Quilt With Us

It's been awhile since I've posted on here.  As with everyone, life gets in the way too much.  We are in the middle of remodeling our kitchen, that was started the day after Christmas.  DH is doing all the work himself (I assist where I can).  With both of us working FT, it seems to be going at a snail's pace, but half of the kitchen is now done!  

My sister, Katie was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in November.  She had surgery two days before Thanksgiving and began chemo last Tuesday.  It's been a roller coaster of emotions, she was scheduled for a second surgery for January 8 because the cancer is in her lymph nodes, but they decided to forego that and try to zap it with chemo.  In between remodeling and the holidays, I managed to make a 'comfort quilt' for her.  She loves teal, so I sorted through my stash and found these fabrics.  Here's a pic of the cinch sack I made for the quilt.  It's perched on my new kitchen counter top! We're praying and hoping for the best for her.

You have a lot going on Sue. What a lovely quilt for your sister. She will feel your love whenever she wraps herself in it. 

Remodels ... they are a challenge as there are always some unexpected things that come up along the way. Glad you are making progress, even if it is slow.

I sorry to hear that your sister must battle that terrible disease. I know the beautiful quilt, and the love in every stitch, will give her strength and comfort.

Your sister will absolutely love this comfort quilt and she'll treasure is it, because you made it with so much love for her and one of her favorite colors. Keeping her in my prayers. Yep, we hire remodeling done and agree with Pam.

Sue, she will get so much comfort having that quilt keep her warm during treatments. Prayers sent for her.

Remodeling is for the brave and hardy! Especially, if you're doing it with a spouse! Because we don't know a good divorce attorney, we hire it done!!!

Janet, I did not realize that teal was the color for fighting ovarian cancer, that's good to know. My sister has loved teal for years, she even had a house with teal countertops in the kitchen (her choice).
And, yes, kitchen remodeling jobs are a huge project! We remodeled a bathroom last May/June with tiling and all. We've lived in our house almost 23 years and it seems something is always getting redone/remodeled, at this point, we are redoing redone! My DH is brave to tackle the remodeling, he has a knack for it apparently. I just hate the mess and how unsettled everything is.... It is worth it in the end! I'll post a picture when we are all done!
Thank you for the prayers for my sister!

I'm sorry to hear that your sister is suffering from that terrible disease.  A woman in my quilt guild has it too.  She will gets lots of comfort from that lovely quilt you made for her!  Did you know that teal is the color for fighting ovarian cancer or was that just a coincidence that you chose that color?  Remodeling is never fun, but it can be so worth it in the long run.

Good wishes for her recovery are coming to your sister from here!  Glad you finished the quilt for her (and the cinch bag); she will need the comfort.

You and your DH are brave souls to undertake the remodeling of your kitchen by yourselves!  Bathrooms are next in my house, but you can bet DH and I are not tackling that alone!

Prayers for your sister. I am sure she will love and appreciate it very much, it's beautiful!

Good luck with the remodelling, it always seems to take forever! The counter top is gorgeous!
