Classes.....and a sad note

What's being created:

An adorable Gum Drop Pillow by a sweet teen, Alex....such a joy to teach! (girl and pillow!)

Beaded Crochet class from a few Saturdays back......another class scheduled in January - don't miss it!

There was a message on the store phone about a week ago......Elizabeth, Tom's daughter, called to tell me he had passed away.  Remember Tom?  He was my regular - we'd sit together weekly, and sew, and drink coffee or tea, talk about many of life's great mysteries (things like understanding people, managing stress, how we were going to make a million on our various sewing ideas).  I hadn't seen his obituary until now.....(that hat he's wearing in the picture? He made it!)

DAVIES -- Thomas "Tom" Davies, 59, a 10 year resident of Albuquerque, and native of Seattle, WA, passed away on Monday, November 8, 2010. Loved husband, father, brother, grandfather, uncle and friend. He will be remembered as an Army veteran, small business owner, office equipment repairman, teacher, abstract painter, avid gardener, mad scientist, leather-clad motorcyclist, coffee enthusiast, fashion icon, Hip Stitch member, life coach, cartoon aficionado, race-car driver, creative chef, animal lover, nontraditional problem solver, amateur pyrotechnician, irrepressible optimist, car collector, rockin' roller, king of Spring Beach, captain of 4th of July, Tompy and Daddy-o. A private memorial will be held for family and friends on Sunday, November 14 at 1:00 pm. Services will be held at Santa Fe National Cemetery on Monday, November 15 at 1:30pm.

You're greatly missed, my friend!
