Catching up

Last August.....Really???
Life has happened. Here's a little summary.

After the death of my mother-in-law last July, life really changed. We spent more time with the father-in-law keeping him company and making sure he was well taken care of.

In September, my niece (still husbands side of the family) was admitted to the hospital and diagnosed with Acute Leukemia. She was in the hospital on strict isolation for around 5 weeks. After strong chemo and a scary round of pneumonia, she was released from the hospital and is doing great.

My brother, living in Ohio, lost his job due to company cut backs. After a couple of months looking for work, he got an interview in Montana. Got the job and moved across country in December. He is now in Butte, MT. I'm looking forward to that trip to visit and see the country. I will wait for the weather to get a little warmer.

January found us taking the kids to Walt Disney World for the first time. I highly recommend the Wilderness Lodge. AWESOME is the only word to describe this resort hotel. Yep, we are ready to go back.

February, snow, snow and more snow. So, sew, sew, sew. Here are some pics of what I've been working on.

Happy Quilting....


  1. Just found your blog. I am so sorry for all the things in your life that have caused pain. I really hope that you are doing and your family.
    I lost my father in December of 2009 and it has been hard to get back into the swing of anything:/
    So glad you were able to take a trip with the kids.
    May God bless you this year!

    And your quilts are lovely!

  2. Wow you've been busy with both the good and the bad. Hopefully everything will settle down for a while and you can keep on sewing!
