List? what list?
Nope, the pillows are not on the list for this year but if I don't start them now I will never get to them once I start in on my 'new' list. (which I have not even begun to figure out what is going to be on it)
I do not have any pictures of the pillows because the people they are for read this blog. If they saw them they would know right away that the pillows were for them. This way all my family and friends that read this blog will just have to wait until Christmas to find out if they are the ones that are getting the pillows or not. (I know, I'm mean)
I also kind of sort of started a color affection shawl. I have cast on the beginning 5 stitches and that is as far as I have gotten on it. I am using fingering weight yarn and it is very hard for me to see the bars to make the M1R and M1L. (I am using some darker colors) So I want to work on that when I have LOTS of spare time. (Not going to happen in the next few weeks for sure!) But I am excited to do the shawl and I will be putting that on my YoP list for next year since it will not be worked before that challenge begins.
Today is Father's Day and I no longer have a father living on earth. But I do want to say that I was one lucky girl. I had my Dad for 22 years before he was called home to heaven and he was one of the best Dads I could ever dream of having. A couple of years later I was gifted with my 'step'dad. He was wonderful and never treated me any different than he did his own children. My children were always his grand kids and he never called them anything but that. He was called home to heaven about 4-5 years ago also. I miss both of them so much and still have wonderful memories of both of them. I was totally blessed to have been given two wonderful Dads in my life. I was also blessed to have my Father In Law whom I also thought of as my Dad. He was called home to heaven 3 years ago and has been missed everyday since then.
I hope all of you that have Fathers here in earth with you will take the time to let them know how much they mean to you. Once they are gone you will never get another chance to tell them how much you love them, or how much they taught your, or how much they have enriched your life. So take this day to let them know all of that.
Better go and get some food prepped for our Father's Day bash at our house today. It is going to be a great day having most of the family here.
