In order to be able to finish the NI quilt blocks by the end of January I have to finish an average of 1,5 blocks a day.
Without spelling it out in capital letters - I am behind...... by 4 blocks now, but I will catch up - promise, promise :-)
January 4th is dear father in law's birthday - the first without him present. That feels strange for us all, and we are missing him a lot today.
His funeral will be Thursday upcoming week, plus moving of his body from the nursing facility to the ceremony place on Monday. A small sermon on Monday and The Sermon on Thursday.
My father in law liked my sewing a lot and today I have thought about him a lot while sewing.
He was very skilled with the embroidery needle himself - doing miniature cross stitches, embroidering National costumes shirts, both for sale and for his female grandchildren, a hobby he took up when he became a senior citizen.
I got the rest of his embroidery floss some months back and will use it in stitchery, with love.
To all that have left comforting comments to me and my family, both on the blog and by mail:
Thank You Ever So Much.
We are very touched by the outpouring of love and care from known and unknown friends.
