I once did. I know the grandgirls loved Christmas!
New changes have happened since my last post. I have retired. With more time on my hands, I get little done. I am sorting through all my material possessions. I have given some items away and I sold some. I have also added a couple of new possessions. Here is one:
My new sewing desk. I have wanted to make this purchase for years. I love the gingerbread trim.
I have been knitting away on a new hat pattern. The first hat
came out perfect. The second one grew when I washed it. The third one I made into a ponytail hat and it came out great! I did go down 2 knitting needle sizes.
The first hat made:
The second hat made:
I will be making one more hat to perfect the pattern. What do you think of this hat pattern?
When I travel from my home to my mother's, I see many interesting homes. Wouldn't you love to live on Honey Lane? All I can think of is the song Penney Lane by the Beatles. That song is in my head!
I also see abandoned homes. I always think of all the dashed dreams and aspirations the people had. What happened? Where did they go? Have you ever watched Youtube videos where people look at abandoned homes? Some of the occupants left with a meal on the table. I understand how people become ill, pass away, or maybe run from his or her past. What would make someone leave mansions behind?
Thank you for viewing! Dawnie
