In Memory

I am cheating a little bit on this challenge. I will be using a previous post. I haven't participated to the Heart2Heart challenge in a while as things had taken a crazy turn in my life.

My father in law was diagnosed with lung cancer, then withing days we discovered that it was in the spine and hip then a few more days it was in the neck and brain... I suspect they quit looking after that. Within a month of the initial news we lost him. He was a farmer and we are still struggling a little keeping things afloat on the family farm, so scrapbook time is still hard to find.

But although I had absolutly no time to participate with the challenge; I did miss them. The previous post was a card I had made for my father in law while he was in the hospital. It is using the paper piecing technique. Which tends to be a technique i use again and again.


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your father-in-law, Melanie. I just prayed and will continue to pray for you and your family.

  2. Thank you Elizabeth, it is appreciated.

  3. Melanie I am sorry for your loss. I was lucky to have the chance to meet him last year when my siding on my house was done. He will be missed by many people. Wendy

  4. We missed you too, Melanie. I'm so sorry for your family's loss.


Comments are the little thing that makes my day just that more special.
