Diary Block Tuesday
Today's block is a little sad for me. My dad died 15 years ago today. I can't believe he has been gone that long. The colors are a little subtle ( like him) and autumnal because he loved Thanksgiving. I was only 40 when he died and he was 66. Now that I am 55 that sounds very young!
I kept most of my blocks up beat but felt I wanted to include him today.
To cheer myself up a bit I went to my LQS, the Quilt Block and bought some pretty fabrics.
Isn't this cool? I am not sure what to do with it but had to have it!
I also made a pit stop at Joanne's to buy these cute little charms. I am planning on making my granddaughter Maddy a charm bracelet for Christmas.
As we all get ready to celebrate Thanksgiving tell me what is your favorite dish or tradition. Ours is a hot and heavy game of charades with no real rules. You can't talk but the subject can be anything, which makes for a fun evening.
