This was the worst Christmas of my whole entire life but it was far worse for my sister Jacquie. I was still ill but my poor elder sister, who was just 70 and healthy, died so unexpectedly of a stroke, it just wasn't true. She passed away last Thursday evening and and as we are Jewish the funeral was held on Sunday last. We, that's my two other sisters and me, just couldn't believe this had happened. In fact I still can't believe it. The only thing I hope and pray is that she is in the hereafter with her adored son Jonathon.
I love you Jacquie.
Until Next Time
Lots of Love Patricia xxx
P.S. I did NOT put this up for sympathy. I put this on here because I needed to for ME ...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to THE QUILTING GALLERYBlog Party celebrating The Quilting Gallery's 5th Birthday so come and join in and win something special for yourself.
I am giving away, courtesy of The Fat Quarter Shop, who has become my newest Sponsor!!! YAY!! Because I truly LOVE buying from them. No hoops tojump through because all you have to do to win this lovely fat quarter bundle is become one of my followers and leave me a comment telling me you have done so on this post.
|It's a full FAT QUARTER bundle of|
Merlot Kona Modern Quilts
My prize is available for anywhere in the world.
Please also visit The Fat Quarter Shop because they have just THE best selection of fabrics and their service is second to none.
I have been shopping there since I started collecting fabric. Yes I know I'm supposed to use it but, so far, I've just been collecting it. I stroke it and look at it a lot and I have found the service I get from The Fat Quarter Shop to be so efficient and I love calling up because they still know I'm American, though why I ever think my accent is in any way British is beyond me. Anyway they are always so nice and helpful and get my stuff out super quick. My favorite thing they have is the Block of the Month and so far I have signed up for
two um three :-)
The first one finished 6 months ago I'm intending on using that gorgeous fabric for The Farmers Wife Quilt but I have to cut some of it first. I've now got almost 6 months worth of their current BOM and still haven't cut into any of it.
So, if you are wondering why you hardly ever see any of my quilting or piecing on here, it's because I haven't really done any yet but I'm going to. Tomorrow I am going to cut into some of my stash and actually make something but I can't show you what until after December 15, 2012 but don't worry it's coming - that's what I keep on telling him upstairs, otherwise known as my DH who puts up with my stash buying like he puts up with my toy buying for our grandchildren. Please trust me when I say that The Fat Quarter Shop is worth visiting because it really is but take your credit card out first and get ready to use it!
Please make sure when leaving your comment that I can email you when you win so if your email isn't visable please leave it on your comment here on this blog.
This giveaway ends on December 15, 2012. The winner will be chosen by Mr. Randomizer himself (okay it might be a she but I like to think of him as big and handsome and sexy) and I will announce the winner soon afterwards because then I will be having another giveaway for my Blogaversary so keep watching afterwards for more stuff.
Well good luck and be sure and visit The Party because there is loads more to win from over 150 different bloggers from all over the world and you could win something great. Heck I'm going to go and enter some too.
Finally thank you Michele for all you have done in the last 5 years and good luck to you in the next 5 years and here is the link that takes the viewers back to her site!
See you soon
American by birth and MOUTH but British in every other way
P.S. I keep on forgetting to put stuff on here. So this is my very last addition to this post. This giveaway WILL be mailed internationally.
