Ta-Ta to Summer 2016
Our pond has been a blessing this summer. A place to rest and reflect. Terry and my conversations have been about just about everything you can imagine. He is missing his father so much and we have talked a lot about all aspects of death and what happens after someone leaves this earth. Terry's dad had a real fear of death and did not want to let go.
His sister just completed Chemo and is cancer free. But when the surgeon removed the tumor, he also removed cancer cells they did not know that she had. Her doctor tells her the cancer will return...somewhere. Her options are to do nothing...take radiation...take chemo pills for the rest of her life which cause her so much illness. She has opted to do nothing and take her chances. It's a hard thing to hear and pray for her.
My daughter is moving, yet again. She has been renting a house from the Church she attends. The Church building has been for sale and the idea was that when it sells she would be able to buy the house she is renting. Yet another dart tossed out from the Universe...the Church sold and they buyers want to buy the house. Laurie will move this weekend to a house she will have the opportunity to buy...the closing is today. She chose to rent to own for the first year. It's a nice house in a quiet neighborhood, but quite a bit farther from work and in a different town than where she lived. The option to rent for the first year and beyond is probably good so she can see if she likes it.
I am done sorting fabric. I am getting rid of a lot of things in my room that I have been keeping for no good reason. Each time you do this, it gets more and more easy. I have decided what my first quilt will be and what fabrics I will use. It will be a VERY EASY project. The objective is to use fabric and enjoy what I am doing, so with my present state of mind I need to keep it easy.
Got a favorite really easy beginner quilt pattern? Let me know. I'm interested!!
