Bee's Valentine Surprises...

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day and Bee's package is in the mail. In case it does not make it, she can anticipate what is coming her way from Mimi and Papa.

This flannel fabric was a gift from Taylor Bringard. I love love love it. It is perfect with the bees, flowers, and HEARTS! Soooooo Cute!
So I made PJ's ... or a light jacket for now with multi-color buttons. It has pockets that most PJ's don't have.
Next I made Bee a Bee Dress on a light pink turtle-neck.

She will need matching clips for her outfits. They are cut from the flannel and mounted on felt to make them stiff and hold up to wear.
I hope the package gets to her on time to wear her Valentine's Day surprises.

Honoring Quinton Bruce...

Today was a special day to remember and honor a very special man... Quinton Bruce.
I always knew him as Uncle Quint, but just called him Quint.
One month short of becoming 92, Quint went to be with Jesus and be reunited with his wife, Florence, and other family in heaven. I am sure he is a very happy man today!
Quint was a quiet man with a great sense of humor. His delivery was usually subtle, but always sharp and a thinker. His mechanical and artistic skills on cars was amazing.
I remember the time he replaced my car's back right door because I failed to close it when backing out of the garage. He fixed it like new and wouldn't take anything for his time or talent. He was just like that. Helping others and being kind and thoughtful. We will miss this wonderful man!

Well, here are pictures of friends and family that came to the church today to share in his memory. Enjoy and copy and print anything that you want to keep.

Blessings and sweet memories to all Quint's friends and family.
