    I want to apologize to anyone and everyone that I either owe or if I missed a swap I ssigned up for. This last month and a half has been a killer for me. I have not had time to think or to do anything I was suppose to do.

    Within two weeks I lost a aunt and a cousin to cancer. It was coming but you are never ready. Mom had a hard time as my aunt was her sister so I was needed there. Then within a week my mom had a stroke. She is fine and recovering beautifully but talk about tension. Especially after the funerals.

    We have since lost two dear friends. My fibro decided enough stress is enough and flared last week big time.

    I am getting back to sewing and friends but slowly. If I owe you anything please let me know. I will take care of it this week.
    If it was a swap my deepest apologies for making things go wrong for you.

    It is 64 here already and I feel a sewing spree coming on. lol Time to move forward and onward.

    Have a great sewing day everyone.

    ((((HUGS)))

    My sympathies!! I relate we had a year like that a few years ago. It is never easy even when you know it is coming!! :cry:

    They gave my dad 6 months he was 58 with an enlarged heart. He passed away 18 months later Dec of 1990
    He and i were extremely close!!! It was and still is really hard.
    I hope you have faith and that things will become easier. It takes time. I feel for your mom and will pray for all of you.
    Hopefully the hard times are behind you now! :D :D :D

    Linda, You have definately been put through the ringer over the last two months. Take some time for yourself and recoup. Don't mind about missing any swaps or anything like that. S*** happens and everyone here understands that.

    Sorry for your losses and I am glad that your mother is improving!

    What a terrible time you have had. I'm sure everyone understands if you missed anything. Just let it go and and take some time to let yourself heal emotionally.

    I am so sorry to hear about all that you have been through. It is wonderful that you had support during these tough times. Warm weather and some quilting may be just the perfect remedy to help you heal.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Life has a way of getting in our way.
    Reminds me of what my grandma always said
    "Want to make God Laugh? Tell him Your plans"
    Make sure you take time for you and help renew your inner strength.
    Glad your back and cant wait to see what the sewing bug has stired.

    Losing a loved one is never easy and even if you think you are ready for it you never are. So sad but keep your chin up and do things you enjoy to take your mind off the things that make you sad.
