Blessings to all.  As I start to write this post today my thoughts have been with the family of Becky Lockett who passed away on May 14th after battling cancer.  I met Becky and her sister Moni at quilt camp at Camp Tecumseh several years ago.  Becky always had a smile on her face and I enjoyed hearing her describe the quilting project she was working on at each camp she attended.  Becky was always trying a new technique and at last September's camp she gave classes on sun painting material.  Her enthusiasm was contagious as she described and showed everyone her method of sun painting material.  Becky was also learning how to machine quilt and she and I would talk about how to freehand quilt.  I felt a closeness to Becky and Moni because in one of our conversations we discovered that they had grown up in the same town my mother was from - Streator, Illinois.  I will miss that Becky will not be attending quilt camp at Camp Tecumseh but then I know she will be watching us from above and probably guiding us along the way.  My deepest  sympathies to all of Becky's family.
