Sew Cindy News

Sometimes I wonder when I don't hear from a blogger where they've gone or what I may have said wrong etc. There are times I will send emails to check on them and most times I receive a reply. I don't always have a phone number, or an address but I did with Cindy and didn't even call her. (shame on me!!) But I did remember her saying earlier in the year that she would be blogging less and working on self. Cindy put herself first and was making some life changes health wise. Oh gosh I was so proud of her weight loss and efforts at working out daily and sticking with it! I left her alone and felt when ready she would email me.

Well, my phone rang this week and on the other end was a much welcomed phone call from Cindy of Sew Cindy. I was relieved to hear her voice and we chatted for quite awhile. I did ask Cindy if she wouldn't mind if I told you all the news and she didn't mind. She would tell you herself but struggling with blogger a bit and not spending much time on her computer. Cindy had a stroke. Thankfully her family was there and noticed she wasn't "right" and was able to send her air-vac to hospital immediately. Cindy's humor is still intact and she is a delight as ever. She finds humor in the fact that she can't work with numbers like she once did. She was a whiz and apparently didn't need the calculator. When she told me she now required a calculator I had to chuckle and say, "Welcome to my world!" Cindy has been getting back to her sewing room and told me that she was pulling out her Accuquilt GO! to make some pumpkins. If you know Cindy, Fall is her absolute favorite time of year! Oh and as for Cindy's weight loss goal; brace yourself as Cindy is now in a size 6! You GO girl!!

If anybody would like to send Cindy a snail mail card I will share her address. I do ask that the card be filled with humor! She loves to giggle and laugh.

Cindy shared the same info with me and we have emailed back and forth. I am really enjoying her friendship and maybe she will send me some of those pumpkins! Hoping our dear friend is back to sewing and blogging real soon.

I have been thinking of Cindy also! Which prompted me to take out a little something "fallish" I had won on her blog and I just started working on it! Darn those strokes have a bad sence of humor... I would love to send her a note:)
