I've missed the past two weeks. It isn't because I forgot, or hadn't wanted to blog, but there has been a very upsetting bump in my road. Last week, my grandma took a turn for the worst. Her breathing started to suffer and her body was slowly giving out. I went to work during the day then raced home to be by her side every night. We never knew if it was the last time we would be able to see her or talk to her, so every night, for a whole week, we were saying goodbye. She fought so hard to stay alive but her fight ended early sunday morning. It's been a tough couple weeks but now I'm back in hoboken with two weeks of photos to share.
We are going all the way back to September folks!
Started on some new bags. I think they only have to have their button closure then they are all done!
I started my halloween costume last year but never got to finish. This year I wanted to leave myself some time to finish it, but it looks like its cutting it close. Can you guess what I'm going to be?
When I got to work, my manager called me in. Personally that never sounds like a good thing, but she promoted me! I am currently the Holiday VSA. I assist display with creating structures in store etc, when I am not on the floor selling. Right now it is only for the next couple months but we will see if it continues.
With the news of my promotion, I decided to start a skirt. I've had this fabric for a few years and just wanted to see it be turned into something.
One task I do very often is paint. It's now rare that I come home with clean hands.
Home to the farm to work. All these little kittens were piled together!
Finished the skirt just in time to wear it to Drew's sister's engagement party. I originally wanted a maxi but didn't have enough fabric. Hopefully I'll blog about this soon.
This was the first day visiting my grandma for a week. My sister and I had some time alone with her so we just sat and ate some crackers. My grandma would keep these crackers on her at all times.
We started preparing for my grandma's passing. One of my jobs was going through photos. This is my favorite picture.
Some of the display pieces we've been using. They make simple pieces sparkle!
Got to wear the mask for spray painting today.
More projects at work. This week was just crazy.
Beautiful fall weekend on the farm.
Grandma passed away early this morning. I didn't know what to post today.
So there are two weeks worth of photos. I am all caught up! I hope life will be a little calmer now. I plan to catch up on sleep and some sewing and will be posting more frequently soon.
