Don't ask God to make your life easier, ask Him to make you a stronger person.

Thanks to all . . . . .

for your kind comments about my brother.  They meant a lot.  I'm sorry if I didn't get to reply back to all the emails.

Brother #1 (SeabeeBoy) and I cleaned out Dave's room at the nursing home on Wednesday.  It was kind of sad to think his whole life was compacted to one 10' x 15' room there.  Many of the staff came up to us during the day saying how they would miss his sense of humor and winning smile.

The three amigos .... SeabeeBoy, FiberGuy and Dave

Thursday had me taking SeabeeBoy to the airport so he could fly back home and the rest of the day trying to figure out where to put the rest of Dave's stuff in my already overcrowded house.

I tell you all that to explain why I didn't participate in this past weekend's Christmas Quilt Along.  Sue's probably mad at me 'cause I didn't even put up the reminder.  I meant to Sue, really I did!

After the week I had, that left me with only Friday to get ready for a show which fortunately was Saturday only.  It was the annual meeting of the Quilters of South Carolina.  270 women came to hear Susan Cleveland speak to the group in Orangeburg.  A town that houses South Carolina State that is located 30 miles east of the state capital of Columbia.  We had a wonderful day and sales were brisk.

The next show is this weekend.  I'll post a little about it this week ........ and keep apologizing for not even mentioning the Quilt Along this past week!!

Blessings, Cathi

I am so sorry for your loss. Taking care of a loved one's belongings is a difficult task. The quilt show sounds like it was successful!

How nice that you and SeaBeeBoy could deal with things together. Not easy, I'm sure. Take care of yourself. God Bless.
