Happy Mother's Day to all who mother in whatever way they can! It is Mother's Day here in the U.S but I know some of you celebrate a different date...no matter.....Mothers are great all over the world and deserve far more credit than they get and equal pay too! I cannot let this day go by without giving credit to so many women in my life who have contributed to the person I am today......just the good parts.....the bad parts I take full responsibility for! LOL! They are all gone from this earth now and I miss them very much.....here are just a few.......
My Mother is the one with her arms crossed, my Aunt Bernice is in the middle and my Aunt Alice is on the right. My grandmother and grandfather are in the left picture on the right side of it. I never knew them as they had died by the time I was born. My Aunt Edna is not in the picture but she was another great lady to have a big influence on me. They were great women and I miss them all!
Now, (sniffle, sniffle), on to the YOP news of the day!
(Drum Roll)......my cursed Hermione's Everyday Socks are done! Ta Da!!!!!! I'll be entering them in Inside #23's Harry Potter KAL. Does it matter that I have been working on them for 4 1/2 months? I'll have to check the rules....maybe you have to start and finish within the month. Regardless, they are done and they do qualify for my Box of Socks.....only 11 more pair to go before 12/31! LOL!
I am trying to be somewhat monogamous in my handwork now to try and get some finishes although with outside work now my time is limited. I started back on my Hotel of Bees shawl..............it's terribly small but we shall see.........the project keeper is what I have done today
The little white arrow looking things are the bee's wings..............the next golden rows are the honeycomb........
and see those 2 little holes below? Those are the bee's wings also and you can see the puff stitch below that is the bee's lower body. The next row will be the top of the bee's body. How she ever designed this shawl is beyond me! What talent!
To top off my Mother's Day I finally got my lemon meringue pie made! My Aunt Bernice used to make this for me every time I came for the summer as she knew it was my favorite.....I wish she could be here to share it with me........or you guys!
I hope you all had a great day and I wish you a great week ahead!
