My dad, Melvin Linn, (2007) covered with the hand-stitched quilt
that we named "The Puzzle Quilt" because
we couldn't figure out how it was assembled.
During this past year, my mother's health has declined. There have been lots of trips home to Iowa. I had some health challenges, too. I did a lot of volunteering at my church, at the library. I needed to share my talents. Life just plain got busy. Sometimes, I didn't have time to blog but other times, I just didn't feel like blogging, too tired and my thoughts just couldn't come together very well. But my "blogging energy" has returned and I see more regular blog posts in my future. Just want to say thank you to everyone who has stopped by to read my blog these past years. Thanks for your kind comments ....... in six years of comments, I can only think of a couple of negative ones that I received. Thanks for checking in to see if I was posting, and if I went without posting for several days, many of you sent me messages of care and concern. I am greatly appreciative of every reader and every comment. Very, very appreciative!!! Some of you may remember that I used to do a lot of giveaways and that, too, sort of "fell by the wayside". I'm thinking that maybe there will be a giveaway on my blog very soon....just might happen around the 4th of July. Stay tuned. Have an awesome Monday!
