My daughter picked two colors and in my heart I knew it would be turquoise and some kind of red.
I picked thirteen for lines of beads for the shoulder straps – at her age is when I decided to make my first daughter her parka. I don’t remember what age I was when I received my parka but I believe it was completed in 1992 – 1994.
Above is the shield that is the center piece front and back. I am semi satisfied – mostly due to a recent visit to the UAF Museum of the North which will be a later story due to significant discovery. I am at awe with findings that I want to share with great detail!
Sad tears are falling
Before the snow came falling down my flowers were still blooming. They are not lilac but it is close enough color to honor my dear sister/cousin Dawn Blythe Egoak. We love you and will miss you. 🌸 Dawn’s family, relatives and her many friends are hurting – please pray for them. She was full of love for her children and had memorable stories that’ll remain with us. Love you Dawn.
