Caroline, Lainey and I spent some time this afternoon with Robin, Amber and Baby Charles Moreman. We saw Big Charles, but just briefly. He probably wanted to avoid all the girl talk. We had a lot of catching up to do . Robin's mother Linda is going through intense chemotherapy at Emory University. Amber has been recovering from surgery. It was great to catch up with them and to see their newest family member, Baby Charles, who is Robert's son.
We will be keeping the Moreman's in our prayers as Linda goes through her therapy. She is going to be staying with Robin while she is undergoing this treatment.
After our visit, I did some work on my knot trivets. I saw these in some of the nautical shops we visited in New Bern NC. I am too cheap to buy one for myself, and as usual I told my self "'I can make that." My girls hate it when I say that because they say I don't ever make it and we end up wishing we had bought whatever it is that I thought I could make. This is my opportunity to prove them wrong.
I found a tutorial at Design Sponge for knot trivets. Steve and I found some colorful line and bought it at Lowe's. I tried to make the trivet while aboard the boat but ended up making a mess and getting frustrated. I worked on the trivets when I got home. I finished one, but ripped it apart about 3 times before I was satisfied. I have complete four now. Pictures coming soon...
