When you don't know where to start, just jump in.

In December Mr. O's mother suffered a painful injury and came to stay with us for a few weeks. Michelle had her own medical fun of the recurring variety, unfortunately. And somewhere in there Christmas happened and my sisters and their families came for visits. And during the annual ski outing my brother broke his leg while snowboarding-in three places!

It's been non-stop around here. I've been to the hospital more times than I care to count in the past three months, that is just the way it is right now. Our Christmas tree is still up, and I'm considering hanging up some construction paper hearts and just calling it a Valentine's tree. That could be a thing, right?

I've been trying to fit in more sewing projects because in about a week I won't be able to move my neck to look downward. I'm so out of practice writing in this little space here, that for now, this is it.

I'm sorry things have been so crappy. I think this quilt is my favorite of all that you have posted lately. What are you having done to your neck? I'll keep you in my prayers. xx

The quilt is absolutely beautiful.

And a Valentine's tree is way okay. In fact, you should keep it up for Easter and hang cute crafty eggs on it.

Good luck with your surgery. I will be praying all goes well.

Wow....sorry that it's been so hectic! But, yeah go with the Valentine tree - totally acceptable

Sorry to hear about your frequent trips to the hospital... You need a punch card! But your quilt-making skills are truly artistic and amazing (appreciation abounds from someone who doesn't even sew on buttons!)

That is a gorgeous quilt!
I hope that things settle down now and that you get some peaceful, relaxing times for a while.
