To let you know

Just a short post to let you know that my beautiful daughter, Megan lost her battle with cancer on Sunday. She was a wonderful human being and the best daughter anyone could ever wish for. Thank you for all your prayers and support over the last years as she has been fighting this horrible disease.
Hug all your family for me today....Love, Jo Ann

Alphabet Tags and Scattered Hearts

I have finally finished Alphabet Tags....Here it is on my garage floor....(notice it has bits of every paint we have ever used in our house:) I even have the first 2 patterns done. I have been burning the midnight oil trying to finish, because I am off to Megan's on Saturday and the Loft Open House is on the 14th....I get back late on the 13th.

Gene and I were just in Portland for the weekend....but Megan has her second treatment of this new regimen on Friday and I am going up to hang out with her and help out. It has been a difficult last few weeks. She is not feeling great and she has a lot of water retention so she is very uncomfortable....Hopefully the next go around won't be as bad.

I got an email from Primitive Quilts today with a preview of my project in their next issue. It is called "Scattered Hearts" and I tell you why in the article that goes along with it..... I am excited that my friend, Cheri Payne has her quilt on the cover too...(see my sidebar). If you sign up for a subscription they are giving away freebies...You will want to check it out (and tell them I sent you...:)))

I hope that all of you have had a good start to your year! Take care and I will try to write again soon.....My best to you all................Jo Ann
