In 2009 I lost my mom to Ovarian Cancer. When she passed away I became the sole owner of thousands of hand written recipes, going through them I realized we really didn't eat any of these things and all the tasty meals I do remember aren't written down! You'll never know the sorrow of not being able to find the City Chicken recipe that you so long for. From fishballs to watergate cake....how can this go wrong?
Blanket of Comfort
As many of you know my mother has been fighting Ovarian Cancer for the past year and 5 months. Sadly things are not getting better & it seems that fighting the good fight sometimes just isn't enough. I have been trying to get home as much as possible to see her & spend time with her. I took the kids to Altoona this past week for 5 days & let her spend time with everyone, especially the new baby.
Weighing in at 84 pounds she gets cold easily, even in the summertime, so I am on a mission to finish a beautiful blanket for her that was first introuduced to me by Leslie.
I have 2 and half panels finished up & it's such a quick & easy knit that I hope to have it done this week. You can find the pattern ont the Lion Brand Website. I searched the web ferociously for the best price on yarn. I found that going to DefinitiveDeals.com & linking to Joann Fabrics from there got me free S&H. The yarn on site was even cheaper than it was in the store!
This blanket would make a great Christmas gift, but for me it has become a mission to give my mom some warmth & comfort.
