June, so nice to meet you, I live in Moncton, well really Lutes Mtn., but that is just above Magnetic Hill. If you come to Moncton again soon, please let me know, would love to meet up. We are full time rv'er's, we stay around here in the summer and go south in the winter, this year we didn't get to go because my husband was and still is ill. We don't have a diagnosis yet but hope to soon. You know Medical, tests, wait, more tests, wait and so on. But we don't have to pay thru the nose for it, right? I first went to Nfld in 89 and loved it we usually go over once a year, love it. Must go look at your quilts now. talk later.
Funny how are lives are similar. My mom fell while in hospital having her medications monitored on June 17, and broke her hip and wrist. it was touch and go if they should operate but she came through it and has improved far more than we had anticipated. She is still in hospital, but considered long term care [paying for it monthly] and waiting until a room comes up in the LTC facility which is attached to the hospital. I live an hours drive away and was going in twice a week to see her, but I have not been going in so often lately - I found I was just so tired and wanted to be home more. Some nights I don't sleep very well - always seem to have some family member [with problems] on my mind. I guess once a mom always a mom - and I am a worrier to begin with. my sister lives in the town where my mom is, so that has been a blessing for me so I don't feel quite so guilty about not getting in there very often. Also on Sept 1, I lost my older sister to cancer. She was 3 days short of her 67th birthday. My mom had her 90th birthday in Sept. It has been a very hard year, yet I can say I have a lot to be thankful for too. I'll try to download a picture of my tote bag.
Hi June. How are things going way out east? We have snow on the ground here, but it has not been very cold yet. But lots of icy roads and fog as well as cloudy days mostly. I have slowly been getting back at quilting after a busy summer. I made a tote bag at our fall retreat and will now work on a smaller bag and a purse. These smaller projects are more fun as I seem to get them completed. I do however, pick up my EPP porjects whenever I sit down and thoroughly enjoy doing that. Hope everything is well with you. Take care, Darlene
