variegated threads...


born in Brooklyn NY 92 years ago

doesn't own a microwave

brews coffee in the old-fashioned drip pot


plays solitaire with real cards

still cuts her own grass on the riding mower

and loves to knit


filling an embroidered tote with variegated yarns 


just because



it's just embroidery, have fun with it!

Using that thread leaves a very cool pattern. Love it!

I would love to meet that fellow Brooklynite, Cathy! She sounds just like how I want to be known!

Who is this special lady? Your mom?
Another delightful post!

God bless her! Sounds like what my my mom was like, but he only made it to 83. They don't make them like that anymore!
