Quilted List Taker
I finally had a go at Jennifer's Quilted List Taker. I must say these are so fun to make. Her pattern is very easy to follow. I'm happy with the finished product. I bought a pack of little note pads, so it looks like I'll be making 12 of these list takers for an upcoming craft show. Any leftovers may go into my etsy shop. Or I may just give them as gifts. They would be the perfect little handmade gift for teachers, neighbors, friends, sisters & mothers.
Anyway, Jennifer's lovely patterns are available here.
Thanks for all the nice comments yesterday. At the time I wasn't sure why I was sharing these details almost one year post miscarriage...but now I can see that I am not the only person with these feelings & actually there are a lot of women out there who suffer with the same sadness. And I can't help but think that there are others suffering quietly with sadness over other things. "In the quiet heart is hidden sorrow that the eye can't see."
I did not write that post with a negative tone towards those that mentioned the miscarriage once Dylan lost his job. I know where each of those people's heart was & I appreciate it. I have done the very same thing. I guess it's good to have a little insight (obviously I needed it too) so that we can be more understanding.
So, with that said, I must tell you all that I love my life & I feel happy most of the time. Even during these kinda crazy times, we are making the best of it & smiling & laughing a lot. I enjoy sharing parts of my life with my online buddies. Thanks so much for even coming around & thanks for taking the time to comment & be so kind. You guys are awesome. :)
