I feel your pain Hershey083. My brother-in-law has just been diagnosed with liver cancer as well. He has some really difficult decisions to make now. Just have to take it one day at a time. Will keep you all in my prayers.

If no one has any objections (and you're willing of course, lol), I wouldn't mind doubling up on partners so you would be able to participate!  :mail  :wreath

Hello Swappers!

  Today was very emotional.. He is still in hospital and kidneys are starting to shut down. They don't know if from cancer or from the dye used in testing may have "stunned" them.. so they may get better or they may not. If they don't well,  but if they do and he gets to come home,,, it will be his say so but now we know it will either be his house with us taking turns, or it will me my house with mainly me..so asking for lots of prayers from ya'll!! I am sad, but determined to enjoy as much as life can hold.. I just hope that I have what I need to do this all over again if I have to...

I have been out of town but heading home today so will be able to start on stocking stuffing for yarn_monkey tomorrow. At least I will have lots of thinking and planning time while driving.

 

Happy Monday and stocking stuffing to all!

You're so fast!!!!   :nworthy

I knew exactly what I wanted to make and I have to admit.  I knitted it, and I can knit faster than I crochet.  I learned how to knit first.

 

Now I am doing some crocheting to put inside it.  I am not going to be done first.

Hershey, I am so  sorry for you and your family. My thoughts and prayers for strength and comfort for all of you.

 

If you need to take some time off, just let me know. The last thing you need to be worried about is a swap deadline. I hope the crocheting provides some peace of mind and a mild distraction if that is what you want or need.

Tiff, if you want to join in, I have no problems with taking JustAddGlitter up on her offer to double swap. I know how fast you can crochet. :lol  Just let me know so we can do the official survey passing on stuff.

This is soooo much fun. I've been in contact with my partner and found a stocking pattern I think is perfect. Starting it today but have already been figuring out goodies. My thoughts and prayers are with all that are hurting. I went through that 7 years ago when I lost my 2 grandparents and my husband all in 15 months. It still hurts but God gets me through each day. And giving is healing. It really  helps heal a torn heart.  :manyheart  :ghug  :hug

so.... my partner Sandra and I are going to meet up and exchange since she comes to my town every Friday and Sunday!  How fun is that???? Bonus Win!

I had that once in a swap and it was a lot of fun.  We went out to breakfast with the DH's and they sat and talked, while we opened out gifts.  It was a lot of fun.
