Sorry my blogging friends but this post is not cross-stitch related. On Monday I went to work on my day off to cover a shift. I left work at 10:30 and decided to go to wal -martand get some stuff for the house.I had just started shopping and had to pee so I went.I then got a phone call from my baby sister. She told me my dad was passing away...good thing I was sitting cause the news floored me. I left the shopping cart outside the bathroom and left.30 min.laiter I was at the hospital with my mom and two of my sisters. At this time my dad was still aleart but in and out. I hugged his neck told him I loved him and started calling people for prayers and to notify my two boys of there grandpa's condition. Family gathered and we all prayed,cryied and prayed some more. Around 1or 2pm it was decided that dad was to be put on Hospis care. They started morphine at doses every hour to ease the pain.they quickly whent to doses every 30 minutes and then it was double doses every 15 minute. At around 11:30-11:45 my oldest sister got in from IND.and they give dad anouther dose;this dose put him into a deep sleep and at 4:20 am his heart stooped and he was pernonced dead. I do not wish this expereance on anyone. This is the hardest thing I have ever had to go though. I do not look forward to my mother passsing as i know it is gonna be worse cause she is the glue to our family.she was a rock over this last year of my fathers life. I know he is in a better place cause in my opinion this world SUCKS. I will miss you dad and look to see you again so hold me a spot in heaven
Dad chose to be cremated so there was no funeral just a family/friend gathering at mom's house and the will was read a few days after the gathering.
My Sisters descided that we needed to have charms made from Dad's ashes.Dad's wishes were to have his ashes spead out over his anscestors.
Saw this pattern done by someone Milly on Facebook and thought my oldest son would like it so I texted him a photo and he said he liked it. I then ordered the pattern from 123 stitch. This is one of the most expensive pattern i have ever bought. So here is the progress as of 3-08-2012
This is my new stand and it is working out great..bought at 123 stitch a few weeks ago. Progress on My Cat Tree as of 6-26-2012 This is Orange..Charles won him in one of them machines at Walmart. two tryes and he had it.

This was a frustrating stitch as it had lots of color changes but in the end it was worth it. A very nice lady on my group Shared Crosses sent me a wounderful birthday gift. Early enough so that I could shop for my birthday and hope it comes in on my birthday.(March 1st) The charts I picked are as follows. Thanks Carla. Heart Struck Quakers The Red Thread - Heart of Love
