Mystery Sampler

Today I am hoping to get a chance to work on my mystery sampler. Yesterday, I spent the entire day cleaning my room and organising everything. There's more to do, but I ran out of steam around 7 last night. Believe me, I had a mess going on in there! It's amazing that I could even get to the bed to sleep in it! Today, I will do some more organizing and putting more things away. Hopefully, then I can just come home from work and do my stitching like I want.
I finally found a quilt pattern that I like and want stitch up for my grandson's birthday. A-hem...I hope to stitch up for his birthday. That is not all that far away. And since the shortest month of the year is between now and then, I have even less time. I kind of know which fabrics I want to use, that will be the hardest part of the whole thing...just deciding on the fabric! And that is the reason I have been doing all the organising...so I have space in my little corner of the house to get it done. If I work in other parts of the house, I would have to get everything out to work on it and put everything back each night I finish...too much time wasted.
I heard a rumor from my daughter that my next door neighbor passed away. The rumor was; that she and her husband had gotten sick and she ended up in the hopital and then died. I wanted to go to their house yesterday to ask them to tell me the truth, but I couldn't bring myself to do that. I don't want to know the truth unless it is that she is actually recovering. She and I are friends...she is a very private person and would occasionally come outside and visit. In the eleven plus years I have lived here, I have only been in their house three times. I always wanted to respect their needs. I don't know what to do...I am very afraid of the truth. The person who told my daughter would have no need to embellish or outright lie. I like this woman so much. She is a retired police officer from a long line of police "people". She has a great sense of humor. She is only in her late 40's! I guess I just need to get over myself and go find out, then offer her husband my help. If this rumor is true, I am sure that there are things that need to be done that he won't want to do. I don't know...this just bites...

Thank you so much for your warm & kind words Claudia - they meant a lot to me. I feel so very grateful to have become part of this very caring community.
Your grandson is absolutely adorable - what a joy he must be for you. And what a cutie your dog is - a great picture.
Will be checking back again soon to see the progress on your Mystery Sampler.

Thanks for stopping by. The music you heard is from American McGee's Alice. It's a pc game and a twisted versioin of Alice in Wonderland.
I love that game and the music in it, so I thought I'd share.
The player is at the bottom of the screen. You can choose from 6 songs.
