Her name is Nora and she is a nurse and had a recurrence of breast cancer this summer. This bout involved lots of surgery and her dear sister came to town to help her recover. Well, her sister introduced her to EMBROIDERY!! And that was her saving grace. With her very limited movement she was still able to learn to embroider and she and her sister started making what sounds like the most adorable baby blankets. She said people have told her that they will never use them because they are too precious. I asked Nora if she would bring one by one day so I could see her handiwork! Hope she does. If she does i will ask permission to show you as well.
I have some bolts of some of my favorite fabric at the studio and Nora bought two that she wants to make her next baby blanket from!!
So here are some more photos from the studio today.
Added some Folkmanis puppets...Donkey, Sheepdog, Rabbit,Packrat,Ostrich (that way if I ever have lulls in my days, I will never be lonely!) I think puppets make great gifts for kids and adults. Before my mother died and was so sick in the hospital and couldn't talk, I took her a dog puppet and she loved it! It was the dog who was able to greet all the friends that came by!?
