My darling Mother

Hello my friends,
I had some quilty things to share with you, but that will have to wait for another day.

I just wanted to let you know my darling Mother passed away last night around 4:00 am. I'm so glad Gregg & I got to spend some time with her before she went home.
Most of the time we were with her she was asleep due to the medication, but one lovely moment on Sun morning was when Gregg & I were alone with her just talking, when she opened her eyes & looked right at me & tried to talk. I think she was telling me goodby, & I so needed that special moment. My Mom is quite a fighter & I was hoping she would once again sit up & wonder what all the fuss was about.
I will truly miss her, she was a great lady.
Thank you for your love & support.

It's a new year

Happy New Year all. It is always exciting to start a new year, a new month, even a new day.

I would like to share with you a very special gift I received from my Internet friend Deb. She knows I love pink & Civil War fabrics, so she made me this beautiful pillow. Look at the tiny half sq. triangles! I have it sitting on a living room chair so I can look at it every day. From the bottom of my heart, Thank you Deb.

Now look at these darling scissors she also gifted me. The black filigree is so pretty & goes so
well in my pink sewing room

Gregg & I took a ride up to Reno on New Year's eve to see what the huge storms left. We heard there was lots of snow and boy was there. It looked like a picture post card, absolutely beautiful. As we drove through Truckee, the car thermometer read 4degrees. FOUR! I didn't get out of the truck there. Reno was a little warmer, it was 12. ha ha. We were toasty in the stores though. Next post I will show you goodies I found at The Windy Moon quilt shop that Gregg takes me to when we go to Reno.
It was such a fun day, just wish we would have remembered the camera. I know, silly of me, guess I was just so excited to get on the road.

That's it for today, Hugs to all,
