Happy Spring!

I have not written in quite some time.  I keep up with the blogs but just have not taken time to post.
I really have not been doing much sewing.  We started kitchen remodel back in the fall.  It is not complete.  Had to put it on hold until after Christmas and then one thing and another and we are not complete.  The painter is suppose to get started this week.

February brought us a new grandson, Thomas Clifton Scott.  This is our youngest son,Clifton's 3rd child.  Clifton is in Med school in the Grand Cayman Islands.  He will come home in mid-April and move the family to the island.

Our grandson, Julian has been very sick for several weeks.  Julian has CP and after 14 days of not being able to keep food, and being hospitalized, they finally determined that his shunt system was really not functioning correctly.  He was transferred from Columbus to Jackson and underwent 2 cranial surgeries in 2 days. He is doind much better and will go back to school on Monday.

My Mom, 83 yrs old, had a stroke on the day that we transferred Julian to Jackson.  She was hospitalized in Columbus for several days and last weekend as we were bring Julian home, we were transferring her to Jackson to Methodist Rehab Center.  She has been through extensive evaluation and we are very encouraged.  We will be bringing her home on Tuesday.  She can eat, is very mobile, but her severe weakness is communication and problem solving.  My sister has been living with Mom for  year due to the loss of her job.  She has been staying with Mom in Jackson and said that the communication is improving daily.  We are so excited.  Long way to go, but a fighter.  I feel comfortable that she will return to a somewhat independent woman.

With all of this, I am getting excited about starting some summer sewing.  I have a couple of Easter outfits cut out and will have to get very busy in the next week.  I have completed some applique for the new grandson, Thomas, and his oldest sister Nora Ruth.

I hope to get more sewing done now.
