Picking a Background

this background
is the sort I'm going to aim for
with the My Garden rug...

I'll post a photo of my progress tomorrow
with or without background 


today is my birthday
  as usual
time with Mom is good and bad

my heart is heavy knowing how unhappy she is
knowing I do all I can

minute by minute we go


Charlotte, one of the other facility daughters
gifted me with a gorgeous vase of flowers
sweet pink roses
among other flowers and greens I cannot name
they made everyone smile

of course, the cats are flipping out
I let them have a sniff
then put the vase on a high cupboard...

not high enough
so now they are way up on a shelf
where I can see them from the bottom
my two beasties want to chew them up! 

Melrose is on the floor under the shelf
keeping a close eye on the flowers for me...

I like that light background. There's a wool I have which has pale blue, salmon, beige and it makes an awesome background. Seems to me it is Rebecca Erb who sells it and for the life of me can't remember the name of it. Maybe soft light????? Have used that mixed with other dirty or soft lights to mix. I'm sure you will make a perfect rug as you always have done.

That is going to be a nice background, I always love the colors you use in your rugs and you always seem to find the nicest wools. The flowers sound wonderful and I know my kitties would try to eat them too, and my others had a thing for chewing up the plastic ones. Happy Birthday!

Good morning, Kelley, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! I would sing for you, but it would embarrass us both...I am a horrible singer. LOL

You are an amazing person. Not everyone has a heart for caring for their parent. I am speaking from experience. All you can do is enjoy the good days, hope the bad days pass quickly. Hang in there.
