Yes, time flies when you are having fun! Except this past year has had more challenges than fun. I just didn’t feel like writing about it all. Yes, there were good times and great moments but somehow I let the difficult times and sad moments take over. The last thing I wanted was to sound like I was saying “oh, poor me”. Life just moves along so here I am back and determined to use this space, share my quilting and the grand adventures we will have. In a nutshell my brother Don (my only sibling), my “big brother” was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. He fought it like a trooper for more than a year, he was doing well but then the cancer came back and he died October 30. I still can’t believe he is gone. I have been nursing a very arthritic knee for the last 6 years or so, finally 2 years ago the orthopedic doctor put me on “the list” with a promise that I would get my new knee in 18 months to 2 years. Finally in November almost to the 2 year mark I had my surgery and I am now 7 weeks with my new knee! Physio is going well and I am finally having a decent night’s sleep!
That sort of brings me up to date! I am looking forward to getting back to some hand quilting and more hand piecing. Slowing down is good for the soul!
The year 2019 is a year of change for our family as our son and his family move south from Calgary to Grand Cayman Island! In a week they will be there! We are looking forward to a visit in the near future once they get settled. The organizing of this move has been a huge job and it all happened so fast.
