On Saturday most of Brit Bee were together to celebrate the life of our amazing friend Terri. Alternating between laughter and tears, we certainly ran the gamut. Terri would have loved it, her girls were a complete credit to her, and the love shown by her husband, friends and everyone she knew, was testament to our beautiful friend.
Only Terri could inspire a church filled with balloons and cookies and jokes about TeaPigs and The Sound of Music; who else could make the switched off disco lights flash as the service drew to a close?
Oh there were quilts too. We handed over the quilts we made for Terri's daughters, and the ones we had made for her grandchildren were on show. Some of us brought our Brit Bee quilts to display and Ceri's patchwork running outfit was there too. For the saddest of days, it was a perfect tribute.
There was also the grand handover of Brit Bee Medallions! They will have a post of their own later in the week. It was a bittersweet day.
Bravo Mary! I will email you shortly.
Thank you everyone who entered, I loved reading all your hopes for the future. I did promise to tell you my 5 years aspirations, and right now I am hoping to have all 3 children with their own house keys and continued good grades, the government to have just announced that it is so sorry for not giving the public sector a pay rise for 9 years, so we get a backdated pay award to apologise, and for my family (and everyone else!), to be happy, fit and healthy. Not a big ask, eh!?
