oh so glad the pathology was negative!

Have to laugh about D getting excited about the DaVinci robot...


Simple sewing...that is what I am doing lately - I had to monitor a 9.5 hour debugging session the other day...not much I could do other than suggest possible I stitched up a couple of what I call 'Boredom Blocks'... six squares of fabric and stuffed to make blocks - I gave a couple to my grand nephew in April...these two are probably going to Maisy.. I have a bag of random pieces of fabric near my desk...with a needle threader, a spool and a small pair of snips..

Its fun to read and lurk on this site and see what everyone is doing.  I see that Ami and Pirate busy with weddings. Always so much fun and we're always glad to get them over with.  Glad David's  lung  problem has been solved and no cancer which is the best.  Judy hang in there with your Mom, know it is a time we need to spend with our parents.  You too, Ellen, know visiting your dad can't be easy but more power to you.  I have been busy sewing donation quilts and today am cutting and pinning five tops that I've finished.

I have also had  a health issue and after receiving five radiation treatments on my right lung, I'm cancer free.  Because I've had the lower left lobe of my lung removed back in 2017, my cancer doctor is very much on top on any developments and have c scans every 4 to 5 months.  But after some tiredness (which Laura warned me about) and a cough, I'm feeling back to normal.

now that our summer is here and the temps are red hot, Emmie(dog) and I spend alot more time inside which means I'm doing a lot more sewing of donation quilts and using up as much as I can of my stash.  Since I have alot of 2.5 strips, doing race sewing with them and doing braids ( which I get a little carried away and make way too many for the quilt I'm thinking about. lol) But love making D9P and so you can see what my simple sewing is.  3 yard quilts are fun and quick to make and its fun to find different fabrics in my stash to use.

You all have a wonderful summer, keep sewing and RELAX.

Thanks Mel

Thanks Ellen.  I'm struggling with how often to go see Mom and my sister.  We have a lot going on here and this is where David and I chose to retire to.  I know Mom wouldn't expect me to be there all the time but when she says she "misses me terribly" I feel terrible.

Thanks Karen for your words on both David's outcome and the encouragement with Mom.

I'm sorry about your additional lung treatments but I'm so glad your cancer Dr keeps such a careful eye on you!  

Keep on sewing.  Sounds like you are getting lots done!!

Sorry to hear about your lung treatments. Glad they worked! Nice to "hear" from you!

Judy so glad to read that the pathology on David came back Benin.

Sounds like you have a lot going on and hopefully you will get a bit of time for yourself.

Karen so glad to read you are cancer free. Sounds like you are getting some sewing time in. Other than a dress to wear at my daughter's wedding I have done no sewing....well I did hem the maid of honor dress for other daughter.
