And then there was good ...

It has been a long month and I am thrilled to have seen good ... as well as ugly.

It's time to share the good ... from the alarm installation technician who agreed to commute out to the cabin for no extra charge to install the alarm system there, to one of my amazing blog readers who was willing to send me an extra camera to help get me posting again, to the fabulous support and comments I've received from so many blog readers, to my wonderful husband who has had to deal with all of this over the past month and still organized a surprise for me this evening ... a new camera was waiting for me when I came home tonight!

And more good news ... John will be a grandfather for the 2nd time in October!  His youngest son and daughter-in-law are expecting a little girl in late October!  I am playing with the Rain or Shine pattern from Elizabeth Hartman's "Practical Guide to Patchwork" as a baby gift for her.

I am using Moda's Central Park by Kate Spain with a couple of additional fabrics and solids.  Quite happy with how it's coming out so far ... particularly my ability to match up all those points!

Oh yeah ... I ran a 10K with my husband on Saturday of this week.  He won his division ... I was a little slower than I had hoped, but still came in 12th out 27 of women in my age division ... so I'll take it and progress continues for my goal to run the 1/2 marathon in November.

So I am back ... and I am looking forward to sharing and reading more over the coming weeks!  I am indeed a luck lady ...

All the best,


  1. Hurray, hurray, hurray! Great job on the run -- congratulations to you and your DH.

  2. I love when the good stuff kicks in!!

  3. OH it's great to hear you sound so much more positive - it's amazing what kindness and a surprise or two can do to you - I bet you had a big grin on your face for quite a while yesterday - here's to more good news

  4. So glad things are going better for you! The quilt is lovely - grandbabies are wonderful!! Hoping to see much more of you (via blog) in the next little while!!

  5. Even in the bleakest of times there are rays of light -- I'm glad the light beams are showing through for you.

  6. I'm so glad you've had a series of such pleasant surprises and events after the bad ones lately.

    Your quilt is looking wonderful! New babies are so exciting. Congrats on the run too.

  7. Welcome back! Glad to hear things are working out for you. Great race, if I ran in a 10k I would be pulling up the back of the pack, so anything better than last place is a win to me.

  8. Rain or Shine is looking quite stunning in Central Park--great pattern--is it easy then?

    You ran a 10 K--you go on with your bad self girl! I couldn't do it!

  9. Love what you've got going on for that baby quilt! It really does look like the tops of umbrellas. Great fabric choices!

  10. Great fabrics! This looks like a really cheery quilt in progress!
