I'm still here!!!

Hi everyone!...I hope you're having a wonderful summer so far....Even though the summer hasn't actually begun  yet...I was looking at the calender the other day and it said it begins June 21st...I think we've been having summer since April here in Georgia....

I've been away from my computer the past few weeks....We have been struggling with the news of my sister in laws brain cancer the past several months and we received word that she is terminal...She will begin treatments on Monday in Jacksonville, FL to prolong her life as long as they can...


In case my new followers don't know, I'm a cancer survivor...I was given 6 months to a year when I was first diagnosed...But I went on to have my son and i have been in remission for 9 yrs now....God has blessed me!!!

So, I needed time away to wrap my mind around all of this...Karen's cancer is rare and she wiIl lose her eyesight during treatments....

It has been a really tough year with the beginning of my 13 yr old nephew's death til now....Please remember our families in your prayers...

In the meantime, I have been busy x-stitching new samplers and pinkeeps at night while my 4 yr old plays games and after i get him into bed...new things I haven't offered before....I'm enjoying the summer so far stitching random samplers i have had for years....Some I've stitched for myself, but most I've never stitched...So, be checking my selling blog....I'm going to start adding new things tomorrow evening....

Have a wonderful evening~~hugs, Jen
