Hello everyone, it has been a whirlwind of emotions running in my head lately. You never know what life will throw at you at any point. One of my dearest friends was just diagnosed with cancer in the prime of life and it has had a real effect on me. I am just determined to be there for her every step of the way, because a journey like she is facing is not fun to take alone. I know that for a fact because my husband was diagnosed with Brain Cancer 2 years ago, and we went through hell and back with him. He is doing very well right now after 2 surgeries and stable MRI's since then, so we are just blessed for all we have been given and try to live life to the fullest every day. So the news of my friend threw me right back into Cancer-Caregiver-Mode. It is like I was just put on autopilot, making phonecalls, doing research, keeping her spirits up and trying to share my experiences and give advice through our own journey. Everything else is put on hold....your priorities change drastically when something like this happens. So please say some extra prayers for my dearest Glo, we need all the help we can get.
So.....sorry for the "no posts" lately, here are the pictures from my Iowa workshop I had promised. We were working on a strip pattern called Strip Search, which is a very fast and easy quilt, so we had lots of fun in class. The best part about the pattern is that you only need 1 jelly roll for a lap size quilt, so they all showed up with the strips ready and could start right away. It was so much fun to see all the different colors and fabric choices, they all looked great.
