The best laid plans...

Not too much sewing going on at my house for the time being.  I have next Monday through New Years off and I planned to work on my 1810 quilt project, but my dear grandmother (Tood) passed away last week and my family has been dealing with everything that comes with the death of a loved one.  I volunteered to help go through her house the week after Christmas to sort through all her paperwork, belongings to donate  etc. While doing some work there yesterday I found a letter she wrote to the whole family in July of this year that she intended to have read after her death, so she knew she didn't have much time left with us.  I'm positively devastated and I've lost my mojo in sewing, work, all of it.  We are still getting together as a family on Christmas, but it won't be the same without her.

  1. As painful as it is to read that letter, I hope it brings some measure of relief to your family. It is a tender mercy to know that she was at peace with what lay ahead, at least enough to write down her thoughts.
    I am so sorry for your loss.
