The journey begins.....
I have been missing in action for many reasons for the last few weeks, one of them being that the internet and I are no longer friends! Hopefully soon I will work out how to fix this and it will be just a distant memory.
There is a more important reason though that I have been missing. I generally 'tell it like it is' on my blog. There are some things that are sacred if they have the chance of hurting those I love or may embarrass the kids but as this is a record of my life and that of my family I tell most things here. I have made some amazing friendships online and am even luckier to have met some of you 'in real life' and I will be asking all of you friends for your thoughts and prayers.
My 'Super Husband' has in the last week been diagnosed with a lymphoma cancer. We have already made many trips to a city around 3 hours away for diagnosis and tests and will be on the road again early tomorrow morning as we have a bone marrow biopsy scheduled. We will be back again on Thursday when after a Pet scan and a doctors appointment he will be admitted and his chemo treatment will begin. The cancer is aggressive but is treatable. It will just be a rough road ahead. We are all okay, taking each day as it comes. My Mum is coming to stay while we are away this week so the 'kids' are not alone. We are so lucky to have this option.
And of course what do quilters do in times of stress???? start a new project of course! I have had a BOM of Leannes House including fabric and cottons for many years sitting in the cupboard. I have decided that this is the perfect time to start it!!! The first block is all prepared and already the stitching is well on the way. I have named it 'The Journey Quilt'!!! and look forward to seeing it grow as it keeps my hands busy.
