I finished my Hour a Day top -- I only added 3 of the 7 borders -- borders are not my favorite thing to put on a quilt! vbg I do like the quilt a lot and it was fun to make. Thanks, Judy, for another great design.
We lost my favorite sister in law yesterday. She was Bill's baby sister, Jean. We had a couple of days to prepare, but I don't think one can really prepare for the finality of it all. Jean was a true free-spirit, a maverick, a fun-loving, hard working person that literally would give you the shirt off her back (she actually gave my daughter a shirt she had admired!). She and her husband farmed for most of their married life and when they retired from farming, they bought a golf course. They worked 18 hour days 365 days a year for 10 years before Dean died. She sold the golf course a year or two later and spent her retirement traveling and living life to the fullest. She will be truly missed.
We've had a couple of life-altering events in a matter of weeks here and I've been thinking for quite a while that I needed to take a break from the computer. So, I'm going to take a sabbatical, some time for some introspection, reflection, reconnection with the outside world and my family. I won't be gone from the computer completely, but I'm going to resign or go no-mail on most of my lists and I'm going to take a break from blogging for a little bit of time. I hope to come back refreshed with a new perspective on things.
I'm thankful Jean was a part of my life for the past 26 years.
