We are so SAD

We lost a great man.   My dad! It is never a good time but I am so happy he went fast. Dad was one of the most generous men I know.  I was teaching at Rosie's Calico Cupboard when I got a call from Geoff who found his grandpa dead of a heart attack.
Life is short.  Enjoy those you love.  Dad was so healthy we would never have imagined he would die so fast, but he was 88 years old. Our lives will never be quite the same.  But we loved him with all our hearts and he knew it!

My market plans have changed.  There is too much here for me to do. I won't be able to make it. I will miss seeing all my friends, but family needs me now.

Love you quilting friends! Thanks for following my blog.  Stay tuned.  Lots of new patterns coming your way.

Hi Joyce, I'm thinking of you and so aware of your sorrow. My Dad passed away in January at the age of 90. He also went quickly, for which I am grateful. How fortunate we have been to have wonderful fathers, and I know you were a blessing in his life as well.
