OMG 2012 is almost over and I am almost 53 years old. The Lord has been good to me and I thank him everyday. My quilting is not where I want it to be but despite all of my sickness and financial hardships this year I have managed to work on several projects. This year I launched the Quilting DIVAS Red Hat Group and I am looking forward to the fun and fellowship of this new group in my life. I continue to trust and believe that God will bless me with employment in his time as I continue to do his will. I have just discovered a FB friend Nancy Cash beautiful work and have fallen in love with her Circle quilt entitled Quilting Circle.

IQA almost over

Well it has been a wonderful experience again at the quiltmarket and festival. Of course I have met new friends and quilters from all over the USA and the world. The African American exhibit was outstanding and I was able to meet three of the artist. Carolyn Crump, Glenda Richardson, and Michelle Flamer.
The African American Yahoo group was represented also.

Oh My Time Flies By When You Having FUN!

Well I guess it is time for me to chat about what has been going on with me. Somethings good some not so good and some great. In May, 2011 I had a lump removed from my breast and is was non cancerous (yeah). I was also told I have the cancer gene in both of my breast and at some point in my life I will develop breast cancer. I did opt to monitor myself and have bi-yearly check up in hopes of catching the cancer at its onset. No chemo pills for me only monitoring. In August, 2011 I graduated from grad school with my Masters of Library Science. August, 2012 has come and I am still unemployed but faithful that my job is out there. In December, 2011 I had a hysterectomy and spent the New Years recuperating in Dallas with my twin. I don't know what I would have done without my twins help and encouragement at that time period of my life. My surgery had some complications and there were several mistakes made by the hospital staff during my recovery.Fast forward to July, 2012 and I end up back in the hospital for a 5 day stay. From what I am told my incision has developed scar tissue that has attached itself to my lower intestines. My intestine made several loops until it stopped my food from going down. Oh the pain... I thought I was just having indigestion but everything kept coming up and my stomach seemed to knot up each time I was hanging over the sink. Needless to say I am still working my part time jobs and full time job searching. Oh I forgot my best news is that in July I purchased a 2008 Chrysler Town and Country van. I was oh so tired of getting to work soak and wet from perspiration and changing clothes just to have a comfortable ride home. I have not been able to take a road trip in it but will as soon as the finances get better.
