Hubby's, 93 year old, Mother was not up to par, Thanksgiving, but she is not a complainer. So, we all dug in for Christmas celebration. If you follow, you know I make the 12 grandchildren an ornament every year. For years the ornament got tossed to their parents so they could dig into the homemade candies, cookies, and hot chocolate mixes, pretzel rods with molded chocolate tops and a bit of $$'s at the bottom.
I am now happy to report that some of the 12 are just now starting to enjoy the ornaments, 2 now have their own trees!! And, are using the neatly tucked away boxes of 'gram's ornaments' to start their trees.
This year, I crocheted snowflakes from twine and then dipped them in a glue/water bath and pinned them down to dry. Just as they were very tacky, I sprinkled glitter on them and just had to hot glue a little bling on them:
“Impella CP” heart pump
This is a relatively new procedure that doesn't require cracking the chest open. Within 5 days from the heart attack he was home!!!! Yes I can see all of you out there, who had their chest cracked open and a part of a vein from your leg to create a bypass to the blocked artery, wishing you were as blessed as this guy, surrounded by his children:
Next time I promise to have a few pictures of some of the things I have been working on....teaser with thanks to thefrugalcrafter on YouTube:
