It's been awhile--a broken heart--a thank you and hope!

Hello everyone......It's been a while. I haven't posted since Jan. father died on Jan. 26th. His death was unexpected and still so very hard for me to wrap my mind around. I have been in my own daze and still find it ....what's the right word here....find it so hard to believe that life is continuing without the worlds greatest man.

I find comfort in my thread and needle, like so many of you. I wanted to say THANK YOU to all of you bloggers for keeping me company until the wee hours of the night . Reading your blogs my mind escapes and my body can relax. You are this lonely girls unsung hero on so many levels.

For some reason it's easier to take an Instagram photo then to sit down and type what I'm thinking. Deep breath and focus.

Little stitches--gardening-canning and trips to the orchards just some of the ways I've spent my days this summer.

Looking forward to getting back to blogging . Until next time live today to the fullest.
