Weekly Callenge #337

Greetings Fellow Tanglers!

I am back after a rocky late summer and early fall. My Hubby who many of you know has been dealing with frontal temporal dementia for the past few years, I am saddened to say, passed away in late July. This summer and fall for me was so bitter sweet. I will miss him always and cherish the time that we had together on this earth. I did tangle here and there to keep my sanity, but never seemed to get the time or the energy to post them. Now that I am back teaching and have the classroom up and running I was determined to get my tile up this week for the diva challenge. Hopefully I will be around more often.

Happy Birthday to you Artoo!

Thanks for stopping by, and for all of your lovely comments!
They do make my day!
Have a great week and Tangle on!

  2. So sorry to hear of your great loss. You will need a lot of time to recover and I hope you will take all the time you need. I do hope this tangling (and how beautiful it is!) will help you a bit. I also hope to 'see' you here more the coming month. You are in my thoughts, Kate!!! Hugs from me.
