    Pam it is so hard when someone so young dies. I am praying for peace for you and your family.
    Glad to hear your quilt is coming along. I look forward to seeing the pictures. I love all of the different blocks. I would love to make some of them. I am having a UFO weekend at my quilt retreat. I cancelled my class there and first will do my homework for a class next week. Then I am going to go thru my UFO pile. I hope to finish all of the ones I am taking. I still have the projects from last years classes that I haven't finished. One just needs to be layered and quilted the other I am doing some hand embroidery on then need to attach the applique pieces. Can't wat. Leaving in 2 hours:-)

    Pat, retreats are so much fun. I hope you get everything done you have planned. I spent my recent one and one last fall just working on my Irish quilt. Gave me a good jump start on what I needed to do at the time. Not to mention the input of ideas from other quilters. I love quilt retreats!

    Today was the funeral. It was a tough one. The tiny white casket and all the pictures made it hard. Ethan loved the Pixar Cars movie. There is a fan page on facebook and they somehow knew about Ethan. People from all over the world sent toy cars from the movie to be given out at the funeral. They received over 700 cars! The outpouring of love for this child and his family was truly heartwarming. They served pizza and chocolate chip cookies which were Ethan's favorites. Everything was very nice. They burial will be saturday. He will be cremated and the cremanes will be put in a Toy Story lunch box for the burial. After the funeral we walked out of the sanctuary to "You've Got a Friend in Me". Sorry to go on and on about this. I can't help it.
    You need to talk about it & writing about it online is so much easier than actually talking. My heart breaks for everyone who loved than sweet boy. My prayers are with you all.

    Pam, glad you are writing about your experiences and your loving memories of Ethan. I could almost hear the music and see the people there. Thank you for sharing with us and my prayers go with you and the family. It won't be easy, but remember, we are here to listen.

    Pam feel free to share anytime, we are here for all kinds of support.

    I have come down with a nasty cold, started out as allergies and now it is moving down to my chest. Not good for me with just one good lung. I am bundled up and going to stay on the couch. it seems that winter has returned to Texas, expecting freezing temps by the Sunday. UGH

    I have so much that needs to get done, but feeling like I do none will get done until I feel better.

    Pam, sounds like Ethan is very loved. Pizza and chocolate chip cookies, what a smart little boy

    so sorry to hear that you have a cold create.
    I have some friends, a couple, and he has one lung.
    My dh is on portable oxygen so I know why she is so careful with him.
    Good for you, taking care of yourself.
    Hope you'll be up and around and those things will be there waiting for you, but you've got your priorities straight
    It is a blessing, to be a blessing !

    Cindy it's good for you to rest right now. With all the weather changes it's hard to stay well. My husband also is always on oxygen. I have had something breathing issues too, but mine is due to the lupus.

    I actually think I will have made it through the day on my diet. ( I am up late, so now it's actually Saturday) I felt better today or rather Friday on my diet of eating better foods, and with my portion controls.

    I just hope I stay with it this time. Stay well everyone, and Cindy you get well.

    where is everyone hiding? we have been a quiet group this month. Are you watching the March madness baseball games???? I was asked if I wanted to be in the pot for the games, turned it down. I dont have to watch them anymore, no in my home that has to watch them.

    I am gonna try to get some quilty projects done today.
