Heather's Free Tatting Patterns

It's Friday!

I am so happy its Friday I can't wait to sleep in tomorrow until noon... HA HA Those of you who know me know that is not a thing I even try to do LOL

I bought myself a book "Grieving the Child I never Knew" I just started to read it the other day and find it super helpful, the book suggested to name our baby, I hated calling the baby "it" because we didnt know if it was a boy or a girl. I spent the other evening online looking up baby names that could be for a boy or girl, 1 in peticular kept jumping out at me, so I wrote it down and came up with a combination for middle names none of which David really liked but he picked the middle name. Our sweet angels name is Harlow Jamie Johnston... It feels good to have a name. We plan on getting a tree in Harlows memory and putting it in the garden. Sometimes its the little things that can make a world of difference. I am not saying I am all happy now and over it, I dont think that I will ever be over it.

I am sick today it started Monday with a scratchy throat, now its still scratchy and I got a cough like crazy, I am coughing so hard my head hurts. My nose is stuffing up too so its either a cold that is taking its time in coming around or its Allergies... My best friends today are vegetable soup in a veggie broth and mucinex and cough drops along with my inhailer.

I haven't been doing alot of tatting lately but I have been busy beading. Last week my best friend came over and she taught me a few things, I blame her for getting me addicted, maybe that is why I am sick she did say I had beading fever... ??? I may have to question her on this hee hee.

These are some pendants I made I did make earrings which were a bit smaller but they arent pictured here

In the coming weeks, there will be changes being made with my business / shop. I am excited but I am not telling a thing yet... You will just have to wait and see.

Last week my hubby bought me a present. AN EXPENSIVE PRESENT!!! A new camera.

He loves me lol

Here is a photo I snapped the other day.
SPRING is springing well its trying to anyways this week we had temps in the 60's 30's and 40's no wander I am sick.

So glad you are posting again. Big hugs and congratulations for your progess during this time of grief.

You may not know the sex of your lost child until you "meet" him or her in the afterlife (Please insert whatever appropriate concept applies for you.) but your heart will know. Trust your heart.

I totally understand why you would need a name for your baby that you lost. Yes, you are blessed with your wonderful family. I like the tatting that you have done. Plus I enjoy seeing the beading you are doing too.

I'm so happy you have found a book to help you work through the loss of your baby. You get through it but it never goes away. My sister lost one in a rather complicated problem. After 20 to 25 years, once in a while she'll comment that the one she lost would be a certain age and should be doing a particular thing in his life (she did know what the sex of her's was). I've been really worried about you for a while. I hope if you don't feel much better soon, that you'll get some medical and counseling help. I know it can be expensive (I've been through it and most of the time I didn't have much insurance) but if you can't do it for yourself- do it for your husband and children. The whole family will be better for it!
