I was absolutely devastated to hear of the awful accident and the loss of my friend Kathreen and her husband, at WhipUp. Good friends, we swapped posts from time to time and emailed frequently. Our daughters are friends across the ocean. Honestly I am so deeply sad and do not have words to say. Only that have I have to take a little break from the internet and all that it offers and I am spending the weekend pottering and planting.
My heart has been warmed by the love shared with crafty bloggers around the world, and how many friends we shared without even knowing it. Often our internet friends are our best friends. We may be separated by continents, we may be separated by oceans… but really we are only a keyboard away. I value my blogging friends so much, wherever they are. I think it is safe to say that Kathreen, is leaving a legacy of brave and adventurous ideas, and as a community we are going to miss her sorely.
The children are so on my heart, their year of adventure, traveling around Australia as a family has been cut short… in a horrible and devastating way and my prayers go out to them. A trust fund has been set up for her children, who are staying with their grandparents and if you would like to support them then the information is available here.
