Thank You

Thanks you all so much for your anniversary wishes for me and DH and for the kind comments you made about my little pillow ornament! I am very proud of it. DH and I had a wonderful time last night getting out on our own for some dinner and dessert.

I hesitate to put this is an entry, but I will go ahead and mention it. My father-in-law passed away yesterday evening as a result of deterioration due to early-onset Alzheimer's disease. We are grieving but were expecting this to happen weeks ago so it isn't any kind of a surprise. We know that he is finally at peace.

But, so as not to leave you with sad news, I am planning to make it to JoAnns today to look for pretty pins for my Monthly Finishing Challenge pinkeep.

Congratulations on becoming a Catholic next week. I'm a Catholic and sing in the church choir every Sunday. It's a nice place to be!!!

Happy Anniversary!
Your little pillows are adorable!

I'm so sorry to read about the loss or your FIL. You'll all be in my thoughts!m

Congrats also on becoming a Catholic. I made that very same journey almost 25 years ago. It's a huge responsiblity and a definite sense of accomplishment to not be kneeling when you should be sitting/standing! : )
