 Mom passed on May 9th. We had some special moments with her that we will cherish. So very hard to say good bye to her. Here is a picture of her with her favored Ruby Dog.
Earlier in May, we celebrated Luke's 2nd birthday. Walks, cookies and stuffed hedge hogs were the main events.
And finally last week, I finished the blue buckeye quilt for my co-worker!
Just couldn't get myself to hardly sew in the past months but I finished and she was quite pleased to receive it.
I have followed scores of tips from Bonnie Hunter but I think this is the first time I have actually completed a version of one of her patterns. I love her use of scraps and hope to do more.
It wasn't till I had taken this picture and was texting it to my sister, that I noticed the lovely "humility block" on the lower right!  Oh well...humble am I.
DH and I are now embarked on finishing up the sorting and clean up at Mom's house as well as getting our own house in order. We are not speedy by any means and frankly are ok with that at the moment. There are lots of emotions to feel and process and energy levels to be restored. We are just taking it a step at a time and enjoying as much of it along the way as we can.
Yesterday we took the pups to the beach again and enjoyed watching Luke run like a horse and play with Sabra in the waves. A gorgeous day!
