New Life

Finding enthusiasm, rhythm and purpose in this new life of mine has not come with as much ease.
That is how it should be with love. This I know will be better with patience.


A bright spot has been welcoming this New Life into my heart.


Meet Frances now nearly two months old.


With both of her grandmothers knitters, Miss Frances is sure to be kept warm and cozy.

My contribution thus far is a shawl blanket started last January when we first learned that # 9 was on the way.


I worked on it during those last months that Fritz was so weak while sitting at his side,
each of us encouraging the other in all the ways that matter. 


So in a very real way, wrapping wee Frances in this shawl was like wrapping her in her Papa's Love.


Now all my babies have babies of their own. 

A circle complete.

Beautiful baby. Such a sweet time!! The blanket is really gorgeous and, I’m sure, will be used with pride! I have 3 different projects on the go at the moment. I must pick them up and get on with them. Seeing what you’ve done will, I hope, inspire me to start again!

She's beautiful and you are too, holding her so natural! She such a lucky baby to have you to give her so much love! The knitting is exquisite. You seem to be recovering little by little, with all you've been through. Strong lady! You husband would be super proud of you!!XO
