The memorial piece will have a penny dated for each year of my mother’s life.
I have a stash of pennies, but did not have one for each year from 1930 to 2018. Found a coin shop in town that had reasonably priced pennies to complete the piece.
Interesting that 1943 is a steel penny.
When the loom knitting is done, the pennies attached, and important years indicated, a box will be made of cedar as a home for the memorial piece.
Normally I would work all day to complete a project. But I have to limit my (repetitive) working time to five rows per day. I had surgery on my hand in June, with some working too much too soon complications. Developed scar tissue with extreme sensitivity. Still working to gain back finger strength and manual dexterity.
Dash enjoyed helping with my favorite desensitizing therapy.
