Autumn House 4


Ah Spring break and I definitely need the mental break as do my dear co-workers.
We lost a fellow teacher who started at the school with us 4 years ago due to Lymphoma.
The second bout just knocked him out and losing a co-worker is exactly like losing a family member.
We are all drained and need the break to recuperate from the loss and re-new like the season.

Completed block #4 which was the easiest one to do.

I am truly sorry about your Co worker...you are right, they are like family, besides we probably spend more time with them than our own familes alot of times. Love the block.

Sorry about the loss of your fellow teacher and I hope the staff and students will stick together to move beyond the very sad feelings they will have when they return after break. Nice block you finished.

I am so sorry about your co-worker. I know I am with my co-workers more than my family and it is a devastating loss.

Your block is great! I like how you choose your own fabrics and not a kit.

Very nice colors in the autumn block.
Losing someone we are with all the time is difficult.
