"My son, Jett, is out of the hospital and back home in his Tarpon Springs apartment today. My hope and prayer is that he will do well living on his own with the help of his friends and neighbors. It's a complicated situation that I can't share but I want to thank everyone again for their prayers and concern for Jett. He was a breath away from losing his left foot and we're giving thanks galore this evening that he was able to come back home with both feet. Hopefully, he will take good care of himself and all future reports will be good.
Do you suppose that this blog will ever get back to just the arts? I sure hope that it does but while still crying buckets of tears almost daily I've been knitting too. The yellow scarf below was knitted from the beautiful cotton yarn that Christy Verity sent to me. It's 72 inches long and 4 inches wide but I still need to put the fringe on it.
