New Year

I am sorry for my absence. Since September of last year, I have been helping to care for a friend who was terminally ill. She passed away this morning after her long battle with cancer came to an end. As a result, my crocheting was limited and several things I did crochet I made for her. She wanted fingerless gloves to keep her hands warm and a crocheted market bag and I had started an afghan for her, but was not able to finish it in time. But she is at peace now....she was a caring person and did not deserve what she suffered. But she was also a fighter....she was diagnosed 9 years ago and was able to live a good life until the last several months.

I hope to be back with more crochet very soon. I am working on a contracted afghan and must finish it ASAP. After that, I should be back in the swing of things, as the saying goes.

Thank you for those who have been and who chose to continue to be a part of my blog life. Keep crocheting!
