I'm sorry for being away for sooooo long - but those of you who know me personally already know why I pulled the disappearing act. 

On Oct. 22, 2012 - Tragedy struck my family in a painful and devastating way in the death of my preemie, 3 month old Grand Daughter.  The situation has not only hit home for me but for her parents, and other family members.  I was to finally going meet this little miracle during Thanksgiving Week.  My Daughter thought it would be the best Birthday Present she could have given me, which was this past Friday.  Needless to say this has caused a great sense of lost on many levels. Unfortunately her death was only the beginning of a downward spiral that continues to send our families into what appears to be a never-ending battle. As often as is the case, there has more than enough of grief, drama and heartache to be to pass around.  

As you can image the holidays have taken a more somber turn. But I am working my way out of my hole and will sharing more quilt news with y'all. Like the fact that myself and another quilter friend have been hired to do a Wedding Quilt for our Client's Son for July of next year.  It will be a generous queen-size quilt with lots and lots hand quilting on my part.  But since we are still in the starting stages, I promise to keep you in up-dates and pictures as they become available. 

But now I'm off to try and do some quilting work.  So I leave you with promises of future pictures and more upbeat postings to come.
