One year later

It has now been one year since my sweet hubby, Dave, left us and went home to heaven. I don’t even know how to express what this year has been like. So much has changed. We have all missed him dreadfully, but our family has rallied together and drawn closer in the grief. I’m so thankful that the intense sadness has been balanced out by the pure joy of watching … Continue reading

Review of 2015

For the last few years, I’ve posted brief summaries of the year as it ended. I haven’t been posting much lately, and with the loss of my sweet hubby, I was hesitant to do a review this year, but I thought I would try a mini review.

He was my chauffeur, my pack mule, my chief cheerleader. He believed in me. … Continue reading

Getting back in to the swing

I’m busy getting back in the swing of things! The first good news to share is that two of my secret quilts (ones I can’t show you yet) have been juried into a special exhibit called Circular Abstractions that Nancy Crow is putting together! My experimental quilt shown to the left was the first in this series, so it is similar in some ways, but these two new quilts pushed … Continue reading

Happy Father’s Day

If you’ve ever seen me speak in public, it’s entirely this guy’s fault. He’s the outgoing, social butterfly, and he’s continually pushing me to get past being an introvert. This month we celebrated our 34th anniversary. Wow, that’s a long time! It’s been a quiet blog-month, but it’s been anything but quiet here on the home front. We celebrated our anniversary earlier in the month by combining a pastors’ conference … Continue reading
