~Well Hello, it seems like Forever~

 A really big HUG and Thank You to each and everyone of you who left Gary and I  a note asking where we've been. September, October and November just flew by for our family, my Dad became very ill and was admitted  to intensive care and suffered a Gandmall Sezier and a blood vessel burst in his brain...Thank God and to all the prayers, Dad is doing Great and there has been no paralysis.

Also a family trip to Hawaii was taken for a week (I will share pictures and a story or two with you in a later post)

There was a baby shower for my niece, four birthdays, our two daughters moved that we helped with, some remolding of the house (I will share later with you in a post) and Gary "Retired". 
So there you have the last two months in two short paragraphs...Whew I'm tired!

I finished two quilts one for Dad and one for Mom. Dad's is called "Plaid Dad" I found the pattern in "Quilt Magazine" the Oct/Nov 2011 issue. It was more work then I thought, but I really like it..and Dad did too! My Dad is a hunter so I wanted a hunting theme quilted on top. I started googling  quilt designers and  found the hunting pattern you see on the quilt. It was the perfect pattern for my Dad.

 For the back I used a green and white plaid flannel, nice and warm.

 For Mom's quilt I used her favorite color blue. For the quilts inspiration, I used from "Quilter's World Magazine" August 2011 issue the pattern "Scarlet Delight".

And of course I had to make pillow cases...I also made some for Dad but forgot to take a picture of them before I gave them to him...Oh well .. Ho Hum, silly old me..

Thank you again for your kindness in asking how we've  been, you know who you are..and I love you!
I will be visiting just as soon as possible. Know I have been thinking of you all and keeping you close in my heart. You are all very dear to me and I have missed you so much.

Our family has so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving Day! We were truly blessed with Dad's recovery..
