The Seamstress

A painting reflecting how I spend some of my time ["The Seamstress" by Stanley Reed, 1941.  From Karen's lovely blog!] This period painting reminds me of the current "Call the Midwife" show. I love seeing the antique (now) sewing machine too!

Here are the twin granddaughters wearing the Easter dresses which I sewed for them and delivered in person last month! Nina Kate and Sophie Jane on Easter morning!

However, sewing and quilting aside.....right now it is time for real spring cleaning, as I have out-of-state family coming this weekend. Not only cleaning, but toddler-proofing! Grandson Wes (below) is coming! Whoo-pee!


I have not been blogging as often as I once did!  We have had many things going on, mostly Mom not bouncing back (at almost 90 this year, it is understandable) and now in long term care. Much time has been spent going through boxes looking for significant, important papers, and finding ways to fund the long term care...($6,000/month).
I hope she will recognize some of the family who are coming to see her this weekend!  They included her latest great grandson, my grandnephew, Mark, who was born on March 7!  I can't wait to meet him!

Here is Mark in his mother's arms just before his baptism!

Sweet little granddaughters in pretty dresses!
Sorry your mom is having health problems. My mom had long term health insurance which has really helped, but when the funds from the sale of her home run out, not sure how we are going to do it! I think most people who live long enough end up on Medicaid after all their financial assets are depleted.

Mom has long term care insurance which has kicked in....however, because if rising nursing home costs, the insurance doesn't cover the cost. She, too, has money from selling her home...and as you say eventually Medicaid.
