One of my coworker's mother-in-law is suffering from Alzheimer's. Apparently she is in a latter stage of it because now she does not recognize anyone and she only responds with this same sound, no matter what the question or statement. It is quite sad. This woman, from what I hear was a fabulous crafter. There was not a craft that she didn't do, so as a result her house is filled with all of these things. Now my co-worker will be returning to Brazil to spend the summer with her daddy and she wants to go ahead and clean out some of her mother-in-law's craft things because she and her husband live in his momma's house and there is not room for their personal things, due to his momma's stash. So....my coworker's husband told me to come over and take anything that I would like and as much as I would like. It feels sort of strange to me, but I'm going to believe that his momma would want someone to use her things that would appreciate it.
I am supposed to stop by next week and look at what is there. Thankfully my coworker and her husband have already spent many hours sorting through the materials and placing them in storage bins. I will let you know how this turns out. And I think I can safely safe, I don't think I should buy any yarn for a while.
Remember that nursery rhyme, "There Was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe"?
Well, I don't want to hear,
There was this girl, Libby, who lived in a shoe
She had so much yarn, she didn't know what to do!
Then, they really will call me an old maid! (Seriously, that's not even funny anymore.) :-|
