A Tribute

My beautiful knitting pal Audrey, passed away this morning. In an earlier blog I described the knitting group I belong to, and Audrey was a long time member. Here, as usual, she is crocheting for one of her many grand children.

With 11 children, 28 grand children, and too many to count great grand kids, she had to knit and crochet real fast. She learned to do it fast when her children were little. If she didn't do it fast it would never get done in between taking care of all those children.

She also very often would be knitting and crocheting "chemo caps", hats for preemie's, and mittens and hats by the dozen for the church to give to the less fortunate at Christmas.

Audrey was a beautiful person, inside and out. I am proud to say she was my friend. We will surely miss her.

  4. I'm sorry for your loss. Sounds like she was an amazing person and friend. :)

  5. Thank you for the beautiful tribute to my Mom. She was an amazing Lady and we will all miss her terribly. Her memories will live on in her handmade crafts.
