Have you ever made anything for someone and it turns out to be a memorial?
I recently made these Van's look-like slippers for my grandsons. When I posted this onto my Facebook page one of my friends saw it and ordered a pair. She wanted pea green. I saw on the web that Lion's Brand Vanna's Choice had a "Pea Green", but I could not find it here where I live. So I found this "Seaspray Mist", which is also a Vanna's Choice yarn. I took a picture of it and messaged it to my friend and asked if it was ok. I told her I could either look more, or I could order it from the web if she really preferred the Pea Green. She said the Seaspray Mist would be just fine!.
Don't you think they worked up beautifully?
I was nearly done with my crocheting of the slippers when her son posted that she had died. Needless to say along with all of her other friends, I was in total shock! She was young (early 50's). She had had some health issues, but we all thought she was getting better. I understand she passed away in her sleep. I was chatting with her on FB the night before she went to visit the Lord. She is no longer in pain. God bless my friend. She was an amazing person.
I contacted her son. I told him that I was making the slippers for her. Initially she was going to buy them from me, but I simply could not sell them now. I asked him if he still wanted me to finish them. He said yes.
I wonder if these slippers will ever be worn, or simply left as a memorial for a wonderfully kind person?
Rest in peace my friend. Rest in peace. You are thought about from so many people. I know your husband and you son miss you. Your friends miss you.
