3 more days!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas mine was different this year in  a few ways  most were out of my hands but there was 2 that sadden me greatly and  that is all I will say on that matter....
You know I really want to go on a vacation.  I have never been on a vacation in all of my 38 yrs of wedded bliss but for the first time I really want to go on one, just a mini one.  But my DH is a home-body so if it happens I will have to go with a friend or family member or really when I think about it is a vacation so bad to take on your own???  For those of you that have been on one maybe you can tell me.  I am going to start taking my Christmas decorations down..  I usually do this on NY's day but maybe if I do it now all the old baggage will stay with last year and I can ring in the New Year nice and fresh.  I hope you all have a wonderful New Year and I hope you have many, many good things happen......
As far as stitching goes I am getting back to my "Easy Street" mystery quilt and seeing how far I can get considering I am still on the end of step 1.  Have a good night all.  I hate to post without any pictures so I will leave with one and this was a prototype of the few that I did for my daughter....
I will post where I got the instructions for these when I remember where I got them.  Maybe my daughter can help me out here since she sent me the original site or if there is anyone else out there that made them....night all.

Prayers for my Brother

Yesterday morning my brother called me and said he wasn't feeling well could I come over to take him to the hospital.  We live pretty close so I went over there, when we did his vitals I told him we needed to call an ambulance.  He gave me a little grief about it but gave in and I am so glad he did.  He was having a heart attack @ 49 years old.  I called my sister and Mother and they too came to the hospital.  I followed the ambulance and when we got there they took him in to have a catheization immediately.  When it was over Dr. Conn came out and said he will defiantly need a bypass that all his arteries were at least 50% but that he was not a candidate right now.  He said they would try to treat him orally for right now and keep a close watch on him until he was stronger.  The problem they are having is when they give him oral medicine to bring his blood pressure down it does not work they have to put him on a nitro drip in order to get it down.  Then they take him off the drip and it starts to go back up again so then it is a repeat back on the drip.  We will find out more today but if I could request a prayer from those who pray I would appreciate it and for those who do not if you could send him some good Karma I would appreciate it.  I will post an update when I know anything different and thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Update:  12-19  This afternoon they did manage to find a mixture of blood pressure medicine that has worked to take him off of the nitro-drip.  It has worked for about 5 hours now so hopefully it will be the one.  Thank you all for your prayers they mean so very much!
He was also told that he will need to have a triple bypass at a later date....The doctor did not say when he just said that he will be monitored closely and given medicine to help make sure that his heart can heal a little bit before he goes into surgery.

Update 12-23  Mt brother is home just feeling worn out but better.  He will go in to have a triple bypass in the middle of February as long as he has healed some.  The docs and all of us really are hoping that no other events happen in between now and then to force the docs hand at doing it earlier than that.  Thank you all for you warm thoughts and wishes.

Happy Birthday, Linda

I made this for my friend, Linda.  She had a birthday around thanksgiving and she loves indigo so this was her gift along with one of these marking pens for fabric and I just love them so I thought she may  like to try one.  You can mark your quilt and then iron it and the lines will disappear.....
I hope you have a wonderful birthday!

Share a new experience for me

Good morning...I wanted to share a new experience that I had yesterday for the first time oh in about 9 months...I was getting out of my car and going into Bi-Lo and for the first time in a long time I felt the wind in my hair!  Now I know that is not allot to some of you but for me it was awesome.  Since I had my cancer and started treatment in February and then lost all my hair by April it has finally reached about an inch and a half long and I could feel the wind blowing it...I almost cried..I wanted to share this good experience with all of those who have helped pull me through with good thoughts, prayers and sent good Karma my way, thank you!  Have a great day.
