Checking In...

I'm sorry I haven't been around much. We had another death in the family; my 27 year old cousin who was recently diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. He was diagnosed in early September, started treatment ... they said he had 3-5 years. It's been a difficult time for my family. He did give one last gift to the world, the gift of sight. His beautiful blue eyes, which were not effected by chemo were donated. All my future blue chemo caps will be donated in his name.

I had planned on resuming blogging last week, but the kids came down with the flu. Guess who has it now?

For those inquiring, yes, I am planning to teach a special crochet workshop in FL and having a crochet hook-up. Details soon, I promise!

For now, I'm headed back to bed. I'll be bringing Lily Chin's new book: Crochet Tips & Tricks: Shortcuts and Techniques Every Crocheter Should Know with me.

So sorry for you and your family. To be under weather on top of this really hurts. Please feel better fast and back to cheerleading. 8D
