I wrote a book “Everlasting Blossoms” in Chinese and published in Taiwan 2011.

Since there are so many English speaking friends were amazed when they found out those pictures were taken from hand crocheted flowers!  They wished if they could understand what those unfamiliar writings were talking about.  And above all, they wondered if there is any instruction about how to crochet some flowers and butterflies?  Therefore I started trying my very best translate it into English.  English is not my mother langue  beside I immigrated to US at my late 40s.What I’m trying to say is: my English is not that great!

I’ve just finished my big and heavy project and would like to share with you.

Pray that I can get some feedbacks.

Pray that whoever read this “Life story of Everlasting Blossoms”  would tell me:

if they understood what I wrote?

If the story is interested?

If it is worth publishing?

Last of all, I need volunteer proofreader!

Oh! By the way, let me share me secret! I’m almost 80 years old. I lost the ability of moving the  left side of my body due to a stroke 14 years ago, I type only with my right hand!

Now I’m going to tell you what’s in this book”

  2. Welcome, fellow blogger. I am impressed with your blog and photos. Your English is just fine. I am a retired teacher and published my first book(A Past Worth Telling) and now blog weekly. I am also a sewing artist and pianist and am taking voice training. I adore any kind of hand work. Your is beautiful! I hope to see more of it. Happy blogging to you. I think age is in the mind. You have conquered your stroke, and I admire your tenacity! It was a lovely visit. Thank you.

      1. And maybe you can invent something to crochet with one hand while this invention does the work of your other hand. A robot? It would be a good project for a school or college to invent. You might inquire locally.

      2. Oh! That’s really a wonderful idea! It will benefit all the people like me. But to invent something I think young people of school or college, who had contacted someone with mobility problems. With great passion, wish to improve their lives. They may do some research. Who knows, maybe some day there will be some tools for the handicaps enjoy their lives! Won’t it wonderful. So I can crochet again. I’ll take very good care of my health. Wish someday I can crochet again! I’ll add it to be one of my topic of prayers.

      3. I know a high school computer science teacher who has his students work on projects to make the lives of others better. I imagine near where you live, you can ask a computer science or technology department if they have any such projects going on in their graduate departments at local colleges. I imagine medical colleges also enlist the talents of engineers to solve such problems. I doubt that it is that unique and maybe someone just needs to be asked if they have someone willing to solve your problem. I’ll say a prayer that it can be done.
