Christmas Sparkler Helped Me Today

Wendy sent me a note this morning asking if I'd seen the Christmas Sparkler quilt pattern from Marcie offered as this year's gift to us bloggers. Yes, indeed I had and I also had the pages printed out. I'm proud to say that I've started it and have proof in the photo! Today I needed a diversion of sorts. My father hasn't been well for a very long time and his quality of life dimenishing daily. I'd been waiting to hear from my mom on the latest details; he went back into the hospital again yesterday. This pattern was just what I needed to work on today; it was easy so I was able to think about dad and times spent together. My wish, my prayer is for my father not to suffer anymore.

Mary, so sorry to hear about your father. May your sweet memories be a comfort while you need it. I am glad that this little project could keep your hands busy while your heart is busy elsewhere.

You will be in my thoughts *s*

Wendy said...

I'm glad this was a good distraction for you at this time.
My thoughts are with you.

Mary --

Your Dad would love knowing that you spent yesterday stitching and thinking of the great the great memories you've made with him throughout the years. I'll keep him -- and you -- in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Mary,
I am sorry about your father and know is hard to see someone you love in pain. I lost my dad four years ago and it's so hard, but I am glad I was there for him.
I adore your quilt!
Hugs: Zlaty
