Sunday Musings, A Bit of Crochet and Art

“Do not let Sunday be taken from you. If your soul has no Sunday, it becomes an orphan.” – Albert Schweitzer 

My hip hugger 🐾

Happy Sunday to you my friends!  I am enjoying another quiet, lazy Sunday morning with my hubby and our fur baby Cody.  

I will share I have been in pure hand knitted bliss over the last week as the much cherished and anticipated cool temperatures have finally arrived here in Phoenix. It’s been so wonderful to wear my sweaters, cardigans and socks.. such toasty warm wool that makes my heart sing.

I cannot believe next Saturday is Christmas!  I am rather anxious about Christmas this year, and honestly have been like this for a while.  I lost my Mom six year ago, three days before Christmas, which was also her birthday.  And last year, we lost my father-n-law seven days before Christmas.  This time of year brings an overwhelming amount of feelings, good memories and the ache of missing my Mom, and now my father-n-law. I will be glad for the beginning of the new year.

On a more positive note…

Even though I plan to work on my November socks, I started a Granny Square throw and think it will be a relaxing project for me the next few weeks.  I am basically going to go until I run out of yarn.  My plan is to use it as a light throw or something I can fold in half as a cozy wrap to wear outside when we star gaze.

I finished a pen and ink piece, that includes a touch of watercolor, that I am giving to my Dad and his wife for Christmas.  My Dad has been bugging me about drawing lately, which means he has been wanting something new to hang on their wall.  


I hope they like it, I tend to get a bit stressed giving art as a gift.  

I think the rest of my day will be enjoying my crochet project and reading.  Enjoy your day!

  1. I am so impressed by your drawing! I'm sure they'll treasure that piece.I am sorry that you have some sad occasions associated with Christmas. I hope you can make some happier memories to balance them out.


  2. beautiful drawing! You are grieving and rightfully so. It's sad that they died so close to the holidays. My mom died in October (1998) and it took years and years for Christmas to feel like Christmas! Her mother, my grandmother died in 1999 so that was a challenge. I hope you find pockets of peace and fond memories during the season.


  3. Tina, your drawing is lovely. I'm sorry for your losses, especially at this time of year, and hope you have some happy memories to mark these days … and that you can start to create new ones, too.
