Been away as usual for a while

Hi to my fellow followers! It has been months since I have updated my blog, but as always once a week every week I log onto here to see what my fellow stitchers are up to! Thank you so much for the kind words and emails concerning my absence. It seems most of the time anymore there are long gaps in between the next time I post and this time will be no different either. Been a long bumpy road since November. My father in law has been battling cancer for the last few years. It came back for the third time in November, although this time it is terminal. He has brain cancer. We have been spending a lot of time over at my inlaws house to help out my husband's parents and be there for them as much as possible. It has been a very difficult time for our house these months that have passed with watching Mike's dad losing his battle little by little each day. In between all the sadness my son James has been having a year of positives. June 7th he graduates from high school. He has decided to go to college locally for a few years before looking into going to college out of state. A few weeks ago he finally got his driver's license! So he has been not home a lot of the time because he is enjoying his freedom and also spending a lot of time at his grandparents house. I have been stitching, since January I have been doing a lot here and there. I usually take my stitching with me when I go to my inlaws to pass the time away at times. I am hoping to post an update soon of what they look like finished up to my liking. Be back soon and of course I always love to see what everyone has been up to!


  1. Welcome back dear..
    So happy to hear from you :)
    Love u x

  2. Hello Kay, i am so sorry to hear about your father-in-law. Stay strong.
    Congratulations to James on getting his driver's license.

  3. Oh, Kay, I'm so very sorry to hear about your father-in-law... I'm sure your presence and all the help from your family is giving him great peace of mind and comfort. It must be so hard to watch him fail each day.

    That is great that your son will be in college nearby! I'm sure he's looking forward to this next step in his life very much.

    Thank you so very much for your always kind comments on my blog--I truly appreciate them especially after reading how busy your life has been. Take care now, Kay...

  4. Aww Kay, it sounds like you’re having a rough time of things (((((hug)))))
    It’s not easy watching someone you love gradually slip away from you, especially when you know there’s nothing you can do to stop it, but I’m sure your father-in-law is comforted in the knowledge that he has his loved ones close by.
    I found stitching helped me cope with the stress when my dad was ill, so keep that needle moving hun and I look forward to seeing all the wonderful cross stitch real soon.
    Take care of yourself.


  5. Kay so sorry to hear about your FIL Will be watching for a stitching update.
