For those of use who are the 'oldies' I've just gotten off the phone to TUBBY'S wife Diane.

Unfortunately Grahame died in August last year. Diane was just looking at the site yesterday and saw one of my Projects and commented on it. Caroline (asterixsew) saw it and private messaged me last night. I told her I'd ring Diane today.

I had a lovely chat with Di. She told me she looked after Grahame for the past 4 and a half years, he had a tricky heart and Emphysema. He was only 74!

Diane has retired but still does sewing with some friends etc. She used to work at a sewing shop up at Greenhills shopping village where she sold Brother sewing machines and all the sewing goodies that one buys for our craft.

Rest in peace dear friend, love Chris

It's always sad to know we have had to say good bye to one of the members of the Cute family.

Oh, I am so sorry. He was such fun here and so very talented! I am sure she misses him. I will add his family to my prayers.

Thanks rescuer, yes he was fun. I went to his place a couple of times and he was such a gentle, kind man. Love Chris

Thanks for the posting Chris. I remember the great designs that he used to digitise when I first joined Cute. Very sad and as you say 74 isn't old these days

That's true Caroline. I said that to Dianne the 70's these days are like being in your 50's! Love Chris
