Been catching up on all of the posts. I took a little break with Christmas. I use my dining room table to sew on so with a large family of 6 children 4 that are married with, and 9 grandchildren, I figured I needed to clean my table off. It was a really good thing I did. This past Tuesday my brother in law passed away so we have had a house full.
My brother in law was 66 and had been in a nursing home for about 13 years and was very crippled with arthritis which began after he had Stills Disease as a child. He had not been sick except that he had been dropped from a lift a few weeks before Thanksgiving. As far as we know he passed away from natural causes.
It has been a sad time but I will be getting my quilting back out soon to occupy my time. The sad thought I had was I had purchased some fabric prior to Christmas and was planning on making him a Turning Twenty for next Christmas.
