Fondly Rembering

Fondly Remembering is the title I gave to this piece.  This piece was created with a portion of my mother's knitting.  My mother's exquisite knitting has wrapped her whole family of four children and fourteen grandchildren not only in garments but in love for many, many years.  Mom was always generous and the homeless too have been blessed with socks and mittens to keep the cold at bay.  As her dementia progresses I see her skills unraveling.  Although that saddens me I encourage her to continue knitting as she loves to keep her hands busy.  I incorporated watch and clock gears in this piece to signify the ravages of time that we all must face.
