    Continuing to hold you, your family, and your dad up in prayer. I lost my dad in 2000, but my mom in 2018. It hasn’t been easy, but I can honestly say that having my sewing and sewing communities, including the Art of Home Club, have helped me get through this difficult year. Hugs and Prayers from Maryland!

    My condolences for the loss of your Dad…. My Mom had cancer & towards the end she asked my siblings to come to her, of course they did. The last few days, she stopped talking or responding, except when we would tell stories or watch videos, she would smile… Sometimes our loved ones just know when their time is near.

    Remember the good times, that will keep your Dad alive in your heart. (I remember my Mom asking me to make my nephew a Christmas tree quilt, and that quilt story has become part of our history – because I could hear my Mom saying “you’ve got to be fair – if you do it for one, you have to do it for all”! So, all 4 of hergrandkids are getting a Christmas tree quilt.

    Bless you & thank you for sharing your ceeativeness!

    Sincere condolences on the loss of your Dad. I started quilting when my sister was ill and I wanted to make her a memory quilt, six years ago. Since her passing, along with the loss of several other family members, my therapy and solace has come from quilting, sewing and creating, for others. May God grant you all peace at this difficult time.

    Jacquelynn, sorry to hear about your father’s passing. I am glad you had a chance to see him before he went and that he looked in good health. I lost my Dad , well it will be a year ago this March. He was 97 and not in very good shape. IT was a blessing, but I still have to remind myself that it is not just a phone call away. I went through a box of photographs yesterday, so full of memories. It helps to remember all the good times.

    Sorry but I hve been skimming through your posts as I have been ill & recovering from ongoing treatment for cancer. I am so sorry you have lost your beloved Dad but pleased you got to share in his last holiday with him. Those memories will be so special. Lost my Dad nearly 20 years ago. Hugs xxx

    Many years ago I made a thread catcher for my serger similar to your ironing board caddy. I used a piece of cardboard 5×8 and covered it with fabric. I put a small piece of velcro near the front top to hold a pin cushion and stitched two tabs to the underside of the front hanging down with velcro on them. I then made a small fabric bag, put velcro on the back and attached to the cardboard. It then slips under the feet of my serger to catch all the thread snippets. I think I will redo it (or make a new one) and add a slot for scissors!
