Here it is. Finally! I finished my Jo Morton sample for Jan's shop. Had anyone guessed what it was going to be? I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. I couldn't get a very good picture of the inside, but there are 5 pockets as well as a carabiner
to hold keys. I am very lucky to have a very talented DH who cut a piece of plexiglass
to stiffen the base for me.
It took me SO long to finish. I had expected to be done last weekend, but we buried my mom the Thursday before and I just couldn't seem to get my feet back under me. I think it is harder when the burial isn't right after the funeral. My friend, who is originally from Indiana, said she had never heard of waiting after the funeral until she moved here. I guess it is a Maine thing because of the weather. I think the funeral keeps you busy right the death, but then when you have a burial weeks later after you think you have started to heal it just hits you again how much you have lost.
I just couldn't seem to get back into the swing of things. Had a lousy week at work and pretty much wasted my time off for Memorial Day weekend.
I did spend some time on Memorial Day planting a memorial garden. DH hates mowing the lawn so had wanted to make some gardens to take up more of the grass area.
:-D He cleaned out this area for me under one of the trees. I divided a lot of my mom's shade plants and brought them home. I have to get more as you can see it is pretty sparse so far, but I know it won't take long for those Hosta
and Violets to start spreading.
