The biggest news around here is that Sparkle Jane, that wonderful 13-year old quilter, had hernia surgery yesterday. This is her second hernia, the first being repaired when she was four. Some of you may remember that she had heart surgery in January. It sounds silly to say that she is a very healthy person, but she really is. There are just these little things that need fixing.
It makes for a long day. But, today is a new day. The sky was beautiful this morning, reminding me of the value of fresh starts and also to count my blessings, which are many.
That is part of why Sparkle hasn’t been posting much. She has a lot of projects in the works, but she also has had a lot of distractions. Hopefully she will be back to quilting, cross stitch, crochet, ballet, school, swimming, chasing chickens…well, you get the idea…SOON!
ps–Last week we were at the doctors three different days. Once for Sparkle (surgery consultation) and twice with Young Son (dehydration that was masquerading as a cardiac issue–go get a drink!) and orthodontist consultation (braces in September). Nothing that can’t be fixed. Just the realities of raising children. They are my greatest treasure. In quilting news, I am building a block or so a day–just simple ones–and will have at least my monthly block report to share.
