My dear sweet Uncle Tom died last week. He had been not been well for years, suffering a number of strokes but his spirit was always strong. My cousin gave the eulogy and as she said when the family got together the children always gathered around him. He was the "fun uncle". He kept little toys and candy in his pocket to pass out to the kids. He will be missed. On that side
of my family there are 16 in my generation and 14 of us were at his funeral. My family is a constant source of strength for me.
I appreciate the kind thoughts about my mother and her situation. we are working through it. It is very time consuming so I haven't spent much time in my sewing room. I was always love seeing what Belinda at Brown Dirt Cottage is doing. She was doing some churndashes last week that really appealed to me. So I took a few minutes and tried putting one together. Thanks Belinda for the inspiration.
I have put together a few blocks for the bottom of my grandson's whale quilt. My aunt uses this square in a square so I thought I would try it. I haven't quite decided how I want to do it. I have a vision so I will have to see if it works out.
Also found a precious nursery rhyme print at Walmart.
When you become a grandparent something happens to your brain. When I was at Walmart I just happened by the toy department and saw a little red tricycle. Oh well! he is enjoying it.
Good luck to our beloved Tarheels against Michigan State Monday night. I am so nervous!
