Some of you may know that my mom makes the tea towels here at the boutique. This week she was preparing to start making a fresh batch of towels when a small disaster struck.
First, let me give some background. More than 10 years ago my parents had to move out of the farm house I grew up in because the mold levels in the basement(from numerous floods) had caused my mom to start having horrible hives on a daily basis. She went through testing for many years trying to stop the hives and finally found a asthma shot that she has to get every 2 weeks. She is much better now but she avoids mold as much as she can.
Well, this week a leak in the water softener was discovered. It has seeped through a wall, china hutch and the kitchen floor. Mold was discovered in the china hutch, so my mom packed up her important belongings (her embroidery machine being 1st on the list) and headed to my sisters. They tell her it will be about 3 months to fix.
But what I think is funny. The move hasn't slowed her down. In the same call telling me about the move and to call her on the cell phone, she is asking me what towels I need. She's already back to work.
Hello, Welcome to my first blog post here at Azure Sky Gifts. Now if you have followed me through my pottery career, you know that I had a pottery blog for many years. Over there I talked mostly about my journey in clay but sometimes wrote about other adventures.
My Plan for this blog is to post about anything from an artist I would like to feature to my vacation photos or my children.
I guess I will start by saying for those that don't know, that my youngest son, Jassim is engaged. Some of you may have met him here at the boutique last summer. I am in the process of looking at dresses and planning the rehearsal dinner. It's very exciting. He will marry in July in Blowing Rock. I will update here when there is more to tell.
I will try to post at least once a week. Please comment to let me know that you are reading this and what else you would like to hear about.
