Sad News: "Since the lovely are sleeping, go sleep thou with them" July 2, 2015 18:28

It is with much sadness that I report the recent passing of my mother-in-law Phoebe. For those of you who know me, she was the one who taught me how to quilt back in 2011 just after my father died. This is such a great loss for me. Phoebe was my mentor, my inspiration.  She died in her sleep on Monday 26 June, she was 84 years old. She was a great teacher and quilter. I am so grateful I had the opportunity to learn from her. I will miss her but she will live on in my heart through my work



"Since the lovely are sleeping, go sleep thou with them
Thus kindly I scatter thy leaves o'er the bed
Where thy mates of the garden lie scentless and dead

So soon may I follow when friendships decay
And from love's shining circle the gems drop away
When true hearts lie withered and fond ones are flown
Oh who would inhabit this bleak world alone?"
