This weekend was a long weekend off from quilting. My dear Aunt Jessie passed away a couple weeks ago and her memorial service was Saturday. My sister Jenny came to town. She was asked to speak at the service. She did a lovely job speaking about memories of our aunt. It was a lovely service. She was 97 but there is never enough time and it’s hard to lose someone you love so much.
My sister and I spent a lot of time thinking about family and reflecting on a very different time in our lives and how much the world has changed. I got to see some Aunts, Uncles and cousins that I haven’t seen in years. Our lives seem to be so busy we never see each other and time flies by so quickly now. I think all of the cousins agreed that we need to start having family reunions again. Since our parents have passed away there is a disconnect. It’s really up to us now to try to keep the family together and communication open.
On the quilting front, with all that’s been going on I have really not been quilting. One of my machines has started acting up and I’m in process of resolving the issue.I really have worked but mainly on problem solving. It may take some time to resolve it. In the meanwhile, I have my second machine running and am finishing Penny’s last quilt. Next up will be one of Theresa’s quilts.
It’s supposed to be a lovely day, 70 degree’s outside. Enjoy the sunshine!
