Thank you Lissa and Barbara. It was a pretty terrible ordeal, but knitting helped keep me sane. The weekend was spent sitting in the hospital waiting and watching. That's part of why I started the new sweater, to distract me.

The funeral isn't until Tuesday,as that was the first opening at the military cemetary where her husband is buried. I never met him. He died when DH and I had just started dating.

DH and I are doing OK. Some tears of course, but mostly relief that she is no longer suffering.

Anita

See my completed projects!

Anita, I hear you. I am in the same place myself, but I just keep starting things. I kinda think of it this way, all the started knitting projects gives me a reason to get out of bed in the am and get my other work/play done so I can get to my knitting. I usually work on large projects and I am trying some small ones this yr socks, gloves, felted totes, My reasoning is with a bunch of small projects and a couple of really large projects ( 2 lace like shawls) I will finish some and then just work on some. This is a learning yr for me. So I must remind myself slow and steady. I am even going to try the Koolaid dyeing for the first time.
Anita so sorry to hear about your mother-in-law. I add my hug to Lissas.

I'm 48 and recently went thru a very long dry spell.

After a lifetime of itching to make stuff suddenly about 3 years ago I lost the desire to create. It was heartbreaking and I tried everything I could think of to get going again. I'm not religious but it felt like a spiritual crisis. I thought a lot about how creative young people are and how most creative geniuses are under 30. I thought there was a good chance it was gone for good.

Anyway, I am very happy to report that I am back to my normal state which is to have far more ideas than I can possibly execute. I've even stayed up all night to work on something and I haven't done that in years! Hell to pay the next day but really the best life has to offer for someone like me.

You should thank your lucky stars that you are driven to make so many things. It is a blessing. Don't feel guilty, feel lucky!

Anita,

I'm so sorry. Do take care and think about the wonderful things about your husband's mother and her life.
