Pineapple Star SOLD

I had never paper pieced before and had the opportunity to be taught by a friend of mine. She took the time to teach about six of us and we had a great time. It was a truly a learning experience and one I realized I was not able to repeat. I hated throwing so much fabric away that was to small to be used else where. I loved the quilt though and so did another friend of mine who then bought it from me.
I am so glad to have been able to learn this technique even so.

The quilting was done by my sister, Donna Heppler.

Amy's Creativeside is having another quilt festival.

There have been many years that have come and gone, and still sometimes it feels just like yesterday.
He was here and then not, and yet his face is so clear to me. I can still smell him and hear him telling me he loves me. Time never stops and we can not ever get it back once it ticks by, but what remains  is the images   that we hold on to. Today marks another year and yet the pain is so close to my heart of him being taken like a victim from this place we call earth. I say that cause it is only a holding cell before we go home. Home to be with the Lord and those whom He has already called, home.
Daddy, I miss you and always will.
Here is a photo that was taken by my sister, called, "Daddy's Sunrise".

This is always a very hard month for me to get through and out of 33 years I think I have made it through one with out noticing it. I have been pretty busy this month as well, but it has not escaped me.
I need to stay busy so as not to get caught up in the down side of this time of year.
So today I made an apron that I would like to sell, but I need to get it on our Etsy site for that to happen and I need my daughter to do that. That is her job.I don't celebrate halloween but we seen this fabric and just had to purchase it for this purpose. And it gave me something to do besides chores.
I hope you like it and it will sell before it is to late.
