Project Life - Week 36

 Great week!  I spent the entire week on an island.  There was hardly anyone there and at times, my friend and I felt like we were really on a deserted island.  It was a little piece of Heaven.

W.I.P. Wednesday - Baby Yoda


 I completed the project that I had started last week - it was super quick to make!

And Valerie from Val's Outside Voice...guessed correctly.  I was making "Baby Yoda" - aka "The Child" - the cute little character from "The Mandalorian"

He is going to be a gift for my friend Susan (who, as far as I know, is unaware of this blog).

Her birthday is in October, but I don't know if I can wait that long...not sure when I will see her next but if it is before her birthday, I may just have to give him to her early.

I was happy with how he came out. 

If you want the pattern, you can find it HERE

Project Life 2020 - Week 34

My aunt's service was this week, she didn't get the proper funeral she deserved due to Covid-19 restrictions (not allowed to have a church funeral).  She was very involved with her church so it was sad that her church family couldn't all be there.  Some did travel the 2 hours to attend her graveside service though.

It is unfair and sad - if she had been "famous" as some other recent news-worthy people, then she could have had a proper funeral or maybe even 2 or 3 funerals as some of the famous people have had but alas, my aunt was just a normal, everyday person so ... no church funeral allowed for her.  I'm not saying the famous people didn't deserve a funeral, because they did...but my aunt deserved one too.

None-the-less...I understand that it was a very nice service and well-attended by my family and a few members from her church, who were able to make the drive.

Also this week, a piece of mail floated back and forth dispite my attempts to get it to the proper receipient, I had my first dentist appointment in the Covid-19 new "normal" world, I received my property tax bill and got to see Dede Vogt perform (not live, but I will take it) !!

W.I.P. Wednesday - Take a Guess

 Today is Work In Progress Wednesday...

I am working on a new project (even though I swore I wouldn't until I finished a big afghan I have in the works), but it is a small project so though I would sqeeze it in.

What do you think it is going to be?

Hint: It is NOT a hat.

Hmmm??? Stay tuned.

Project Life 2020 - Week 33

 My aunt passed away this week - although it wasn't entirely unexpected, it seemed to happen suddenly.  She had been through some battles the past few months but had been doing so well, she was so positive, feeling good and going through physical therapy.  She fell ill on Sunday and by Wednesday, she had passed.

I am grateful that my aunt is no longer ill, her body is now healed and she is at peace.

I received some photos of my great niece - who will be 8 years old in a few months - which is so hard for me to believe.  Time flies and you really can see that in children as they grow.
