It's a sad day here at Andjareenas Place as I inform all of you about Mary Gardiner's passing. Mary had been waiting for a knee replacement and frequented the store for all the knitting, hooking and stitching groups in order to pass the time as her surgery date came nearer. We had lots of laughs and lots of Newfie jokes. Mary could tell one because she was one. We laughed with her and were supportive of her when her brother passed away suddenly. The knitters met today and were stunned at the news as it was quite a shock to all of us. We will miss her greatly.
I picture Mary knitting in heaven with a big grin on her face a sewing machine not to far away and a beautiful piece of embroidery on display.
