I sincerely hope you are all well.....
October has not been a month of many blog posts from me; I know.....
The last few weeks we spent a lot of time with family and friends.
There is so much to share and I will post everything but this is just a start. And with just a start this already is a long post. Be prepared....
We've been helping one of my sisters with a bit of renovating in their home. We had 5 fabulous days with them. It has been wonderful to be together, spend some time together, working and painting ( Marcel and my BIL worked on a new bathroom and Marcel did some carpentry...he was educated as a carpenter...sooooooo handy!!!). And of course we did some relaxing too and laughed so so much; it made my belly hurt.
We also started painting the guest room at our house and cleaned out the mess :)
I will post photos once the room is finished!
While we were at my sisters' house my sister and I also spent some time painting boxes ( small ones for interior Christmas decorating) and sewing. That means; I watched my sister sewing :) And yes these photos will be posted soon too.
But there was more going on...
My FIL is not getting better ( as you already know). At first when he came home he recovered quite good from the surgery. He's still on his feet and able to walk again. Not much but enough to get around the house and enjoy getting outside in the garden. His mental condition is not as good as it has been. he's slightly starting to forget things. At first that has been been hard to accept for him but at this moment it seems that he's accepting it.
My heart breaks when I watch him and my MIL..how much time do they have left together...weeks? A few months? We don't know and we are just keeping our fingers crossed..
Looking around me I know that there is so much to be thankful for and I feel privileged with being healthy, my family, friends and the life I live.There are so many people who have to deal with a lot of problems and I know I am blessed.
On a lighter note:
I also made a few cards again..not for a challenge but just for fun.
I recently bought some "Tilda" fabrics (coming soon) and papers. I love their new collection called "Winterbird". There is lot of blue in this collection and I had to have it!
Well hello there....
That doily die is still a favorite die to use:
And here is my card
But there is another card....there is the another winterbird...and some pearls
the pom pom trim is a gift from Cathy; the color is spot on!
These roses from Marinanne Design are another favorite of mine:
And here is the card
I know there is a lot to look and read at your blogs; I know what I will be doning tonght..and the upcoming evenings...
Till soon; have a lovely day/evening and take care....
