I have not been blogging much because I have not been sewing much.  In the last month my mother was put in the hospital and diagnosed with stage 4 cancer that had metastasized and spread to her brain and lymph nodes.  I have spent most of my days at a hospital or doctor's office.  The oncologist told us Thursday that she had only 6-12 months to live if she responded to the radiation.  If not 4 or less.  The brain tumor is in her motor strip and has affected her memory and motor skills.  I have several syblings so I don't have to go through this alone and lots of extended family.  It's just when I do have a moment to myself I am so exhausted mentally as well as physically I can't get much done.  I had started this needle roll for my daughter and got to the first stage the night before Mom first went to the ER.
I finally made myself finish it a few days ago. 
I have several projects to work on, I just don't really feel up to it right now.  Maybe, as the suddeness of this wears off and the whirlwind of things to take care of slacks off I will get myself back together.
Sew Long for Now!
