The Absence of Conversation



I want to read this book, but I am not sure it will explain my past or present very well.

What happens when sisters have no conversations, for many many years. I need a book about that. Or simply an answer.

I have two sisters where I haven't had any meaningful conversation (really no conversation at all) since I left home in 1985. I have 3 sisters. One, I call from time to time and talk some. But not much since "The Homecoming". I don't dialogue with either of my brothers either. One I do, the other, I don't think I even know his phone number.

What happened to us when we were young that resulted in this isolation from each other? I can tell you that I'm not the only one in my family enduring this. None of us relate. We're relations that don't relate.

It really plagues my thoughts at times. But I never EVER pick up the phone, because well, what would I say?

We aren't little kids playing on the jungle gym or swings anymore. We're all grown up and older...and complete strangers.

Warm Little Sweetness

I must admit that I have become quite fond of making little bitty sweaters.   It all started on a recent trek to India traveling for business. I needed to carry just enough yarn to keep my busy bee hands occupied during the evenings in my hotel room. There are just so many hats a person can make, right?  Anyway, having limited quantities of yarn, I decided to give a small sweater a go.  This is the first one I created. I had just the perfect little buttons to add! (It really is amazing what one might find in their cosmetic bag) I love it.  This sweater is also featured on the Pinque Peacock blog   since I used her buttons.  (Go visit and see the buttons up close) This makes the sweater a really one of a kind project! This next one is perfect for a little preemie.  It's so tiny, but features a great big snowflake! Close up of the snowflake…. I also sewed on one of the StampinUp! Frosted Finishes Embellishments.  I think it finished it off nice
