New Wool Creation
I'm going to see my mother this afternoon and will be taking this little gift. She is suffering with some health issues right now and needs more help than she used to. My sisters and I share in going over to visit and in helping her do many of the everyday things that she can no longer do for herself. We will have lunch and look at pictures of her great grandchildren and just visit.
This is a small scissors holder, made from wool. I made it yesterday from a pattern by Amy McClellan from Under the Garden Moon. It was easy to make, but after looking at the picture, I need to improve my stitching skills! It isn't obvious in person, but in the picture it is "yelling" amateur. I admit that I am out of practice in the hand stitching department...plus my reading glasses need a little upgrading, I think! Anyway, I think she will like it and it will bring a little sunny cheer to her today.
Hope you all have a great week. It is supposed to be significantly cooler here beginning today, so I'm happy. These 103 to 105 degree temps every day are taking their toll on my willingness to do anything at all outside. I've been walking Jess and watering my poor droopy flowers and that is about it. I love my air conditioning :0)
