I am a 40 something year old mother of 2. I have always been interested in crafts since my sister and I spent summer weeks with my Grandmother, who was a very crafty lady, while my mother was in college. I mostly quilt since I seem to have an obsession with owning large quantities of fabric, but at one point or another think I have tried almost every craft out there.

sad times

I have been having a hard time blogging lately and I really wish I didn't have a very good excuse. My Mom, who had a good checkup in January from her ovarian cancer, took a turn for the worse in Feburary. She started a second round of chemotherapy a couple of weeks ago, but has still been going steadily downhill. She is very weak and back in the hospital. We were so happy in January when it looked like things were going well and it has turned around so fast.

Don't worry about blogging. More important things are on your mind. Spend your time where it's needed.

Tami, I'm so sorry to read about your mother. Sending lots of hugs and hopes that she will once again be better. This is such an awful disease! I just wish there was as much research/money raising for this disease as there is for breast cancer.
