Bits and Pieces

I realize I haven't posted in a while, and thank you to those who kindly inquired about me!  I have been extremely busy with costumes for the past 3 weeks or so and it looks like I will be for the next couple of weeks.

The other news is that I have an immediate family member that will need two surgeries this winter and spring, which will leave me with helping out quite a bit to make sure things go smoothly.  I'm not sure how much time I will have to blog.

That said, I will try to post a few things here and there when I can!

Parting Shot:  Franconia Ridge.  This was taken last week before the day before the last snow storm, from across Franconia Notch on Cannon Mountain.  Even though we don't have a lot of snow at the lower elevations, there is plenty higher up on the mountains!

I hope you will find a little time to keep us all in touch and that the cosumes and subsequent projects go well. Every good wish to you and your relative who needs the surgery. I know only too well what that can involve for a whole family but I am sure you will all come through very well

I was just thinking about you earlier today and was going to send an email. I figured you were busy! I hope everyone is OK.

Sometimes life just happens and you have to go where priorities lead you. Hope all is well with your family member.

Beautiful photo of the mountains.

So glad to hear that you are fine. You were missed!!
When you have time, let us know what you are up to with your sewing plans. I will pray that all goes smoothly for your family member.
The mountains are awesome. I can see why you love to hike!

I hope everything goes smoothly, then, and I'm sure all your readers will be here waiting whenever you can get back to blogging. :)

Summerset,

I normally don't comment on all your lovely sewing but I pray everything goes well with your loved one. (and the costumes):) Make sure to take care of yourself, too.

Thanks for the update. I hope all goes well with the surgeries and recoveries and the care-giving.
Try to get some moments to relax and unwind. It can get hectic for the care-giver too!

Thanks for letting us know what is going on. I will miss your posts, but taking care of family is more important than blogging. i will be praying for you in this time.

Suzanne said...

I will miss hearing about your wonderful creations, but completely understand...I am in the same situation! Hope all goes well.

Been missing you and will praying regarding the surgeries. Hope you'll share photos of the costumes eventually, too! Take care!

Hope things are going well for you and your family member--that is tough. I was just browsing your blog for your tutorial on the prick stitch so I could send the link to a friend--you do such a good job with explanations. Realized that you had not posted in awhile and thought I'd say 'hi' and that your posts are missed :)

I'm missing your wonderful writing, and thinking of you as you take a break to deal with the health issues of your family. How fortunate for them that you can help them; and may you find it a blessing for yourself, also.

Haven't seen you post in a while, Summerset, hope everything is ok with you and your family.

Heather said...

Really missing your encouraging post. Hope you are enjoying your time with family. My mom is dealing with cancer and I never want to leave her side...all of your needs will be met with the help of God. Seek him and he will answer, praise him with good and bad he is there with you. May God bless you and your family.
