A finish, A new start and Life


Posted by Picasa
I know it has been a while but life has changed pretty drastically for me in the last few months. In very early april my mom got diagnosed with Liver and Pancreatic Cancer. She went through 2 rounds of Chemo but on August 5th she lost her battle, almost exactly 2 weeks later my grandmother passed on as well. It's been a very long and hard road lately but I did manage to finish my Ink Circles - Cirque Des Cercles after a few years of off and on stitching. This last Friday I started my first ever is the freebie..Fly, Butterfly and so far I am absolutely loving it. The last picture is of my kitty Misty giving me the evil eye after being caught on the bookshelf..I hope to start posting a bit more regularly here as things start to settle down.

I can't imagine losing two people that close together and to lose your mom so quickly. How hard for you and your family. Love to see your finished cirque, I'm having Carrie's Thread dye me some special floss and I hope to start it sometime this year.
