Leftovers

This post was writtin by Billy about a week before he died. I wasn't going to post it, then thought, he would have wanted me to anyway.


Remember the very colorful blankie I showed you last week? Well, Mom still had a lot of crochet thread left so: she took 14 strands from 14 balls of thread, all different colors, used a very large crochet hook, and made this beautiful "Rag" rug! Then she made a nice thick potholder, (no pic of that). She thinks she has enough left over to make one more pot holder too. She still has some odds and ends left over, and is planning to make some "kitty toys" for her grand kitties in MA. I will have her take some pics of those too. Now, the most important thing here is, Dad will not be able to complain about moving all her crochet thread to NH!!! She is so sly! BOL! (by Billy, a few weeks ago)

Oh that is so sweet. Billy was proud of your crocheting talents and would have wanted you to show us this beautiful rug. Mom was wondering if some time, when you feel like it, if you would share one of your funniest stories about Billy with us. He was such a character.
Hugs Madi

Billy was right...Dad will appreciate your talent and all that yarn once he moves to New Hampshire. He won't freeze his behind off because your blankies will keep him warm.

I think you need to give us a dose of Billy every now and then. It helps us with the grieving process.

Billy always kept an eye on what you were doing... I miss him so much, but I love coming to visit and seeing his cute face --and this was an extra special treat today!!

OH, that was so sweet. I liked reading your other post too that you wrote on Sunday. I also think the blogging community is so awesome! People don't understand unless they are in it. That was so sweet that someone planted a tree in Billy's name. That is just so kind and I love your new header. Perfect!
Thank you for voting for Penny, it would be nice if she won!
