We attended Cheryl’s funeral yesterday held at her church in a small town near Garner. When we entered the church Cheryl’s casket was draped with a wool quilt she had lovingly made and added Barkema Est. 1963. At the front of the church Country Threads Noah Quilt was hanging in a place of honor since Cheryl presented it to the congregation many years ago. Another quilt, Jan Patek’s Pimitive Primer was laid over the railing. The minister made many references to quilts and quilters during the service and Cheryl’s youngest daughter, Kari, spoke from her heart about a mother’s love. Downstairs Jan’s Bible Quilt and Country Threads Church were on display. Such a moving day for all of us.
Someone asks what I have to do to the kennels when the dogs leave – not much because they live in the house 90% of the time. I’m a failure at running a boarding kennel. I feel sorry for them and bring them all in the house. What was I thinking when I thought I could leave them out there?
Amy says I have my own talk show here – she might be right. I talk about whatever I choose and you guys listen and comment. Ha! Church service tonite.
