Thank you Gene & Carol

I received 2 lovely cards with an angel and a rose motif  from both Gene and Carol with some very encouraging words that I am sure I will re-read many times.  Thank you so much they are very much appreciated as I gear up to start chemo again this Tuesday.
My M-i-L arrived on Wednesday evening after taking what should have been a 6 hour flight on Tuesday landing in TX right before the tornadoes and never reaching here until Wednesday was a long journey for her and I feel very fortunate that she is here safe and sound.    My son is doing our Easter holiday this year so he and his wife will be hostessing and I will get to sit back and enjoy.  So with my family and friends I am very blessed.  Have a wonderful Easter.

"thank you" to so many

I just wanted to say how much I  appreciate the cards and notes coming in the mail telling me that you are praying for me and keeping me in your thoughts.  I have them displayed in my living room and when I look at them they help to give me strength and pull me through this ordeal.  It has been 3 weeks since all this has happened and I have had only 1 chemo treatment but there have been a few bumps and ER visits that I have had to make and climb over and I cannot have imagined getting through them without knowing you are all  here praying for me.  Because of the cancer being in my stomach I cannot really sit at my puter very long because it is very uncomfortable but I still do manage to get here long enough to check my messages and send a note here and there.  My husband asked what I wanted for Mother's Day and I said I think I would like something like a "Kindle Fire" so I would be able to go to my blogs that I like to keep up with or my groups that I am in  and check my emails without having to sit up.  I miss not being able to be involved like I use too.
Well I didn't mean to actually go into all that I just wanted to say "thank you" to everyone who has been praying for me.  You all mean so very much to me!

I received an awesome gift today

I have received a very pretty gift in the mail today and it was from KathyS...  I wanted to post a pic of it and show you the lovely hat pins , pincushion and buttons that Kathy made.  I have never received such a lovely gift as this.  I have never even saw beautiful hat pins like this let alone have them in my possession.  It was so thoughtful and lovely that it brought tears to my I thank you from the bottom of my heart Kathy you  made me feel very special.

Just the 2 cutest grandbabies

These are my 2 grand babies that are just the cutest.  They are in for a treat as my M-I-L is coming to stay with us while I go thru Chemo and this will be the first time she sees her great grand-daughter, Phalynn.  Have a wonderful Thursday everyone....

Modern Mini Challenge

Michelle is having a small modern mini challenge where we make a 6.5 unfinished block and then it gets sent to a few other people they  add a 1" or 2" border on it and we do not get it back until October.  So I have been piddling with this block and have now decided to use it.  This will be going in the mail shortly.  Basically I just added more fabric and the block grew then I wanted to add like a final frame piece and more yellow so this is what it becomes.....  Have a great day all.
