Afghan - Mountain Home Sunset

Sometimes God blesses us by allowing our path to cross the path of someone truly great. Such was the case when I taught school in Balmorhea, Texas. He was not an actor. He was not a great author. He never appeared on national T.V. He was a quiet man who lived his life in dignity, integrity, character, and respect for others. He was the principal of Balmorhea High School. The students not only loved him but respected him as well. His wife wanted to take a vacation once and he told me he told her he would take her anywhere she wanted to go as long as he could be home in the evening to see the sun set over his West Texas Mountains. A few years ago I received a phone call telling me he had died of cancer. I attended his funeral. It was at the gravesite late in the afternoon when an old cowboy stepped up to the grave, strapped on his guitar, and begin to sing, “Headin’ for the last roundup”. The sun was beginning to cast it afternoon reflections on the beautiful West Texas Mountains. It was as he would have wanted it to be. This afghan is a tribute to the man for whom I had great respect – Jack Hoffman. .  All Afghan designs are completely hand made and each design is produced only once.  Afghans use Swedish Embroidery designs on cotton Monk's Cloth.  Each Afghan is lined on the back with silk and named.
