Arina Dorschner Beauregard - 1918-2008
Many thanks to all that left comments regarding my Mom and to those that offered their prayers and thoughts.
Mom celebrated her 90th birthday in hospital and was gone 5 days later. She just lost the will to live and she was so tired of being sick. We buried her on Monday this week. It is a sad time for us and we will miss her a lot.
Of all the photos we have, this one is my favourite. Mom was just 2 yrs. old when this photo was snapped. Love her outfit and the baby chicks.
I'll be staying in North Bay for a few more weeks to help my sister settle her affairs.
Once home, my first priority will be to give my DH a lot of loving and TLC. He has been so patient and understanding regarding my absence from home over the past few years. It was our desire to not have Mom in a nursing home and she needed help to get around especially the past few months of her life.
After that, there are a couple of quilting projects that need to be completed. First, there is a bag that needs to be made (it is currently half assembled) and sent to Judith. It is part of a swap between us. Judith sent me a parcel and it is waiting for me at home (will reveal that gift soon).
Then, it will be time to complete my quilt for the Four Seasons Spring Swap and then to arrange a giveaway to celebrate my 1st year of blogging. Feb. 22 was my anniversary date; but life got in the way and that had to be put aside until later.
So, until I return home, there will be no more posts until Apr. 7 thereabouts.
Take care and have fun quilting!
