I do still have some pictures I haven't shared yet, so today I'll show you something I got for Christmas. My friend Sue (no blog) sent this doily that was handmade by her grandmother (I think - I'll have to find the card she sent with it) It was stained and torn but I soaked it - then soaked it some more. I have no idea how to crochet or to repair crochet so I just used some white thread and tried to sew the torn places back together as best I could. The repair work wouldn't win any prizes but it looks so much better now! Thank you Sue - I can't believe you would part with it, but I promise to take good care of it.
I still don't have my van back. One of the parts came in wrong and they had to re-order. I'm still hoping for today but it could be Monday. While I sincerely appreciate the loan of a car from my parents, I am not comfortable driving it at all. I drive a mini-van folks. The front end is short and I can see it with no effort and there is only the width of a bumper past the back window. Mother's car has a hood that goes on forever and a trunk to match!
Today it is back to MIL's to finish packing up - I've almost finished packing boxes and I'm pretty sure that some of what is left will land in a trash can when no one is looking. We will get a U-haul either late this afternoon or first thing in the morning and hopefully this whole task will be finished by dark-thirty tomorrow.
It is starting to get daylight out - I better get busy!
