Wow, It's Been a Long Time!

Sorry for being away for so long. It's been a trying time here for me. Last week I ended up having a complete hysterectomy and removal of a lymphoma from my abdomen. Super glad to have all of that behind me and am trusting in the Lord for complete recovery. Still feeling a bit like I've been hit by a truck, but that seems to get better each day. I'm supposed to be walking 20 minutes, 3 times per day already and am finding it to be a bit more of a challenge than I had expected. At any rate, I'll get there. If you are a believing Christian, I would appreciate your prayers for full recovery. Thanks a bunch! The prognosis is apparently very good.

Now for more interesting things to post....

Wanted to share some photos of the friendship group I belong to. Each month one of us hosts the group and this month was my turn. I live in a small coastal town, so we usually like to meet for some fish or chowder prior to the meeting. So here we are! We had a good time that night sharing our progressive projects and ending with watching my nephew, Tyler Anderson, on the Food Network show, Chopped. Hope everyone else had as much fun as I did that night!! What a great bunch of gals these are!

I've noticed on some other blogs I read that several people are sharing their first quilt. I hope to do that in my next post. It's interesting to say the least! Boy the things I've learned!

Until then, God Bless!

  1. Wow, Melanie, that's a big surgery to go through. I hope the walking and recovery gets easier. I will definitely keep you in my prayers.
    I'm not stitching much these days as I'm studying for a certification at work. I hope you can get some stitchin' while 'yours' are healing :-)
