It's Almost 2012

Our New Year will be starting out on a sad note.  My father-in-law passed away yesterday, and we will be attending his funeral on Monday.  He was 94 years old and the last of our parents to pass, so I can't help having the feeling that we are now officially the older generation.


I wish you good health, happiness, and lots of sewing in the New Year! 

  I have really enjoyed getting to know so many of you this past year.  Thanks to all of you for stopping by and reading my blog.

My prayers are with you, LuAnn. No matter how much a loved one's death was expected, if they were a good part of your life it is hard lose them.

Sorry for your loss LuAnn, especially at this time of the year. I still miss my Dad and he passed on in 1997. (Daughters and their Dads.)
I know what you mean about being the oldest generation. Awful huh?
I hope the rest of 2012 is good for you.
