Sad News

I am back from a wonderful visit to my Mother and my beautiful grandchildren. I thoroughly enjoyed it, even though it was a long trip there and back. Did no crafting but did manage to get some craft supplies which is just not available in our little town. My Sister arranged a kiddies party for my Mom (at 75!!!) complete with a fairy birthday cake, cream soda cold drinks, pop corn balls and lots of other kiddies eats. My Mom and her friends thought it was rather original. She was very happy with the card I made her and it is on display in her lounge.

Unfortunately we received the very sad news early Friday morning that my Mother-in-Law passed away during the night. She was 76 years old. She had emphysema and were in hospital for the last week. I will not be around for the next week as we are having a whole lot of family coming to stay with us before and after the funeral on Thursday.

I will be back as soon as possible.

Hope you will all have a week full of wonderful therapeutic crafting.

  11. Beste Amanda,

    Gecondoleerd met het verlies van je moeder, het is altijd zwaar om ouders te verliezen.
    Ik ben wel volger van je blog geworden en ik hoop dat je ook eens bij mij wilt kijken.

    Groeten Ann

  12. Dear Amanda,

    Am so sorry I have not visited your site since so many days.

    I was saddened to hear about your Ma-in-law. May God grant her peace. And may your family get all the strength they need to overcome this irrepairable loss.

    Take care of yourself,
