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!

Cindi, so very sorry to hear this about your mom! I will put your family and mom on my prayer list. Take care of yourself so you'll be able to care for everyone else. Many blessings and prayers.

So sorry that you're all going through this. It's not easy, I know. It's good that you can all spend a bit of time together though and that, exhausting though it may be, you and your sister are taking the chance to spend time helping and just spending time with your parents - it'll feel unbearable and overwhelming sometimes but you'll never regret a second of it. Take care.
