Good News!

Well, as you know I haven't blogged for a while and now I can share with you what's been happening in our life! Back in April my husband wasn't feeling well and went to the Dr. They decided that they would send him for x-rays. They found that he had blockages in his heart, not much to worry about but worth watching. After a month went by, he still didn't feel well and went back to our Doctor. He had a pain in his rib, so the doctor send him for a bone scan. It was there they found a tumour in the rib. From that point on we have been in and out of hospital, with tests, and procedures. They were talking bone cancer. We were in shock as you can imagine and with the love and prayers from all our friends and family, he went into surgery on July 29. They removed the rib and sent it off for further investigation. Waiting is one of the hardest things to do, but yesterday, we received a call from the Dr to say there is no cancer and the tumour was benign! We cannot thank Dr. Sharon Ong and Dr. Larry Lim form being two of the best Dr's in the world. We would also like to thank all those at Surrey Mememorial Hosptial, who made us feel special and cared for each step of the way. I know we always here of things that always bad about our healthcare, but here is one real story to say they are great! Thank you everyone for your support, prayers and expertise in the health field. We are sincerely grateful.

Now, what's been happening here in the studio! Well, I have 3 new patterns 2 which will be release at our Quilts At Tanglebank on Sept. 11, the third pattern will be released at A Great Notion, Abbotsford Store in mid September! I'm teaching EQ6 (7) at A Great Notion in Surrey, B. C on Sept. 28 in the evening. Check on line for more classes that I will be teaching at

I'm also desiging a new pattern for Northcott Fabrics for the spring to keep checking your local quilt shop or Northcott website!

Susan - so glad to hear everything's okay. You've been missed - looking forward to seeing the new patterns, unfortunately not at Tanglebanks, because we're away on vacation just then.
