You may have noticed that I have removed the sections of T-Shirt Quilts and Memory Quilts from my website. As many of you already know My Son Jason was killed in a motor cycle accident on August 17, 2008. Since that time I have struggled with many things, One of them is how to communicate some changes in my life to my many loyal customers and to those new customers who email with request. So after many months I have chosen to create this blog. I hope that you will check back often and feel free to post your self.
I have decided at least for now that I do not have the desire to make T-shirt quilts or Memory quilts. My Grandchildren want memory quilts from Daddy's clothes so those will be the last ones that I will make. At least this is how I feel for now and as life this could change again some day. I know that these quilts bring great comfort, they are however hard to work on emotionally.
I will try to post some instruction very soon, on how to make the quilt yourself and as always would be happy to do the quilting for you.
I would like to Thank all of you that have continued to bring your quilts to me for quilting and for all of your patience with me in these past 8 months. I would also like to Thank all of my many new customers that showed so much patience and understanding.
I sincerely hope that you will all continue to send your quilts my way for quilting as it is truly what helps me to keep my sanity, I love the quilting and keeping busy helps get though each day. I do also try to make more time for doing fun family things, knowing just how important that really is, so if you call and get the answering machine please make sure you leave a message and I will call you back as soon as I am able. If you call and do not get the machine this just means that I am on the phone with an important call and can not answer at the moment so please call back or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Many people will ask how I am doing and/or how the Children are doing. Life has changed drastically for all of us but I think that we are all finding our new normal. In December we purchased a new house for the Children and their Mother that is in a nearby neighborhood and is only 4 Min's from me. Just far enough to give us each our privacy and close enough to see each other often. This process really helped us to get though the Holiday without Jason and would have been what he wanted for the children. The Kids are still in counseling and doing very well. They love to talk about Daddy and we all still feel that he is very much with us and a part of our lives every day. Jason's Father is also living with the Kids and Mother, some may find this odd but it rounds out the family unit and the Kids love having Grandpa around and I know that he loves being there for them every day. They are all working on a Garden and looking forward to having a crop of veges soon. So all in all we are getting through the process and doing pretty good taking one day at a time.
Back to the Blog. One of the things that I enjoy is sharing information on quilting that I come across from time to time so I hope that you will check back often and see what is happening and feel free to post and share some quilting techniques with us.
Thanks for Reading.
