Tough Weekend

After spending 1 week in the hospital and 1 week in a Transitional Care facility, I brought my mom home on Friday afternoon. She made it to the door of her house and collapsed. She had a massive heart attack. I called 911. I gave her CPR while waiting for them to come--which took 7-8 minutes. They got her back and rushed her to the hospital. She is on a ventilator and in a coma. It's not looking good and I still can't believe all of this has happened. It has been only 5 months since my dad passed away.

Please pray for my mom and my family. The doctors are watching her condition until tomorrow to make further decisions.


I did receive my FTT fall exchange from Moni.


This acorn is a Prairie Schooler Design. It is wonderful!

She also sent me a very generous piece of some beautiful linen, a pack of variegated flosses, a small container (great for beads or buttons), Hedgehog buttons--a family of them, a keychain with an owl on it which she made at a workshop at her local quilt store, a great pattern (how did she know I wanted one of these designs?), all of the felt decorations in the picture and the fabric in the background.


Thank you Moni!
