Taking Some Family Time

ed

Our family lost a very special member on Friday, my father in law passed away after a two and half year battle with cancer.    He loved to read my blog and see what has happening at the Tamarack Shack and would tell anyone that listened to go to my blog to see all the beautiful quilts.  I know this as those people would email me to say Ed gave them my blog address and they enjoyed browsing my site.  That always made me smile knowing how proud he was of what I had accomplished.    You can see in the picture above he loved the Ragtime quilt I made him years ago, it was always on his lap or near his chair.   It wouldn’t surprise me if he was reading one of my blog posts in this picture!  

I’m going to a take a week or two off quilting so if you’re waiting for a quilt to be finished by me I just wanted you to know why there will be a bit of a delay.

    Each time we embrace a memory,

  17. Kathy, I am so sorry for your loss. Please do take time for yourself and your family. My husband passed away in January and I have learned a lot about grieving this year. It is a process that cannot be rushed. The symtoms can come and go. Just be patient with yourself and your family and know that there are a lot of people out here thinking about you.
