a pillow for Ann



birthday time b


I’ve sat down to write this post six or seven times but then I start looking at pictures and reading about Japan and run out of time for posting. The images are just amazing to me of what they are trying to deal with there, quite overwhelming. Like many people I know I am lifting those in the midst of this disaster, and their loved ones in prayer.

Here is the pillow I recently finished and sent to my sister for her birthday. This birthday marked the one month anniversary of her oldest child Justin passing away. He was 21. I know that praying for those we love is the best support we can give at times. I will ask if you think of it, that you add your prayers to mine for my sister and her family. I’ve included a favorite old picture I have of Justin with Amber, Tyler, and his baby sister Samantha who is yelling her head off in Amber’s arms. Justin is the dapper boy in the in tie, Tyler is the baby boy wondering what is wrong with that screaming baby.

We are about 20 days away from our move. Tons of things yet to be accomplished. I’ve added a few things to the webshop that I never found time to list in the past including some beautiful fat quarter bundles that I’ve decided to part with. I’ve listed the closing details for the webshop there as well as I will not be able to ship orders for a short while during the move. I’ll keep blogging during that time but it will take some time to get things back to working order at the webshop.
