Just now we are spending every minute we can at my Dear Mother In Laws bedside. The time passes, quietly at times.gentle reflective thoughts about a life of over eight decades. At other times funny things are remembered. Incidents that immediately make us laugh and we know if she was conscious she would be laughing with us. But, our tears and smiles are bedfellows right now.
We are reading,resting,watching a silent television and waiting.
My hook,as always is nearby and my BIG blanket is growing fast. All those little squares are a perfect distraction. The Masons pack of Stylecraft wools means that colour choices will be tonal and blend perfectly. No need for any angst or too much thought! Just a repetitive motion which is soothing and gentle.
My how this project has grown in these early weeks of the New Year.
Death brings such sadness which takes a little while to accept.These sad,last days take a while to fade and happier memories blossom.
I am wondering whether this blanket will always be bittersweet or become a lovely memory of a last goodbye. I will just have to wait and see as each day unfolds.piece by piece,square by square,stitch by stitch.
