Life Happens Part II

I have missed blogging about my cross=stitching and quilting projects. The past three years of my life have been a veritable crap storm of epic proportions. Shortly, after our brain tumor debacle with Dan, who is fully recovered and has moved on to yearly checkups at MDA, my mom was diagnosed with stage iv colon cancer. We went through several rounds of chemo for about a year, but she just could not tolerate the treatments. Last summer she had a couple of good days after I got done with school for the year and then went downhill rapidly and passed in July. I am looking forward to a relaxing, healthy summer vacation this year.

On a lighter note, the boy graduated high school this past weekend. It was quite exhausting with party prep, and all the other stuff that went on with that, but we are now on to another phase of our life--having a college student. He is going to the community college here next year and will be deciding in the next year exactly what he wants to major in. We are somewhere between pipeline integrity and some sort of fire safety program. We are certainly proud of him and ready for the next phase and adventure.

I have been doing a little stitching here there and yonder and some quilting. This summer I am looking forward to spending some time going from shop to shop, both cross-stitching and quilting!
