Ring That Bell and More


Can't help but smile with this guy!  He is a busy boy with lots to learn.
Twelve chemo treatments done and bell rung!  For those who don't know, DH went in for a routine colonoscopy last Fall and the discovery made of Stage 3 cancer.  I urge you to spread world of just how important it is to get exams!  After surgery it was discovered that cancer cells were in 6 of the 10 lymph nodes removed so chemo started immediately following surgery.  Now....we wait and remain hopeful.
My family at the beach last week.  Love these guys!  They are my rock, what matters, and keep always let me know just how much I'm loved and appreciated.
My girls (ok...my guy's gals) expressed interest in quilting without any arm twisting!


I think Kim will be excited the quilt I quilted for her on my blog.  I must apologize for not getting the quilt photos together for a post.  My blog is a quilt blog, promise!

This is the happiest post ever! Congrats in the bell ringing day, it's been hard won. Are the girls hooked on quilting now? Glad you family beach time was so much fun. Your family is growing! Love seeing my Minterrey Medallion here too. It's so so pretty! :-D

onlymehere said...

Congratulations on being able to ring the bell! We'll definitely still keep him in our prayers for a full cancer free recovery. My granddaughters like to sew with me too. I save scraps too small or skinny for anything and they use them to create with safety scissors, tape and staples! They're only 6, 4, and 3 so to time will come later for a machine. It's fun just being with them.

Judy in Michigan said...

Love that last quilt and of course you and your family. So nice to sew with your girls!!

Congratulations (is that the word?) to your husband and you for finishing treatment. That's a relief in itself. I love that the girls wanted to try quilting with you. So nice of them to be interested in what you do.
