Unfinished Business of the Hooky Variety

Mum was crocheting a blanket.
I'm not sure of the size of it,
 because I haven't felt able to take it from its storage bag.  
 The choice of colours complement each other beautifully
 There are reminders about stitches and patterns tucked away.
 Even the bag it's in is lovely.
Just look at that scalloped edging.
I think it's Mum's work, but perhaps my sister made it.
I don't crochet myself, but I have a plan ...

It looks beautiful and so does that bag.

Take it easy, there's no rush. It can stay in that bag for a while yet..

I was going to say what Sian says - both look lovely as they are and will not get to any harm sitting as they are for a long while

Both the bag and the glimpses of the blanket are lovely. I found it poignant to hold my Mum's unfinished embroidery. Thinking of you ...

It is good to have a plan; lovely crocheted bag & yes the colours we peeked at of the blanket are nice. Thanks for the suggestion of a tour of the Dales courtesy of Attic24.

take your time. Everything will hurt at the moment. I still have a box that belonged to my Dad and I haven't done more than glance at the contents - he died in 2003. We are working through my father-in-law's house and each item has emotional ties for my Sister-in-law. We are fortunate that he owned his house so we don't have to clear it quickly before the council move in to take over.
Things will catch you in the throat and make your eyes water for years so don't worry about it when it happens

You'll know when the time is right to look at it properly. One day you'll pick up that bag and just feel that you can take it out and feel your mum with every stitch that is there. It really is a beautiful colour combination, and one day I know it will take pride of place somewhere in your home.
Don't rush yourself, let every day bring you a little more strength.

That bag was one of the first things I made back in 2009. Mum had a good eye for colour when she picked the wool for that blanket. If it's going where I think it's going they will be really pleased to have it. xxx
