remember when you were a kid, and you would buy a Hello Kitty Diary, with a lock and key, and you promised yourself that you would write in it every day? How many days did you actually write? I topped three days, and then gave up… that seems to be what is happening to me here and I do NOT like it…

I am waiting with baited breath for my I-spy squares to get to Australia… the Israeli mail service, not so wonderful… home to Australian one is better…

And I have been busy with life, and work, and more life…

First, some work… two blankets ordered, one for a girl, and one for a boy.


and a close up on the applique…

I’m thinking about a mini-tutorial to show how to get the letters lined up so nicely (if I say so myself).. any thoughts?

And here’s the girl’s blanket….

i love the hand-stitching....

In other news, I have been diagnosed with Thyroid cancer. Papillary carcinoma, to be exact, and I generally don’t write much about my personal life here (except to she\ow pics of my kids), bu I felt the need to share. I am scheduled for a thyroidectimy in a month. I am nervous, but I also know that it’s a good cancer to get (if one can say that about cancer).

Reading what I wrote, it sounds like I am dropping a bomb on you, and that is NOT my intention. Just pray for me on March 11…..

That’s all for now… love ya!
