Where has the time gone?

We had plans, heavy on the HAD, but it is all okay as things just work out that way some times. I have two older sisters, one 72 in Des Moines, IA and the other 63 lives 8 miles from me. We had reservations to stay in the Crescent View Bed and Breakfast in Crescent, IA, home of the ole Pink Poodle Steakhouse. First my sister near me got sick, then my DH got sick, now what does that tell ya? My sister was getting much better, and my DH was or still is suffering, but some better. To explain, my DH is a insulin dependent diabetic, for those who have never been around such an illness, stress, sickness, weather, and/or just about everything affects his blood sugars. So he can go from a wonderful 100, to 400, then drop to 20 in a matter of moments. Well maybe not that quick, but it is bad, so we decided not to partake in the B&B right now. We will be planning again, as life is too short, and we are not getting any younger. My first husband was 44 when he died, so life can be too short.
Enough of all that, hope everyone has had a great weekend, and I will be working on my "Live Forever Little Butterflies" quilt, so stay tuned.

  1. Hi Cottonwood,
    You may not remember me but we are friends on the Connecting Threads website. I have a blog as well if you want to check it out. It's . Just wanted to say Hi. I got on your connecting threads page and noticed you had a blog so thought I would check it out. I got on there to tell you I took a couple of machine quilting workshops at the AQS quilt show and tried out all the long arms that were on display. :) I would love to have a long arm and work at home but for now I think I will do the machine quilting to perfect my quilting.
    My mom has diabetes and has had since she was in her 40's. She is not 69, so I know what you are talking about. She manages it pretty well but even at the best of times things happen. She gave my dad a real scare here last month, he had to call an ambulance out to the country where they live. fortunately they have an ER doc living down the road who got there faster. Thank the Lord she is good now. Hope your Hubby gets well soon. Nice chattin with you. :)
