You all are just too much!
Over the last couple of days, I’ve received several emails enquiring about my whereabouts, welfare and absence. Thank you all for your concern, for keeping tabs on me and for making me accountable.
I have been experiencing some health issues and was not going to mention anything until I absolutely had to but I have had to undergo numerous tests, which will include a CT scan this coming Monday. We are hoping that what has been found is as a result of a condition that I was diagnosed with about 30 years ago which manifests itself in many different ways when it decides to rear it’s ugly head and take me out of remission for unknown reasons.
It would mean the world to me if you could please include me in your prayers.
Although I haven’t been doing too much in the studio, I did manage to complete a new design on paper for a quilt which I hope to work on over the summer. It is my intention at this time to release it either as another free BOM or as a FFF (First Friday Freebie) in September. Having said that and because I have a lot on my plate and mind at the moment, I will be taking a break from my FFF’s over the summer. Thank you for understanding.
Today I received just what the doctor ordered…a wonderful surprise in my mailbox from my friend and fellow blogger, Pat.
Our tastes are virtually identical and there’s never been a second thought as to whether we will like what we have made or bought for each other. Did you notice the funky padded mailing envelope?
It came wrapped and tied up with string….with a card, of course.
How perfect is that? A pillow/pincushion including three of my favorite stitching styles…wool-on-cotton, button hole stitch appliqué and of course, cross stitch…with my initials and year that it was made.
Thank you so much, Pat. Your gifts, friendship and kind words never fail to bring a smile to my face and ♥.
Mr. PQ and I have been working like beavers on the grounds and in the gardens around our home and when we call it a day, the only thing I have any energy left for is to shower and read before dozing off to sleep.
When I mentioned the books that I was reading in my last post, Laurie, in her comment, told me that if I liked those kinds of books then I must read…
The Seamstress by Sara Tuvel Bernstein. I called our local library right away and they ordered it in for me from another branch and I picked it up yesterday. Guess what I’ll be doing tonight? I’m sure that it will be another great read. Thanks for the heads up, Laurie.
And thank you all for caring.
