Pardon me While I get a bit Sentimental from Terificreations's Weblog

It all starts about mid-May every year. Sweet, sweet memories of the beginnings of the preparation for our wedding. Figuring out what we could do. Finding a wedding dress in the City for under my budget. Finding wedding rings. And those oh so comfortable moments when one gets super frustrated because this is a big… Continue reading Pardon me While I get a bit Sentimental

Lost Connections from Celtic Thistle Stitches

 The start of a new month and it's time for another Endeavourers  reveal and the theme for this quarter is Memories. As ever the problem is pinning down a project for the theme from the multitude of ideas floating around in my head :)

 


 During my deliberations I kept coming back to Alzheimer's devastating effect on my Dad's memory in the last couple of years of his life. Lost Connections above is my attempt at representing some of the confusion and frustration that he, and we, felt as the disease took an ever stronger grip on him.

 


 I ...

Merry Christmas! from Where Art & Life Meet

When I was young, on December 24th we had a special Christmas eve dinner and then we would open our Christmas presents under the Christmas tree. If we were visiting my grandmother at her house in Colorado, we did the same. The only difference was that she had live candles on her tree and no… Continue reading Merry Christmas!

Diwali Memories from Sew Preeti Quilts

Diwali is the festival of lights - the biggest Hindu festival in India. In terms of fanfare, think of it as Hindu Christmas plus fireworks. Friends and neighbors exchange sweets (akin to cookie exchange), homes are cleaned (like Christmas) and decorated with lights and Rangoli patterns. There are sales on home goods and folks are bombarded with advertisements for jewelry and watches (for the special someone in your life). Everywhere you look there is a sale or a bumper sale. Streets are decorated with lights and shops/markets are dressed up in their glittering best.



When Bernie asked if I have ...

2 NOVEMBRE from appunti patch

 Il giorno dei morti che mi ricordo...

era un giorno importante a casa mia, mio papà ci ha lasciati quando io ero piccola e perciò quella giornata era come il compleanno di papà.
Tutti i fine settimana andavamo a cambiargli i fiori ma il 2 novembre era diverso e così è stato per tanti anni.
In quel periodo (1962) il 2novembre le scuole erano chiuse e perciò mi alzavo e coi miei fratelli e mia mamma, tutti vestiti bene e col cappotto perché in quei giorni qui in Brianza, mi ricordo che c’era sempre la nebbia, uscivamo per andare ...

May Day ~ Memories from From the Strawberry Patch...

Happy May Day! A new month, reason to celebrate; we made it through April! I had an "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie" moment this morning. When I spoke with my Dad on the phone today he told me that my grandparents' former home (I grew up living next door to my grandparents) is being remodeled and that a large addition is going on, as well as an in-ground swimming pool. He learned this from a

Quarantine quilt from Meena Schaldenbrand


Memories
The object of inspiration of this weekly challenge is the tennis shoe.
It is embroidered with cancer ribbons on my late husband's lab coat pocket that shattered our big dreams of the rest of our lives together.

We used to go for hour long walks daily for almost 4 decades to enjoy the fresh air, discuss the day's events and share laughs.
I miss him so much as I now walk alone.

The two combined weekly challenges that inspired this quilt is Textile Artistry week 2, Memories, and

Everything Old is New Again! from HummingBird Quilter

I decided to get a jump on New Year’s resolutions and began organizing my fabric stash. Since I haven’t done much garment sewing since I started quilting (nearly 20 years ago) I decided to start with the fabric normally used for that purpose ie. non-cotton fabrics. I came across a pattern         that I had cut out and embroidered when I found out that I would become a grandmother for the first time (More than 28 years ago!!).

My daughter had decided on a carousel theme for the nursery. I embroidered a carousal horse and when we learned that ...

UN SOGNO from appunti patch




I sogni a volte si avverano e durano a lungo, poi arriva il momento di chiuderli affinchè possano rimanere sempre belli nella nostra memoria.
Il Signore che ha realizzato un suo desiderio, non c’è più da tanti anni ma il suo ricordo è ancora presente nella memoria dei suoi cari e nella sua cittadina.
L’inizio della storia di questo sogno ve l’avevo già raccontata ed ora la ripropongo e poi vi racconterò anche il finale perchè dopo 110 anni la storia finisce o meglio gira la pagina e continuerà in un altro modo.

“Nel lontano 1909 una ...

virtual cookie exchange, day two . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

That's MEEEEEE!
I love hops . . . it's such an easy-peasey way to visit other bloggers and gain new ideas on a central theme.  Fresh perspective, if you will!  I especially enjoy participating in blog hops that Carol, over at Just Let Me Quilt organizes.   She does such a great job!  Thanks, Carol!

Our family has always baked our way through the holidays.  We love the tried and true, but we also love to experiment and try new, fun things.  I'm always looking for ways to include the grandgirls so that they grow up appreciating the baking traditions and ...

Playing Catch-Up from From the Strawberry Patch...

No, I haven't dropped off the planet.  We've been gone though; we traveled to New England to visit family the week before last and it seems as though I have been playing "catch-up" ever since. We happened to be gone during the time of the return to standard time; this was Hannes' reaction, he fell asleep while waiting at his dinner dish, at 3:30 PM! We had a good time being away, although the

The Pearl Anniversary from Coloradolady

Today my husband and I celebrate the Pearl Anniversary, or thirty years together. Someone said to me once that if they made it to thirty years with their
spouse it would be an accomplishment. I guess in some ways it is, but for me, it is more about sticking to a promise to tough it out in good times and bad.


Leading up to this day for the past week, I have thought about advice I'd give a couple just starting out. There are so many important things I could tell a young couple about all the good things ...
