Life goes on

It has been a long time since I updated my website. I usually take a summer break because I have so much other things to do during summer. This summer the break became extra long because sometimes things happens in life that you never can prepare for. My dear mother passed away in beginning of August. We knew that she soon wouldn’t be with us because of her illness, but we where completely unprepared that she would pass away so suddenly. Life goes on, but it is hard to get used to the fact that she is not with us anymore.

Because my father soon will move to a flat, we are fully occupied to clean out all the buildings on the family estate. We want to finish the clean out before snow comes because the property will be sold somewhere during next spring. It is so sad, the property has been in the family for over a hundred years.

Later on I will make a memorial page about my mother. There I will show most of all the paintings (more than 350) she made during her life and also some of the huge amount of embroideries she created. It will take a lot of time and work to prepare this because she was so productive. I have already taken photos of all her paintings, but I have to find time to put all this together.

I know you will understand that I will not do so many new cut files for a while!

  3. I am so sorry to read of the sudden passing of your mother. I hope your father is OK and settles into his new home OK. To have to lose your family home as well as a parent and with all the stress you are dealing with, I hope you are OK. Take some time to heal yourself and your family.

    • Thank you! I’m taking one to two days off from work each week. I wish I could be off more, but that is impossible. My father will not move until Christmas, so we don’t have to hurry too much, that is good.

  4. Very sorry to hear of your Mum’s passing and condolences to you and your Dad. It’s very upsetting to have to sell a property that has been in the family for so long, which is certainly adding to the stress.
    Take care, time will heal.
