I hope you are having a Happy and Blessed Easter. Although it’s cloudy and wet outside, I can hear the birds chirping which means it will be a nice day. It has been a month since I’ve written a blog post and some significant things have happened in my life since the last post.
On March 31, my Mom passed away. She struggled for several years with a very difficult life after a stroke that left her paralyzed on her right side. For most of those years she lived at home in her small local community, but for six months in 2013, she lived with me. We had some good times and some difficult times in those six months. She was a quilter and always wanted to do more than she was actually physically able to do. I’m sure she’s in heaven now with all the fabric she could ever want and able to stitch everything she wants to stitch.
One of the things I have been working on in the past month has been to have CD’s made of some of my embroidery designs. These are almost ready and you may see some of them in the coming months in local quilt shops that also carry AccuQuilt GO! products.
Both of my children and their families (six grandchildren) came for my Mom’s funeral. As you know, one can never get all of the children to be still at the same time. Here are pics of the grandchildren (5 in one pic and the missing #6 in the next pic). The day after the funeral we took them all to Discovery Place in Charlotte so that they could play together and the adults could enjoy visiting too.
And this is a photo of the Koozies I have been crocheting for the grandchildren. My daughters are very particular about not drinking from plastic cups or bottles, so these Koozies will protect the table from scratches and help the little ones hold onto the jars.
And this is a butterfly from my new set of Butterflies and the Critters die.
Happy Easter to all
