|Wedding Signature Quilt|
Since my daughter was here in person, I decided to make her finish the signature quilt for her wedding. I made the wedding quilt and the pizza quilt. We had rail fence blocks at the wedding for the guests to sign. It was nice to get that UFO off my list. Later this year my daughter-in-law will get to sew their blocks into a quilt. My daughter and her husband will celebrate their 15th Anniversary in October. My son and his wife will celebrate their 15th next June. The delay in the wedding signature quilts will be an upcoming blog post. Kinda like the Graduation Quilts story.
Along the memories theme of this post. I lost a former sister-in-law last week. Back in the day, when we were young and married to brothers, we were good friends. As happens when there is a divorce, we lost touch. We had tried to keep in touch, but it was tricky and awkward. The last time I saw her was 9 years ago at her son's wedding. We did not get a chance to chat more than a casual greeting. I have been very sad since I heard the news. She was a bright star in the world. Her death was tragic. Her sons and family are devastated. She took her own life. I am linking to my nephew's youtube video of his thoughts on losing his mother. He is a fast car guy and does videos about his passion. Wonderful young man with a lovely wife and two adorable daughters. It is hard to watch, but if anyone needs to know how suicide affects those left behind, a worthwhile watch. And if you need help, please call the new hotline. 988
I wish that Jessica had made that call. RIP dear friend.
