My children were born in the 70’s. We were fortunate to have two volunteer organizations comprised of women who had breastfed and were trained to help others, La Leche
League and Nursing Mothers Association. I, too, had bleeding nipples and was given wonderful advice. I do not know if these groups are still in existence.
had a mother who fussed about the babies not getting sufficient nourishment. They had only breast milk until 6 months. Both were healthy, rather chubby little ones. Both are healthy adults and have never suffered from allergies.
Beautiful photos. There is nothing offensive or sexual about breastfeeding. Best for mom and baby.
I always look forward to the postings of your afghans. Your color combinations are beautiful. Thank you for sharing.
Noticed the china in Thanksgiving photo, Russell Wright. Now very collectible.
I like this pullover. No projects as yet on Ravelry. Would like to know if knit per directions, would bottom curl?
The buttons are perfect and cat is adorable, so realistic. Noticed your pottery and immediately thought Pennsylvania.
Sometimes work on computer while researching on the iPad. Then, I realize that the info typed is not showing on the proper screen. I, also, have tried to open the door to the house with the car keyfob and have been known to swipe my paperback to turn the page.
Jessica-Jean, your blanket is an inspiration. Love it!
Beautiful in every way, knitting, colors, pattern. You are an artist.
Saved the pattern. Thank you.
After years of lurking, I have finally started sending a few comments. I miss you and your afghans when time goes by without a post from you. They are always beautiful. Your color combinations amaze me. Thank you for showing them to us.
Very creative use of beads. Love the starry night.
So cute. I can hear him purr as he waits for a head rub.
Definitely a glove clip. I collect old purses and sometimes display vintage gloves with the bags using a glove clip. Does anyone remember the gadget that enabled one to hang their purse on the edge of a table while lunching with ladies? They were jewelry-like. I recall one in the shape of a poodle.
I was a bit wary of Lion Brand. Their beautiful window enticed me. So happy I dropped in. The clerks are friendly and well-informed. Most had projects on the go. They did take time to make recommendations. I asked permission to take a photo of a garment on display, no problem. There were knitters sitting around a table in the rear. Everyone was welcoming. My daughter lives in NY. Upon my request, she purchased a kit I had seen online. They asked if she was a teacher and gave her a discount. She must look like a teacher. My daughter does not do needlework. After our first visit, she asked, “What is a notion?”. She, also, thought the atmosphere “Cult-like”. I am in no way associated with
LB. Just wanted to let others know that the shop is worth a visit. Not open on Sat.
