    Janice, I'm so very sorry to hear of your mother's passing. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Even when we are prepared for a loved one's passing, it still seems impossible when it actually happens. (((Hugs!)))

    Janice I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope her leaving peacefully on her own terms brings you a measure of comfort.

    Janice, my love and prayers for you and your family also. There's nothing I can say to make the pain of losing her better. Just know that time will ease the sharpness for you. Each person grieves at their own pace. Take the time that you need for you. We'll all be with you in our thoughts. We love you.

    Here is Cricket and her little baby chick. She is a great little mom, one of the other mom's chicks got away from their own mom and was distress crying, she brought her baby over and covered both. Gary rescued the baby and gave it back to it's mom since Cricket isn't big enough for 2.

    So sorry to hear this sad news, Janice. It's so heartbreaking to say goodbye to our parents. Hope you are comforted that she passed on her own terms. Our prayers are with you and your family now.

    Janice, I am so sorry my heart is breaking for you. Your Mom sounded like she was a strong woman, she decided on something and went for it. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of my Mom. This won’t be an easy time for you and I’m sure it’s stirring up your grief for your sister. So sorry my friend.

    I've been sewing and knitting baby stuff this weekend. DarcyShannon, was it you who showed this fabric as what you will be sending in the next Boom? After it was shown I hunted some down online so I could make baby clothes out of it. So cute, with the bear, fox and raccoon characters.

    Janice, I am really sorry you lost your mom, especially when you thought you might have her at least a few more days. Thankfully you were able to honor her wishes to go home to die. You have all our support and we share your grief. It's coming up on 2 years for me without my mom, and I miss her every day. May God hold you close as you grieve.

    Good morning, Boomers. DH and I are adjusting to a much quieter and emptier house. We didn't realize how regimented our we'd become (mom needed a very strict med and meal schedule) until we no longer had to do it. Suddenly we're all over the place every aspect of our lives, except DH's work. Me, I'm just drifting around aimlessly so I plan to start reworking the Boom 23 schedule. My original dates are blown to bits but I should have it sussed out within a couple of days if I can keep focus, that's a big if. I think it will help me. I'll pm admin for the ok to go with 23 once I've got the dates set. I'll keep you updated here.

    Again, thank you all for your lovely notes, cards, pms and emails. I will be replying to each and every one of you. Your kindness is deeply appreciated.

    edited to add: the new avatar is Mom's cat, a sometimes mean cat let me tell you, who is lost right now without her. He's 7 or so and now ours.

    Looking forward to BOOM 23!

    I have been a long-time lurker of the Boom threads as they have both inspired and terrified me! If I was to think about joining the next one does it work if I am international?

    Janice, although we have never ‘spoken’ on here I am sorry to hear about your mum.

    LOL, That is the funniest thing, I hope it works and keeps her and her chicks warm.

    RJLinkletter - I encourage you to join! I was just like you prior to the last BOOM always lurking, pondering and fretting at the same time I jumped in for Boom 22 and made 19 unique blocks, received 20 amazing blocks in return and had a wonderful time! The gals in here are super fun and the process of making for others, with their inspiration fabrics, is so very rewarding! I say 'Do it!'

    RJLinkletter, there are four mailings in this swap: 1)fabric packets to Janice, 2) fabric packets back from Janice, 3) finished blocks to Janice, and 4)Finished blocks back from Janice. We use padded flat rate envelopes for the shipments, which now cost $8 each. So it now costs us $32 in shipping (domestic US mail) to "play". If you can afford 4 such shipments at international rates, I'd say 'go for it!'

    Never regret. If it's good, it's wonderful. If it's bad, it's experience.
