Well, it was a weekend of reuniting with cousins and meeting new cousins after 20 plus years for some of us at my Grandmother's 100th birthday celebration. Life is ironic and painful. To think my son lived only 24 years and my grandmother has lived an amazing 100! Wow, it boggles the mind. She is the DNA that made all who is now the "family" I made the most of my weekend as I enjoyed the company of long lost relatives who have fallen on the wayside since the passing of my father 22 years ago...things happen. Life gets in the way of life sometimes. I got some jeans from my cousin who lives in Tupper Lake to make her a pair of Memory jeans!! She gave me a couple patches she would like on them and told me to "do whatever you want" to them. So... here is the latest item made for my neice who is 24..she and my son were only 1 month and a few days apart in age. She is going to Tennessee to attend a 4 day music festival and campout!! Yay what fun. The photo is of the skirt I made her. The heart made from a piece of my son's jeans. I have a couple items (one pair of jeans that he had cut off, a pair of shorts, a tee shirt and a tank top) of which I cut small pieces to add to jeans made for family members only. So the weekend if over, the celebration of a long lived life, the reunion of long lost cousins and its back to reality (which sucks) but also back to work on my jeans which is my sanity. Soon I will be packing the car full of jeans and headed to Venice Beach!! Next show is June 11th then June 24th and then who knows what day I will be on Venice Beach but I will be keeping you followers posted!!! Thankyou all for being a part of DRD Designs and for helping to keep my son's memory alive in the hearts of all who love him.
