I am getting the fabric together to start a comfort quilt for a co-worker of Neo-Mans.
They had to say goodbye today to their sweet baby boy of nearly 1 year.
He was born early, had struggles this past year with his heart and lung defects,
and today the Angels came and took him to be with Jesus.
I can't help but cry.... My heart just aches for this young couple...
no words can ease their pain and the great loss they feel tonight.
I told Neo-Man I would make this quilt for them, blue and in the same pattern
as my comfort quilt for Seth- the shooting star pattern.
Just so sad. Say a prayer tonight for Zack's parents.
Another person in my prayers right now is a fellow quilter Marlene.
Deb at A Quilting Journey is gathering blocks for a quilt for Mar who is in the hospital, and not doing well.
These blocks are to be done in civil war fabrics, and these are my contributions to the cause.
I have these all packaged up and will get them mailed out on Tuesday.
Lastly, Neo-Man had to get his haircut by a new barber. His old one Bart, is taking off to care for his ailing wife. Her liver cancer has come back and her time is short...
It's hard to remember: it's a time of year for joy- but a great sadness has stolen their joy!
