Thank you so much for all the kind wishes, cards, emails and text messages - they have certainly helped me in what feels like a very deep hole. Here's all the cards we've had; Dad would be amazed at how many, and they keep arriving, thank you.
Angie sent a beautiful flower card - I'd not seen one before, such a lovely idea.
and today I've had a beautiful bouquet from school.
I am really missing Dad and have been overwhelmed by everyone's kindness, thank you. Many of you didn't meet him so here's a couple of photos. I have put together a small album of photos to take to the wake and have had some postcards printed with 'Ron Mellor 1926 - 2012' on which I'm going to ask people to write happy/silly memories of Dad - we have quite a few ourselves. These will go in the album with the photos making a special memories book.

I have been very lost and confused but have still been stitching - it is such a great comfort. I have been working on Tina's piece for the Needlecraft Haven Round Robin - she has chosen Margaret Sherry's Calendar Cats. This piece was part of the 2011 RR and when it went round last time I stitched February.This time I'm stitching August; there's a story behind why but I'll share that when it's finished. It is certainly a design to concentrate on.
And finally here is my orts jar for April - it is filling up nicely.
Once again thank you all so much - God bless
