A few weeks ago my friend Jackie gave me this beautiful crochet item. It appeared to be 4 placemats crocheted from crochet thread . My grandmother used to work with crochet thread but I have never been able to work with such small stuff. But I do love how it looks so I was thrilled when Jackie gave these to me. I sewed them together to make a table runner and it looks so pretty and happy. Thanks Jackie for thinking of me with this beautiful gift of craftsmanship. It’s just lovely!!!!

What a surprise to find that an old crochet pattern that I made up a long time ago got selected for Home and Garden Digest “15 Best Crochet Tablecloth Patterns”. It was a nice surprise! You can see their article here with all the tablecloth patterns. Mine is number 11. I made it in 2013 just because I was sitting around with some extra cotton yarn and it was fun to play around with ideas. Then Mamie decided she liked it so I named it for her. This photo shows why. You can click here to go directly to the page with pattern.

This new reality is difficult for most people….whether it’s because they are isolated with no human contact or whether it’s because they have been asked to sacrifice their livelihood to this pandemic. But for those of us who suffer from depression it is especially difficult.  I’m sure many, like me, keep their depression under control most of the time but this isn’t that time.  Depression is real…and rears it’s head at the worst possible times….like now.  We have to recognize it…and fight it with all we can.  Today I am fighting by trying to relax….and breathe. I’m keeping my hands and mind as busy as possible.  Lincoln and I took a long walk this morning and cut a few flowering limbs that we are enjoying sketching.  And they make a nice background view while we crochet a little too.  Here’s hoping all of you are coping with whatever you are dealing with today.  Stay healthy.
