Taking a Break

Northern Shore of Oahu, Hawaii
Turtle Bay Resort
November 2010
I'm going to take a short break from blogging. Look for me in the comments on your own blogs.

I'll return to regular blogging soon, but until then, I'll share some random photos from time to time.

Seven Year Socks

Julie W. (JulieKQuilts) and I have followed and read each other's blogs for years. Julie's a dedicated cardio nurse whose own heart is as big as Texas, as she often makes beautiful quilts and gives them to her special patients.

In 2011, I made Julie a pair of socks for a swap we had arranged. I am still using and loving the placemats and mug mat she made and sent to me.

I got a chuckle when I saw Julie's comment on the recently finished Chameleon Socks, and I knew it was time to make some more socks for her.

Julie's feet are tiny (size 5 compared to my size 10), so I was able to knit two pair for her in the time it normally takes me to knit one pair for myself. Julie's socks are pairs #9 & 10 in my 2018 Box of Socks knitting quest.

Enjoy these socks, Julie. I promise it won't take me seven years to knit another pair or two for you.

Back in Time - Family Photographer

Art, Annie, Franklin, Ed, Ted, Charlie
I don't have a photo of my Dad's complete family: I'm sure his sister Sadie is not in the photo because most likely she was the one who took it. Sadie probably took the photo in this earlier post, too.

Every family seems to have a historian, the family photographer. Because of their role, they are seldom in photos.

Who's your family historian/photographer?
