Home at last!

After travelling from Nova Scotia to the head office of Primitive Quilts & Projects magazine in West Virginia then on to Houston to be displayed in their booth at Fall Market and then back again to West Virginia, my "A Vintage Christmas" quilt arrived safely back home today...just in time to be able to enjoy and display for the Holidays.


I'd almost forgotten what it looks and feels like!


And...I just received the best Christmas present ever!

My doctor's office called about a half an hour ago with the results of the CT scan I had on Monday.  

"NO SIGNIFICANT CHANGE" were the sweetest words we could possibly hear.  That makes three years CANCER FREE...and counting! 

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers!  They really mattered!


Happy stitching!

Hi Karen,

Merry Xmas! I'm so glad your test results came back negative. What a wonderful Christmas present.

My god-mother lived for over 35 years with cancer--it was more like a chronic disease than a terminal one. She lived to be 84! So it seems like we are making progress in treating cancer.

Your quilts and designs are beautiful.

Warmly sent and meant,
Gail from NH
