Near and Dear

I know I promised that I wouldn't be away for long however, these past few weeks has been a very trying time for our little family. We lost one of our nearest and dearest friends two weeks ago. It was totally unexpected, and frankly quite a shock. He was a man of few words, hard working and a loyal friend. My husband and I for the first few days after his passing took on the added duties of milking his herd of dairy cows and doing barn chores. It was sad to them all sold at auction as this was our friends passion and livliehood. We are still grieving and coping with this loss but, if I have learned one thing it's to treat each day as a gift. I know it sounds cliche but, I realize now more than ever how important it is. 

Now that things have settled down a tad, I have had a few lovely days filled with crocheting and sipping tea. I am working on creating some little beauties for my shop come January. There is a bobble scarf that I must say I am in LOVE with. To sell or not to sell, that is the question! Until we meet again.....
