Uggg.....

Hi everyone! I'm sorry I've been a bad blogging friend lately. I've been so sad since Lola died. I miss her so much. The house is super quiet. I keep seeing things that remind me of her. I guess I could write every day but everyone would quit following and visiting me because it would be such a downer. I've had a few bright spots though. My friend Annette came over last Thursday and we hung out and went to lunch. She petted the fabric for the shop while she was here. We've gotten a lot of new fabrics in so it's kept me busy which is a real blessing. You can see them at the Etsy shop.
 And I made a block for the Stash Bee for August. It's a group with "hives" of 12 quilters. Each month we make blocks requested by one of the members of our hive and send them to her. At the end of the year, we each have 11 blocks from the other members. This month we made Offset Log Cabin blocks in a bright color of our choosing and low volume fabrics. All the hive members put up tutorials so it's a  fun place to get free quilt patterns and see how they look made up in a variety of fabrics. They will be signing up for 2016 soon if you're interested! Thanks to all of you for putting up with me being so sad. Thanks for your support! It makes a tough time a lot easier! XO from Bev

I truly know what you are going through with Lola. I'm so sorry!! I still miss my little 'vacuum cleaner' bishon called Scamp, who loved to sit under the cutting board, waiting ....., except at Salsa making time - too spicy :)!!
Love your Bee Block!

Bev, Somehow I missed your post about Lola. I am so, so sorry for your loss. I can't imagine how much you must miss her. :-(
So sorry.
