A Little Hooking

a little progress
work sure cut into my hooking time
the past few days

even though this is a worm buster rug
I'm going to go through my over dyed blues
and cut a few more strips...

I am very much enjoying the colors in this mat
they may be the future of my hooking
once all my "darks" are used up
thinking a mix of Karen Kahle over dyed recipes
with as-is light to mediums


thanks for all your kind posts and emails
it's been such a rough week with Mom
left her today in tears
she asked me to throw her in front of a train

the nursing supervisor got ahold of the psych care company
after my repeated complaints
they are now trying her on a different anti anxiety med
I voiced my concern
since when it was prescribed for me it
shot my anxiety and heart rate through the roof

but her current meds are clearly not working
I'm sure the heat and full moon aren't helping
different aides every day this week
some nice, some impatient

she is sad, angry and bored
all she wants is to go home
there is no explaining
that the home she wants only exists in her memory

I find myself doing lighter and brighter things on some pieces, I think it helps with our mood, we need to do happy things. I hope they can get her meds regulated, that is the hardest when she is on different types. Just remember it is the meds and her condition, not you, you are doing the best that you can and more that that, don't beat yourself up.

Hugs to you Kelly! You are a wonderful person & daughter to your Mom...I'd say I can't even imagine what you are going thru (and I probably don't), but I recently went thru the same with my Dad. It was hard & I didn't handle it as well as I could have...Your hooking looks wonderful whether its dark or bright~!

I have gone through caring for an elderly parent with dementia twice. It's the hardest thing I have ever done. Some things I learned: don't beat yourself up, you can only control some things not all, you are doing the best you know how to do, you won't regret the effort you have put forth, and when you go to bed at night; leave it all in the Lord's hands. Hugs to you.
