Jack's Shirt Memory Quilt
Recent widow struggling to maintain healthy eating habits. My two Cavalier's are 7 years old with a few health problems of their own, but we muddle through and try to get in a walk every day. My other companion is an 16 year old Cat that runs the household as only a cat can do. Prior to my husbands death, I enjoyed reading, gardening, playing Pinochle, traveling. I recently completed a quilt made out of my husbands shirts. It was my first attempt at quilting and although I cannot say I've been bitten by the quilting bug, I have decided to try my hand at it again. I've been keeping busy since being alone, scanning and organizing my parents black and white photos, as well as researching and documenting our family on Ancestry.com. My passion is helping with fundraising for Brain Tumor Research and Cure.
Eat healthier, loose weight, and increase exercise ability.

Hello, my name is Debbie. I usually post on the Senior Widows and Widowers team. That is where I came across your page. I recently lost my DH to leukemia .... March 27, 2009. Being on this team has been a help to me. Also, I have widow friends at work and at church that I fellowship with...that really helps alot.
I love what you did with your DH's shirts!! That is a great idea! Wish I had thought to do something like that. I gave all his away to friends and I never see any one wear them. I wish they would.....this quilt would have been a wonderful keep sake to cuddle in and remember him.
Come visit the team sometime....I would love to see you there. Take care....Debbie

Like you, I haven't had much luck on finding our fbd friends on here. I put in yours and some of the others in the search area, but it didn't find you or anyone. I must not know what I am doing either:) I stumbled on your comment on the founder's pg, after I set up my spark page today. I was thrilled to see someone I knew!
So sorry to hear about your broken foot....bummer:( I don't know what I would do if I couldn't exercise. You may have to settle for some fidget-cizers:) Where do you post on this site? Do you belong to a certain team? Talk to you soon. Janice

So happy to see you on here! I have missed interacting with you on the flatbelly boards:) Are you still on there too?
I finally created a spark page today. I haven't gotten as busy interacting on here yet, but I plan to. I hope I run into you on some sparkteams and boards. Good luck with your continued success! Janice
BTW, I love Jack's memory quilt! What a terrific idea!
