A Quick Update

A huge thank you to all of you, my dear friends, for your support, prayers and kind words.  It means so much to me.

Unfortunately things are pretty grim at the moment.  Tests show my daughter in law has sustained very serious long term effects this time and is not expected to fully recover. She was moved from intensive care yesterday and is still undergoing further tests.  I'm currently living at Sam's place to look after the boys. 

To make things even worse my darling little Matilda is very ill and may have to be put to sleep.  This will break my heart.

Bad news.

I won't be blogging for a while as my daughter in law had another stroke in the early hours of this morning and is critically ill in Intensive Care.  My lovely Sam is distraught and I am so concerned for their children, Henry and Wil.  Life can be so hard.

An afternoon with Christine

Christine has been away on holidays and I've been doing Grandma duties so we haven't sat and stitched together in ages, but we did yesterday and it was wonderful to catch up.

Bee Tee Designs is the most wonderful place to visit.
Cyndi is amazing and shares so much with us.  Just follow the page tab to Free Patterns and you will find a myriad of wonderful freebies including these charming framed hexies. Huge thanks to Cyndi.
Have lots fun of stitching

A Tuesday link

and it is to a great project.
I am a huge fan of Geta from Geta's Quilting Studio.  I'm currently working on a quilt pattern I bought from her late last year.  We are all really lucky as she shares an enormous amount of her talent and designs with us for free.  Love this design and the brilliant tutorial.
Here is the LINK.  Enormous thanks to Geta
Have a wonderful day

A Monday link

Another day, another generous blogger who shares her fabulous projects with us.  I just can't resist these adorable Pretty Little Trivets and Hot Pads.
I found them at Charming Chatter.  Many many thanks to Kelly for both the designs and the brilliant tutorial HERE.
Happy sewing
Sorry this is so late to appear.  I'd scheduled it to post at 6.30am but forgot to hit that Publish button. No wonder I define myself as a scatterbrain.

A super link

Our lovely little Henry has been staying with us and will be staying next week too.  It's so much fun to spend time with Henry that I'm not getting much sewing done, so just a link for the next few days.
Kaaren at The Painted Quilt is an inspiration to her many followers and I'm one.  Four times a year she shares a wonderful free design and this is the one she shared at the end of March.  You can find the link HERE on her March 7th post.
It's called The Wool Crazy Spring Pin Cushion.  Many many thanks to Kaaren.
Hope you are enjoying a wonderful Sunday

A parcel from E Bunny

came hop hop hopping into my letter box.  

No return address, no clues, not even Ms Bunny's first name.  Thank you so much, secret friend - you made my day.

I am completely, totally and truly in love with these adorable polar bears.
Enormous thanks to Janet Clare for sharing the pattern with us.  Please follow this LINK.
Hope you have a great Saturday
