Trying to get back to normal

Normal. What exactly does that mean? Our normal for the last ten years has not been normal for anyone but us. With Dad gone, the feel of each day is so different. I catch myself beginning to plan around "who is going to stay with Dad?" I know I'm not the only one that's doing that. Jim, Judy, the boys and April all have these thoughts, too, I'm sure. It will take time..

In the meantime, I actually worked in my sewing room today. I picked Kerrington up at their house and brought her home for the day. The following pictures show what I worked on. I still want to add a zipper to the top of the bag. I plan on using the technique I use on another bag pattern. I pray it works.

Judy is spending the night with us tonight since she has no power at her house. Kind of nice to have her in the same room while working on our farms. LOL

It's late and time to get to bed to get ready for another three busy days at work. Oh, hop on over to April and Rob's blog for more pictures.

Veronica~ Just letting you know you are all still in my prayers. I will tell you that it does get better with time. My father passed away in March of 2007 but still every day is very hard, but getting easier to get through. For Christmas of 2007 I had a small ornament made up through walmart with his picture on it and it hangs next to my garden window so I see it every day and it reminds me of all the wonderful times we had together and still keeps him close to my heart.
You don't need to post this just wanted you to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers every day.

I love the bag! It is very striking in black and white. If your zipper technique works, would you mind sharing it on line? I struggle with adding a zipper to many of the great bag patterns I have here. I don't like leaving a bag without a zipper--I think it makes it easier for pickpockets. Also, if my bag tips over, I run the risk of loosing something as it rolls out. Thanks.

I am glad you worked in your sewing room! I am sure the zipper will work!

So nice to have the whole family close by!

I just wanted to say hello and let you know you are all still in my thoughts. It takes alot of time and then things will be different but your Dad will always be in your thoughts. It's a good thing you have everyone close. Lean on each other and don't forget to talk about him alot to each other.

Veronica my friend, I've been out of the loop for so long that I'm only now catching up.
I am so sorry about your beloved Dad. the only words of comfort I can give is that he will no longer have any suffering. I know that he will be with you always and watch over you.

love and hugs Gina xxx
