Glad to hear Jovie is feeling better and will soon be home.
Just got back from PA. Last night. Off to my sewing room to get my Sept challenge finished.
Has anyone heard from Jody?
And was there a Aug. Challenge I missed? I know mine is due by Sept. End.

Sharon, so glad you can find a little space.  I'm sure it is overwhelming.  I have a friend/neighbour in the same predicament and she has brought up her 2 sons within the mess too.  She also fosters greyhounds - I'm thinking they didn't do a home safety inspection.  The only spare space on the floor is curled up dog sized!!

QD, Sorry to hear a bout your mother.  This seems to be the time in all our lives for parent dillemas, ill heath, falls etc.  Happy your husband will be going with you and sharing the driving. 

We heard Jovie was better last evening and should be home today.  Today the test results will be in to confirm or deny the diagnosis.  Just grateful that the treatment is started straight away.

Sharon, I'm glad you're getting settled, but understand the clutter effect. I love CW's idea of things slowly disappearing. Good luck!\

BB-I hope Jovie is feeling better soon. Things seem to come in bunches and you've certainly had more than your share!

We're going out to Pittsburgh Thursday to see my mother - she's 92 and has been in good health until the past 3 months. She had pneumonia, used the emergency call button and when she was in the hospital, they found she needed a pacemaker. That went well, but this past weekend, she fell in her kitchen and there was some internal bleeding that they seem to have gotten under control. My brother lives about 15 minutes away from her and says that she's very fragile, has lost a lot of weight and for some time her sight has been getting very bad - she's refused to get new glasses. Surprisingly she's agreed to move into assisted living which she vehemently(sp?) opposed since her heart surgery-she's very independent and doesn't want to give up her dog. Anyway, we were planning to see her this week anyway, but now it seems to be more time sensitive. It's going to be a long, stressful 4 days! Good thing Randy's coming with me and will be doing most of the driving....

I'm glad to hear that you have been able to make some space, even if it is by just shoving the stuff aside.   It's a shame that you can't at least get rid of the broken stuff and clear a bedroom.  Maybe one piece at a time could go MIA???  At least you are able to work on something, and that's a start.  Good for you!!  I'm looking forward to seeing it when you've finished it!

Comment by Sharon yesterday

Yeah back online  sooo happy  still trying to get into a bedroom, Mom is a hoarder so I am unable to throw anything away- just relocate the boxes and bags-- they are all good stuff including telephones that short out the house , vacuum  cleaners that smoke when using ( and don't pick up anything ) and bags and bags of clothing that no longer fit. It is a problem but I can't live with mounds of stuff- it makes me nervous to be surrounded with junk. But slowly I am carving out a space- the computer is in the den where I shoved the "stuff" to one side so I have a small oasis to work in.  But I am working on a small piece, and hope to work on my blue jay quilt soon.

My youngest great niece Jovie, is in hospital with suspected meningococcal. High temp, rash, lethargy. She has improved overnight, and they treat for meningococcal first anyway although test results take 48 hours.  5:30am here- off to the hospital with Katie now.

Sandy, you better be careful or BB will have you making costumes soon too! Looks good so far - are the other three fabrics to be gathered and added on to the skirt?
