I was planning on going to Retreat starting on Thursday. I made 16 Thread Catcher, for prizes. I prepared all the projects I wanted to work on. I was mentally starting to pack.
Then the worst thing happened, DH younger brother (54) had a heart attack and passed away Sunday. He was shoveling snow/ice/slush for mature neighbors. We are all in shock. But the next shock . . . . The services are Sat (day 3 of retreat) and DH would like to go the day before, to visit with his mother. Now did I also mention, it is 3 plus hours drive, one way. And the retreat lodge is not on the way to grandmas house.
I emailed my quilting buddies about the sad news, BUT family is MORE important then making quilt. They all understand . . . . that this is one of those 'life gets in the way' of my quilting.
