In loving Memory of my top dad - 21 Jul 26 - 21 May 10

My gorgeous dad has sadly passed away last week and I will miss him dearly. This is he with my two beautiful daughters at Christmas time before he went downhill.


He has played an important part of my life, so have to include him on my blog.

He has always been interested in my love of craft and back in the days when I did decorative painting he was my woodworker and made any and everything for me.

Thanks for all your great friendship out their "bloggie stitching friends"for your great words of encouragement  and thoughts over the past few difficult months.
He will now rest in peace.

Grief doesn't just come after death, it can come up suddenly months later. I'm only a phone call or email away if you need to talk.
