Thanks so much

Thanks so much for all of your kind words. It has been a difficult few weeks. I am amazed at myself. I didn't expect to mourn the way I did. My brother's death was much more difficult than my mother's. Everything seemed so tedious. My brother was sick for less than 10 months. We barely got adjusted to his illness. I seem to have a better handle on things now.I am SOO SOOO glad I went to Ohio this summer. I will post on "Auntie Camp goes on the road "even though it is months late.

I have been sewing. My daughter has requested pot holders. Oooooo tough stuff! LOL! I decided to use my scraps, make blocks and then practice quilting before I layer and actually turn it into a pot holder. I'm having a good time. I need to take photos.

I've also been Facebooking. Man is that fun! It is such an easy way to keep up with family.
The photo is just one of the sunrise over the gulf. I took it this summer when we went to watch baby turtles be released back into the wild.

It's been a while, but there is a reason

Oh how does one post such a thing? I have been in Ohio for the past two weeks. My brother lost his battle with melanoma. He was diagnosed on Thanksgiving last year. It has been a steady deterioration over the past 3 months. I was here visiting in July. I am so glad I came while he was still conscious. He leaves behind a wife and 12 year old son. The funeral is tomorrow.

I will be back to posting and quilting soon but really have nothing right now. Craig had a difficult time over the past month and the texting and phone calls were so prolific that I haven't had the presence of mind to quilt. I have missed the first two weeks of school so I have quite a bit waiting for me once I get home.
