Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show Part One & a Goodbye

It is always a shock when someone leaves this world behind...even when you have seen the decline.  Another quilt angel was born as a quilter left this earth last weekend.  JoAnn was a quilting force.  I have been quilting with her for over 20 years.  Watching her make quilts for her family...including a precious great granddaughter.  She has watched my children grow up and since there were no grandparents locally she was one of my youngest sons Fairy Godmothers.  Passionate in all that she believed in...there was no swaying her.  At Hospice House I couldn't help but try and get a response out of her by telling her the Material Girls and Woolies loved her and now that she couldn't attend I thought there might be more Democrats than Republicans.  As I leaned in close to hear what she was saying...she said...I love you guys too and that was too bad about the Republicans.  

I will miss you JoAnn.


I didn't have the heart to start a Give Away today and so will post it tomorrow.  It is a spectacular one and so I hope you will check back manana.  For today enjoy part one of the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show.  I decided to break up the slide show into multiple segments so you would get a cramp sitting and viewing the quilts.  You can stop the slide show anytime you want to take a longer look.  See you tomorrow!
