An Explanation and Update !!

Its taken me a while to build up to writing this post as I wanted to keep this blog relatively free of personal things as I don't know if people are interested in that or just sewing.  However, its been two months since I last blogged and I just wanted to give a brief explanation.  A few months ago my mother's doctor discovered a lump on her thyroid.  After an inconclusive Fine Needle Biopsy it was decided that she needed half her thyroid (and Isthmus) removed in order to discover whether the lump was malignant.  This operation occurred six weeks ago, two weeks later we got the fantastic news that the lump was benign and had no suspicion of cancer.  Although we have just discovered that she will need to take medication for the rest of her life you can imagine how delighted we are that she is OK (although she is still recovering from the op).  This has been an extremely dark time for us because we lost my Grandmother (her mother) unexpectedly only two months before this lump was discovered.

Sewing is and has always been my coping and comfort mechanism but I have just not been able to settle down to any sewing and make any real progress on any project so it seemed pointless blogging and letting you see no progress at all.  In the last couple of weeks I have started getting into a groove again, just taking it slowly but I am starting to really enjoy it again.

I hope it was ok to write the above but I wanted you to know just where I have been as although I haven't been sewing myself as much, your blogs and progress have given me happiness to look through and make me still feel part of the sewing world.  Now back to the sewing so next month I will actually have a Monday Update for you !!!!!

Happy Stitching Everybody  !!
