She's an accomplished sewist, knitter, and crocheter, tireless go-getter, and still keeps on going, like the Energizer Bunny.
The day or two after Christmas she says, "Okay, if you want me to make anything for your Christmas presents next year, you have to tell me now!" For a while T asked for two sweaters every year, and he has an amazing collection that will last him until he is 93 himself.
So we get out the books, look on the internet, and choose what we want.
Last year M and I chose the same afghan. What's nice about choosing a year ahead of time is I almost always forget what I ordered.
Christmas is about surprises, so that's what happened again this year.
Trudy used all her scrap yarn and bought more to complete two big afghans. She says it's something she likes to do while watching television in the evening. Trudy doesn't like to just watch; she has to have a project going. I can relate.
So Happy Birthday, Trudy! The Sizzler salad bar awaits.
