It is a sick day~I haven't had one in a while~but it is not me it is my Nolan. He has a cold and a tummy bug. Though I hate to have my kids sick it is hard to hide my sheer joy at being able to take a sick day from work when I am well. Oh the things I can do on a day like this. Especially since he is really low maintenance. All he has needed is a little toast, a little granola and a lot of cuddles.....which I am all about.In my absence from this blog scene I did accomplish a few things. Like this needle holder for my mother's birthday. She turned 72 yet somehow still dresses better then I ever will. She loved the gift and is an avid knitter from way back. In fact she recently fixed some barbie clothes that she knitted for my sister when my sis was young. My sister just turned 54.
Mom said that she was all the rage at her knitting class when she eloquently pulled out her fancy needle roll!! I would like to craft her another gift for Mother's Day but am at a loss for what to make. Any ideas? She has almost everything under the sun that she needs so it is hard to come up with something new. Other gifts I have made her are aprons, oven mitts (with ball fringe of course), and table runners. What are you guys doing for that special Mother or Other in your life?
