Edgar Allen Poe Tribute Socks for Super Sock Scarefest 2008

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
“‘Tis some Sock,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door
Only this, and nothing more.”

Toe up, short row heel and raven feathers

pain from paradise to PortAPrince

24 hours ago I dropped my children off at my mother’s to sit with beloved friends who were fighting for their daughter in law’s life. Stephanie was feeling run down and went to the ER, houre later she was flown to Sacramento with bits of her family in tow. Including her 6 wk old daughter, Evelyn , 5 yr old son Gavin, husband, brothers and cousins…culminating in 4 generations gathering to proclaim their love for her.
No cause, no reason, no idea how to treat this beautiful 27 yr old who was losing blood as fast as they put it in. little by little Stephanie’s body shut down. The amazing CICU staff brought her back from the brink, tried every treatment comprehensible. I doubt if Dr House himself could solved this one.
I have never seen anything more heart breaknmg than a daddy whispering to his infant baby that her mommy loves her while the staff are asking where he stands on DNR. So strong, so tender.
Stephanie stopped breathing, and the last machine turned off as a bell announced the birth of a brand new baby, we think the 10th born that day. Very surreal, very complete.
Baby Evelyn has been admitted to the hospital, pre pnemonia. Blood work being done since during her mother’s mysterious illness she was still on breast milk. Pray for the family, pray for Justin, Cat and Brian, all the mourning hearts. Pray for baby Evie safety and health. Pray for answers and healing.

Saturday we picked up the girls from their rosebowl adventure and we
hung around Sac for a bit. B Dalton is sadly going out of buisness but happily we got to bring home a sack of books.

And then i got to meet up with Marisol of Purls just wanna have fun
Sac was almost half way between us, so it was a great rendevous spot.
Marisol will be joining us at Stitches West, so be sure to stop by Booth #1138Intwined Studio


i am currently addicted to RobinHood thanks to netflix
its nice to have something we all want to watch and don't have to send the kids to bed first.

so if arrow motifs show up in the socks, you will now why
