Still fun to be had for those Christmas lovers ;)

Wow ladies it looks like we only 5 five slots left to fill in our Block Swap. I need your help in finding those last few swappers to complete the lists. If you have friends that might be interested... Invite them to look at the rules and see if they would like to join in on the fun of this exciting swap. I know there isn't a lot of themes left to choose from.. but I know.... you wonderful creative women always come up with wonderful fun ideas.. so lets get these last few slots filled and maybe a couple of people on stand by just in case someone doesn't complete their swap. Because I know life's events do get in the way of our good intentions. Thanks girls for spreading the word... 
Yes APP is begging for your help to fill these slots.
I am trying to get them filled just in case I have to fly back out to CA.
So its up to the sewing-room for me today :)
Santas little elves are always busy this time of the year ;) 
Sew Sew Sew .. off to work I go :)

I was not going to blog about this but several of you know about my elderly family members, and have asked how everyone is doing. Grandma Peachy is doing better each day since she was in the hospital in Oct. Aunt Laughter is kicking along as usual..walking a lot better after physical therapy.  But its Mom.. :O( she has to go into surgery on the 19th of Nov. They are going to be removing 1/5th of her remaining lung. I am very worried about her.. she did not say...  but having to remove some of her lung makes me think the dreaded CANCER is back.
That is the reason I might have to fly out to Ca in the near future.

Let's pray it's not, but if she has had cancer before I can see why you worry.
As for the swap, I've been trying to recruit people, but I'm just not getting any takers. Maybe I'll hit my mom up. She shies away from sewing, but if I were to help her, especially with the embellished blocks, I think she might do it.

Deepest prayers for your mom, and long, deep (((hugs))) for you.

I hope it is not cancer...you and your mom will be in my prayers.

I want to joing but I do not have any amazing Christmas fabrics....and I live on an island....hard to get. I have some but I don't think it is enough....and well...I did notice that you pushed back the date...that was good for me.

By the way, I am giving away a Ginger jar quilt on my blog, come over if you have time.

my prayers are with you and your family, and if (G-d forbid) it is cancer, remember this:

What Cancer Cannot Do:

It cannot cripple love,
It cannot shatter hope,
It cannot corrode faith,
It cannot kill friendship, and
It cannot destroy peace.

{{healing vibes}} coming your way
