Sad but true, I have not been doing much sewing lately.
I am almost finished with a top that I am considering submitting to a magazine.
So that means no photos yet.
I did finish a baby quilt but have not had time to get photos taken of that either!
It's actually bound and everything!
What I have been doing is spending time with my dad and my family more.
I see him almost every day.
I feel like I am in a funk right now too.
We just lost a really great guy that has been a friend of our family's since I can remember.
He was slightly older than me and my dad just adored him.
Our dad's were good friends and so that's how I knew him.
My dad used to go to all of his sporting events while he was in high school then followed him while he played at Grand Valley State.
His twin boys also played football at GVSU and my dad never missed a game.
He is going to be devistated when I tell him the news
that he passed away from kidney cancer yesterday.
It is just so sad.
My dad's best friend has a son that is also dying of cancer of the throat and
my dad is really sad about that too.
I can't even Skype or Facetime with him as he can no longer speak.
I'm not sure my dad can make the 5 hour round trip to go to the funeral so I am not sure what to do about either of these things.
I am hoping that life cheers up a little bit soon.
Sorry to be so melancholy but sometimes that's the way life goes right?
I am hoping to get some photos of that baby quilt soon, it's adorable.
The second one is at the quilter's but I have decided to try something different on it.
It has the words sunshine all over it so I am thinking of putting an off center sun something like this one
Then having my long armer baste it and making rays go out from the spikes across the rest of the quilt.
What do you think of that idea?
This block pattern gave me the idea.
I guess there is a little creativity going on over here, it's just low key at the moment!
For my lovely finish for the month of March I would like to get this second baby quilt quilted. I will link up and hope for the best!
