Dear friends,

I'm so embarrassed and confused, as I cannot show you any progress on my little baskets project...

Actually, we've been living some stressful events, lately, with first my mother-in-law who passed away last September - she was like a mother to me - and then our beloved eldest daughter (35 years old) who had a stroke and 2 pulmonar embolis... This was like thunder in a blue sky to us - she's so very young ...  Of course, she needs our help in daily organization (our grandson is 7 years old), so that she can rest as much as possible.
She's now slowly recovering - not so easy for such a hyper-active young lady, to accept the slowing down - and we're praying that the worse is behind us...

I've been handpiecing some new baskets in-between my spare times,( but nothing consistent as to report any picture), as well as finishing a small Xmas panel that I had promised to our grandson.

I 'm now focusing on the New-year to come, hoping that some real quilt progress will be done, and also that you will excuse me for my "absence" on this beautiful Blog.  Please know that I'm still with you all, and that I'm admiring your works - as always ;>)

Thanks for your kind understanding, see you soon !

Heartful thoughts from my little corner,
NADINE

  7. I'm so sorry for your loss, Nadine, and am hoping your daughter recovers steadily. Life has a way of changing our plans at a moment's notice. Don't think about anything but taking care of your loved ones, and spending as much time with them as possible; and don't forget to be good to yourself, too.

  8. If we are old enough to be working on a jubilee quilt,we know that life's curves help us prioritize. The quilt will come. Sounds like it is time to take care and heal. I'll say a prayer for you tonight.And another for your daughter and her family. Take care of yourself too. Hugs and prayers,Nadine.
