Memorial Day

Today we remember and honor those who paid the ultimate price and gave their lives for our country. Those currently serving and our military veterans have all lost comrades in arms and together we will make sure that those who came home under flag draped coffins will not be forgotten.

Today we remember. Today we honor. We all have family members who served in some capacity in one branch of the service back through our history. To my knowledge all of my ancestors who served survived to return home to their family members.

Our family is proud of our history of military service and we support our men and women in the military and pray one day we will once again have a President to be proud of, a President who loves our military as much as we do.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
