I just have to share...

My great news!

Late Friday afternoon I heard from my doctor's office.  She was away but had her nurse assistant give me a call to say that even though the reports from the three CT scans were long and involved, they all showed that everything was fine.  Most importantly, the scan of the area where the cancer was found "showed no change".  

Those were the sweetest words I think I've ever heard.  

Both Mr. Painted Quilt and I breathed many sighs of relief and I felt like I'd been given a new lease on life...until the time for the next scan rolls around. I'll be finding that out after I meet with my oncologist on the 17th of this month.

When the words, "I told you so!" came out of Mr. PQ's mouth, all I could do was smile through the tears.  Under any other circumstance, I would have given him a good poke!  *wink*

Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers and encouragement during what has been an incredibly stressful month.  I know and feel in my heart that they all played a huge part in the results.  

GIANT hugs to all of you! 


Thank you as well for all the wonderful suggestions for the title of my new nautical quilt design.  I'm still working away at it and hope to have it completed by the end of this week and then I'll send it off to be quilted.

I've narrowed it down to the following titles so once again, I'm asking for your help with the final selection.  This time, not only will I give a copy of the pattern to the person(s) who suggested the name but I'll also do a random draw from all of you who picked the winning title.

Here is the short list...

Silent Sentinels
Safe Harbor
Harbor Lights
Candles in the Wind
Sentinels of the Sea
Guided by the Light
Briny Breezes
Seaside Sampler


Although it's dull and overcast here in paradise, the sun is shining in my heart.


  
A short while ago Ollie and I did a walk about in our gardens and we'd like to share them with you.

The rhubarb is huge already and after a bit more weeding, the tomato plants will go in tomorrow.








Have a wonderful week and don't forget to come back on Friday because this Friday, the 7th, will be the First Friday of the month and my FFF...or First Friday Freebie...is all done and ready to share with you all!

Happy stitching!

Bev said...

Told you so...and I'm too far away to "poke". I know it must be a huge relief and I'm so happy! I'm still struggling with the red work on your ROM. I had to throw the first block out. The second block is finished but I'm too embarrassed to show it. I'm working on block 3 (which is my block 2). I might show you that one. At any rate, this is going to take a while but I so appreciate the chance to learn embroidery! Again, SO HAPPY for you!

XOXO

Cheery wave from Bev

When I saw your rhubarb photo, just had to share this most incredible pie I made yesterday - http://www.italktofood.com/2012/06/blueberry-rhubarb-pie.html
I have made a LOT of pies over the years, but this was one of the best tasting ever - I used frozen blueberries.
Enjoy!

(of "Ahoy Nova Scotia!!)Just about to complete my 2nd stitchery from yesterday! Oh happy day!!!

I am a lighthouse,salt water, shore person so I love, love, love your new pattern. My choice for the name would be Briny Breezes. Doesn't that just flow out of your mouth nicely? And I can smell the salt water every time I say that name .... Briny Breezes. And it's such a cute name too!!! Whatever name you chose, the pattern will still be great!!

I think the name should be Seaside Sampler because it tells exactly what it is, and it is beautiful. I would make it for my beach house bedroom in Illinois.

Susan said...

I like "Seaside Sampler". Only one time in our married life have we lived in a coastal town and near the picturesque coast line of southern Australia, in Port Lincoln.
Loved the nautical sampler quilt you've made.
