Thank you all so much for your kind words and prayers.....they have meant the world to me. My Dad was laid to rest Saturday with a beautiful latin Mass attended by all his beloved family and friends. The wake, funeral and mercy meal were a culmination of his life. I couldn't have been more pleased with the way things went and how we as a family said our goodbyes. We are all at peace and happy to know he is at peace. So thank you all from the bottom of my heart.....you make a difficult week easier to deal with.
This is a picture of my Dad surrounded by some of his grandchildren and most of his great-grandchildren. He was so proud them.....he would light up whenever they were around. He went home to his final reward yesterday and while I am happy for him, I'm very sad for those of us who loved him....he will be sorely missed.
I had high hopes of joining in on this weekend's quiltathon hosted by Judy but that plan never really came to pass. I did sew some here and there....stitched up a couple more of the small quilts for NIN. I'm happy I did those but I had planned on much more.... There is another one planned for March 18 and I plan to spend the day stitching away. :)
I didn't purchase any new fabric and I did use some in the little quilts...not sure how much. I haven't really kept a good record of what I've been using but I do know that I have using some and I'm happy with that.
I missed joining in on Libby's Sadie Hawkins ironing board game but here is what mine looks like anyways
Some of you have asked me where I got the pattern for the wonky cats....it's in this Buggy Barn book.
The highlight of the weekend was seeing Dave Mason in concert tonight. We were so close I could see the sweat dripping onto his guitar strap. Our table was right in front of the stage. We had a ball and after all these years the man still plays a mean guitar.
