It seems like only yesterday as we sat busily quilting ( and talking ) that Shelagh mentioned she was going to put her house up for sale when her husband retired, so they could move nearer to their son Freddie. Although their house is really nice in a lovely area we didn’t expect it to be sold so quickly, so it came as a bit of a surprise when she announced she was leaving more or less immediately.

We Quilting ladies consider ourselves fortunate to have known such a nice, considerate, and funny lady in Shelagh so that makes it even harder to say goodbye.
Shelagh still has a lot of family ( who will really miss her, notably all the babies and children she’s made quilts for ) in the area so she will be visiting often. We just hope it’s on a Wednesday so she can come to the quilting class and do some catching up ( never mind the sewing !!! )

We have some lovely memories of Shelagh, from visiting various places such as Quilt shows and Exhibitions, and days out for coffees and chit-chat, so it is with these thoughts, we wish her and her family the very best of good health and happiness in the future.

Don’t forget where we live Shelagh
