No TTMT Today…Remembering with Stained Glass

Stained Glass by Carol

Hey all, I want to leave a quick note for my friends and readers and let you know that there will be no Talk To Me Tuesday today.

We’ve had another death in the family and I just can’t face recording a video right now. You may remember, that we lost my grandmother almost three weeks ago.

My wonderful, amazing, kick ass mother-in-law, Carol, passed away yesterday and aside from telling you this, I’m pretty much speechless.

Instead of sharing stories or thoughts or a lot of words, I want to share some of her stained glass. It was one of the many things that she mastered and she was amazing at it. This is just a tiny sampling from my own photos. I hope you enjoy them.

This final photo is a quilt that I made based on the piece shown at the very top of this post, which hangs in my kitchen window.Before I started sharing my patterns online, I made a version of this for Carol. With her permission, I then shared the pattern with the world. It makes me happy to think there are more versions of this floating around out there.

    Lost both my parents within 3 weeks of one another a few years ago and I still feel it. I quilt to make the days go by and I am thankful to be using her machine to piece with. Her Scissors are awesome too. It will take time and yet we will never be over it. I still miss them and I can understand how you are feeling right now. Huggs my blogging friend. Prayers for peace to enter your soul real soon.
