See ya later Mother with Daddy

A week ago today at 5:45 a.m  CST at Hospice of Southern KY in Bowling Green, KY
My Mother literally went peacefully into her eternal sleep.
 It was so hard to see her suffer for so long.
 Your mild, meek, humble & caring heart and soul will be missed by many.
I will miss you Mother.
However, I am comforted by believing I will see you and Daddy again some day.

Frozen at Hospice

In our 7th week at Hospice.
Mother is an amazingly strong woman.
We arrived the end of September with summer type weather.
Have gone through beautiful autumn.
This morning, the temps went below freezing.
As I walked into the building, I noticed the beautiful fountain.

Quilt Block Tip: Sewing Bias Line of a Square

In the quilt I made from 7 man's shirts last year, one of the blocks was the snowball block.
Squares were sewn to each corner along the diagonal down the middle.
I didn't buy a fancy tool to guide me down that line.

I simply used my water soluble pin & a ruler and drew a line on the machine continued from the mid-line under the pressure foot.
Needle was dropped exactly in the corner of the square.
The other opposite end of the square was guided along the line.
It was easy to assembly line work the blocks.
The water soluble line only had to be redrawn once.
I have used tape before to mark the line, but have scratch my machine's surface while removing the gum left from the tape.  The water soluble pin worked just fine for me.

Wordless Wednesday #105~Month of Hospice

We brought Mother to this wonderful Hospice House a month ago today, Oct. 29, 2014.
She has been called the "Miracle Lady."
I call her the "Lady with 9 Lives."
This shot was taken early one morning after staying overnight with her.
I have FINALLY got my computer to get online through the network in the Hospice building so I can do some posting.
