All About You in 52

I'm taking part in a year long challenge from a fellow Fiskateer Debby. It's going to be a different topic every week but more about leaving something behind for your children etc to remember you by. Here's a link to the challenge on her blog

This week was about someone who influenced you in life and for me it was a friend named Becky. She bought the theatre next to my consignment shop in downtown Watertown. I was totally impressed with her and thought she had it all......she was pretty, she owned a fun business, she traveled & owned her own home. We started hanging together and she became a sister I never had but she also pushed me to be more then I was both in business and personally. The sad part is I have lost touch with her now for almost 10 years besides futile attempts on the internet to find her. I've journaled on the tag that says FRIEND and it slides under the picture. Funny thing that after I made this layout I went back online and spent a few hours trying to locate her sister who owned the family theatre in Ashland, Wisconsin but sad to say she also sold her theatre.......but memories are good and someday we just might reconnect! God does work in mysterious ways.

I can't believe you made an afghan in less than a week. I would take me years.-maybe even longer!

Loved the story about yout layout and friend. I hope someday you can reconnect.

Good luck keeping up with your you and 52 project. Don't seem too time consuming and easy to keep up with (more than I can say for Project 365). haha.

Have a good weekend, talk to you later!

Hope you find your friend. I have had the same best friend for over 50 years. Friends are to be cherished, so hope you can locate her. The afghan is a beauty. You are so talented. I once tried to knit, but my theory was to fishish the project and what it most looked like- that's what it was. Love your new blog.
