I just got home from seeing my youngest Daughter Courtney and our little Grand baby Kileigh off to Texas. They are flying out to see Courtney's Husband Brandon off to Iraq. His squadron is deploying This week. I am really nervous about the 2 girls flying, even though they are in the company of another Army Wife and Daughter. I don't think Moms and grandmothers ever get used to their loved ones being out of the state (and our vision) I guess it comes with the territory of loving someone. I am always happiest when I know right where my children and grandchild are!
Good news is, I managed to get Kileigh's sweater done for the trip. I hear its still a little chilly in Texas at night, so I am hoping she will wear it on her trip at least once or twice and know all the love her gammy put into it for her! I learned so much making this sweater. I learned I CAN do whatever I set my mind to. I learned how to pick up stitches for buttonhole bands and collars. I learned I do not like doing buttonholes and then trying to line up the holes evenly spaced and then manage to have the buttons sewed on in the right place! All in all, I am fairly happy with the end result. I am proud of myself for sticking to it even when I wanted to give up and that's what its all about right? Hopefully tomorrow I will get some time to work on my Bead Journal since I am now almost 3 months behind! Actually a little over 2 since February's is almost done. Still waiting on the final piece to finish it off. Hopefully this week. I want to start on things for the new Grand baby on the way! Hugs to everyone!
