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 all done and ready to share with you all!

Happy stitching!
