Kimono, Heartache and 15 Bean Soup
I finished this little kimono Monday and it is off in the postal system somewhere...
I was in need of some cheerful colors and a fun little pattern.
The pattern was Koko Kimono,free on Lion Brand Yarn's site, and it filled a need I had. The colors are Sweetpea, Aqua and Pink Poodle in Vanna's Choice Baby. I added the little I-cord tie instead of the one the pattern called for. I wanted a little splash of pink. =) It made me smile.
This, on the other hand, caused a catch in my heart. Funny how you will be going along all fine-and-dandy, then you run across something like a tiny sock... left behind from your Little Man's last visit. For a moment, the ache of missing those little feet is overwhelming... Then, life goes on again.
And, you make yourself a pot of 15-bean soup with cornbread and a nice salad... and Nellie's Shortbread for dessert... Okay, yes. I use food for medication sometimes. But, hey, bean soup is healthy, no? Just don't know about the butter slathered on my cornbread... or that shortbread... Oh, well. It was good. And, comforting.
I'm linking with Sandi's Friday Favorites at the Whistle Stop Cafe.
Hope you find comfort somewhere in your day. Shalom.
