I have been busy working on my knitting for the past few weeks. I seem to need to have my fingers busy working as I watch TV or just as time to relax. Knitting has been known for years to be an anxiety reducer. I guess that is if everything with your project is going well with no dropped stitches or impossible instructions. Actually ripping out a project is sometimes a frustration helper. I had been making scarves to stay warm. Which actually is still needed here. But with Spring in mind I have started making frivolous fun flowers. Along with my jewelry shop I have a knitting shop called Nanna's Knitting. It is located at www.nannasknitting.etsy.com stop by to see what I have been busy with. The latest scarves are crocheted which isn't my first love, but it has provided a nice break for me. All of my projects are very simple nothing very involved but I enjoy making them and that is what is important.
I'm a daughter, sister, wife, and mother of three, also a mother- in- "love" to two lovely young women, and grandmother. And I am excited to announce a new son-in-"love". We just celebrated our daughters wedding! I love to write. I dearly love God and am amazed that I can barely understand how much he truly loves me. I hope to be a compassionate person that tries to be a help to others. I have many health difficulties, such as Fibromyalgia, Arnold Chiari Malformation (which I have had surgery to decompress the malformation) and Sjogren's. I want to be known as a person who loves others, who tries to be kind, who has a deep faith in God, who is just so totally in love with my family, and did I mention my beautiful grandsons? I want to be more than a label of chronic illnesses, but even though that is a difficult part of my life, I also want to be a listening ear, or empathetic heart, to others who suffer from these same difficulties. Well, that pretty much sums up me!
