My mom's amazing mother-in-law

My mom and I stopped in to see her first husband's mother twice last weekend. Saturday's visit was spur-of-the-moment; Sunday's was to bring her 7 1/2 ounces of navy yarn and the photos we'd talked about the day before. Although she's complaining about feeling weak, she's as sharp as a tack and keeping busy. In addition to making a pair of slippers for her son-in-law, she's trying to figure out what to make for each of the 32 people in her bible study group this year. Everything I thought of (dish cloths, Christmas tree ornaments, pot holders) she's already done once and doesn't want to repeat. Considering she's 102 and has been doing this for many, many years, coming up with ideas that are novel but not overly complex isn't easy.
