Sometime Things Just Don't Go As Planned

A short explanation of why there hasn't been any recent blog posts and why I missed the last chance to be a part of  Eileen Hull's Scoreboard Blog Hop.  I had been working with the die-cut bow shapes that Eileen sent out to participants.  Some time back, I sent a packet of materials to Eileen, and ask if she would use her dies to cut whatever she could from the materials sent.  Using the bow die, she was able to cut Lutradur, Taracloth and quilter's vinyl.

By Sunday evening I had four bows ready to be formed.  I began to write the blog post and added the links that were available.  By Monday evening I was working on the paper bow and would just need to take photos on Tuesday and tweak a few things to be ready for Wednesday morning.

Tuesday brought an unexpected trip to the hospital emergency room with my husband.  Without going into details, we found ourselves at the ER, with the possibility that he had suffered a stroke.  We were hit with the news that he was going to be admitted for more testing because a small tumor was found on his brain and lungs and adrenal gland.  Needless to say our lives were turned upside down, never thinking that would be the news.

We are home now ... waiting for results from a biopsy, then consultation with several doctors on how and the best way to proceed.

I will keep myself busy with crafts to help get me through this.
