Last week I put my name on the waiting list at Ravelry and last night I got my invitation to join. If I had known all they had to offer I would have joined much sooner. I was amazed at the features that allow you to keep track of your WIPs, yarn stash, hooks, and many more. Tonight I plan to start adding all my WIP, love the idea of being able to attach a picture of the project.

Year's End

I know it's a new year but I want to go back and reflect on 2007.
Our Mom died of kidney failure back in March, just before Easter. Mom had made the decision not to under go dialysis as she felt it was her time to go home. We were fortunate in that our youngest sister, Virdie and her kids were able to get home to visit with mom. Mom was cremated. Although she insisted we not go to any trouble, Mom always said she wanted to be stattered in the Blue Ridge Mountains So on Saturday before Easter the family drove up the the Blue Ridge Parkway and had a small ceremony. We later had "tea and cookies" at the house with Mom's sisters.

My middle sister, Charlotte moved in with me after Mom's death. It's amazing how often our family keeps asking how are we getting along! I remind them that the house is large enough that we aren't tripping over each other.

Virdie and her family moved into their house back in April. I spent a week visiting with them over Memorial Day.

Charlotte and I went to Florida for an extended weekend to visit our Mom's oldest sister. Mom and I use to visit Aunt Charlotte twice a year, in 2006 we took Virdie and her kids with us and stayed at a motel on the beach. Aunt Charlotte, who is in her 90's, had moved from her apartment at the retirement center, to the medical center.

We celebrated Christmas on Saturday, 22 December as Charlotte's kids needed to spend Christmas Day with their other halves families. Charlotte's two gradchildren were also present.

I went to Virdie's for Christmas and New Year's. I think we all went overboard with presents to the little ones. I watched the kids on New Year's Eve so Virdie and her husband could go out.

Got Virdie started on Granny Squares for "Share A Square"
