Archive for March, 2008

I’ve heard from a few of you who have asked about my blog. Thanks so much for your interest and your kind prayers while my mom was ill and our subsequent loss in early March. Mom left us on March 10, when the door of her mansion in Heaven swung wide open and Jesus welcomed her home.
Mom’s last photo taken on dad’s birthday on Feb 24 08 (Pix added on April 8)

Of course, I’m selfish and wanted to keep her longer. But not to dwell, mom would say, “Pick yourself up by the bootstraps!” So that’s what I’m going to do! It’s time to SEW and try out the machine left to me, an Italian made antique that belonged to my grandma, Mommy Lollo. Yes, strange name for a grandma but if I’m ever a grandma, I want the little varmints to call me ‘Her Royal Highness’ as soon as they can pronounce their ‘R’s’. Anyway, I found the paperwork that came with the machine. Grandmother made payments on this machine while she made clothes for my cousins and me as well as dresses for her to wear to church. I can’t wait to run some thread through it and honor my mom and grandmother.

It is truly something to cherish and I’ll take pix once we get it home and set up. I have lots of new projects on the horizon, having received some beautiful charm squares from my dearest friend Ange and also some fabric for a skirt from my dad who sent me to the fabric store with a gift certificate!

Meanwhile, the pix below is of me and dad on Easter Sunday. Such a strong and handsome guy, don’t you think?

He is so precious and I am blessed with him in my life.
