Thank you, Lord, for this fine day...

Today, my mum walked again. OK, so she was gripping two handrails at the time, but it was so great to see her on her feet. Two weeks ago she had a stroke and we weren't sure if she'd even be able to use her left hand, never mind walk. Tonight, I am thankful, and am back blogging again. I even did a bit of sewing last week - James prayed last week that God would make granny better so that I could finish his helicoptor hoody. Don't you just love that 4 year old honesty? I did finish the hoody using the Imke pattern from the Nancy Longdon book, and will post pictures some time.

In my absence, I was surprised to see that the blog got huge amounts of traffic via DailyKnitter.com. It's funny - I consider myself to be a sewer first and knitter second, but most of my visitors arrive via my free knitting patterns. So, by way of paying forward my extreme good fortune in having a walking mother again, my next post will include a free pattern for the above crochet bolero, complete with hand-written chart!

Thank God that your mom is doing better. I would love to see mine walk again, but it won't happen. That little bolero is darling. I would love to make it. I just don't understand how to read a knitting or crocheting pattern. I know how to do some stitches, but not what they are called, etc.

I'm truly sorry to hear about your mum, Julia. I'm so grateful for our own good fortune, but have a new understanding of the pain that other daughters carry. God bless.

glad to hear your mom is showing some improvement, I can see why people would flock for that pattern, too bad I can't knit worth anything
