It's been a while since my last post.
Life has been just a little crazy.
I will give you a little update on life in our family.
This summer we lost my Mother in law , had a lovely wedding and gained a son in law, had 2 family members diagnosed with cancer ( my hubby and sister in law) both have had surgery and are doing great. A bother in law needing surgery due to a blood platelet disorder called ITP ( a name as long as your arm) the brothers both had there surgery on Friday the 13th at 1 pm in October. And then my mom was placed into a nursing home as she is needing more care than what can be provided at home. we are very grateful that the 3 with surgery are all doing great and will be starting off 2018 healthy. Life is slowing down and we are counting our blessings in our family and friends,
I am grateful to have a passion ... my quilting ... to help me focus and find a clam place. It did take a while until I felt I could sew again and I did miss it. Sew glad to have friends and family around while I was in limbo.
I was able to get 4 more quilts done for Victoria Quilts Canada, made a few runners for Christmas gifts as well as making some stockings for Christmas 2 for our daughter and her hubby for their home and one for a baby gift. I even created a bed jacket for my mom for Christmas , a special request to keep her cozy.

I hope to plan out a few more classes to teach and make a few more Vic Quilts always something to do .
Right now we are having crazy cold temps -29c and a little breeze which makes it even colder.
It is quite at home now with the last of the kids on the way back to their home miss them. I enjoyed the games darts and just visiting with them all.
I hope you all had a nice Christmas with family and friends and have a safe and healthy New Year.
