Ladies I hope you are all safe from this massive hurricane. Lots of storms all across Minnesota but nothing compared to what they are forecasting for your storm.

Tomorrow is closing day

My mother passed away Saturday Morning. My sister was with her. I am doing ok right now it just feels a bit odd. This made the loss of 3 family members for the month of August. It can stop now. Hospice was great.
I have a block sitting on my cutting table that I started to put together the beginning of the month and it is still sitting there. Maybe in a few days I can get back to sewing it together.

Juliasb, you are in my prayers. Losing loved ones so close together can really throw you and make it hard to carry on. But, brighter days will come again so hang in there and take care of yourself.

Juliasb -- I am so sorry for your loss. Hugs and prayers for you and your sister and all your family. As bibliostone said, be kind to yourself as you grieve. Be sure to eat well and drink lots of water. The piecing will be there when you are ready for it. I hope you can find comfort knowing that your loved ones are free from Earthly cares. Their love stays with you and they left knowing you loved them.

Terriamn -- yay to the closing! Aug 29 will be a positive date for you and that is a good thing! I will toast to your closing at today's extension of the hurricane party.

BTW, all is calm in central MS right now. If we were in any danger, I'd be outta here by now. It will be a tropical storm and I love all weather events so it will be exciting tomorrow. Watching the storm work its way inland is appealing to the geographer in me.

Yeah... no storm yet up here in central MS. The dog is really weather sensitive, and he's hunkered down in fear. He must feel a change in barometric pressure or something.

This is the bargello I've been making, while waiting for Boom blocks to come home. It's my first bargello. All batiks.
