My Brother Ted

My Brother Ted after mom and dad "opened the box" with him in it.

My Brother Ted

Well here goes. My Brother "Tedbear" as everyone calls him is no longer with us. My husband and I picked him up at the airport last Sunday to spend a week of Christmas with the family. We surprised my mom and dad on Monday by putting him in a big box. The whole family was there. It was the first time in years!!! My neice and her husband which very few of us have met came in also from California (Ted was from CA too). Ted spent the day with me while we got ready for dinner on Monday. It was wonderful!! And dinner was great. Tuesday he went out to eat with my parents, went back to my brothers, but then got a ride back to the bar.
Now my brother has fought for years by polar disease and manic depression disease. In order for him to cope it seemed he also was an alcoholic. Unfortunately around midnight on Tuesday he took his own life at my other brothers house. My father found him on Wed Dec 16. It has been very devistating to say the least.
Ted was so well loved and had more friends then anyone I have ever known. He loved to play softball and was a generous person. We all loved him so very much! I just can't believe he is gone. Rest in peace Tedbear.

My New Tablerunner

I love these fabrics that I made this out of, Wintergraphix II. I am going to make these for Christmas presents. I am working on a blue one now and will post it when I am done. I did machine quilting with a metallic thread and a decorative stitch. This is the first time I have quilted on the machine, actually the first time I have quilted anything! Anyway I hope my family will like them. I am going to use different fabrics from the collection for each one. If you are interested in the fabric check out my etsy site. The pattern is in the book.

Boy I had fun today picking out some new fabric. I am going to list some on my blog but I might just put some on flicker so I will keep you updated but for now here are a few.
The dogs are for the human society. They get .45 for every yard sold so if you love animals this is a great way to help. If you see something that you like and want to preorder let me know. I will get them all up on flicker soon.
