    I feel so bad for you, one major death in the family is hard enough, I cannot even imagine two so close together. Glad to see you back on the forum though and if any of us can help you or you are just feeling the need to vent please know we are all here for you. We will try to help you pick up the pieces of your life.

    I feel so sad for you, Tricia. We just never know what life is going to through at us. I'm glad that you did get some time with your sister before she left you. I agree! Your dad is much happier where he is now. As to your quilts, they are lovely. I love the granny square quilt and hope to make one in the future. Also the quilt with the stars is another favorite pattern of mine. You did an awesome job on all of them. I know you're grieving, Tricia. For that I'm very sorry. All I can say is better days are ahead. Welcome back to the Forum.

    I'm so sorry for your losses. Sometimes life gives us hard knocks. My husband of 48 years died suddenly in March 2015, then my mother died February this year. I'm still reeling from it all. Quilting is great therapy. Keep at it, your quilts are all beautiful!

    So sorry to hear about your sister and dad. I know that isn't what you were expecting when you returned to the States.

    Love your quilts and am glad you had these wonderful projects to keep you occupied. You did a terrific job on them.

    So very sorry for your losses. I have lost almost all my family, and I facilitate grief counseling courses, so I have a little understanding of what you are going through.
    Your quilts are beautiful. I hope they bring you peace as you work on them.

    So sorry for your losses. You've had some major life stress events - loss of family and major move. Quilting can be therapy - your quilts show that love and they are beautiful. I'm glad you touched base with us here. It's important you reach out to friends for your well-being. God Bless you!
    I am Sew Blessed!
