Tisket a Tasket, block 9

Wow, summer is almost over and school is beginning again!  Where does the time go?   Pretty soon this wonderful block of the month that Anne has given us will be over.   Seems like it just started, doesn’t it?   The weather is starting to cool off, so it’s a perfect time to work with wool. (although you all know how much I like working with wool when it’s triple digits, LOL).  Okay, get busy now!

318 319

I wanted to thank all of you who have emailed me or my friends wondering where I’ve been.   Well, my Mom has been seriously ill for the past 3 weeks and I had to go to California.   She’s still not out of the woods, but hopefully she’ll be fine and back to her normal vibrant self soon.   

I’ll probably be going back down there next week if she’s released from the hospital as expected, so don’t worry about me if my blog seems “silent”.   I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you caring about me.   You’re all the best!

I took my little netbook with me, but wasn’t able to get any wireless reception in her neighborhood or the hospital (believe it or not!).   She has dial-up and I didn’t feel like I could tie up the phone line using her computer.  And, I never had time to go sit at a Starbucks.   So, the internet and bloggy world weren’t available to me.    I actually came home to 535 emails.   Yikes, how will I ever get thru them all.  Oh my!    Anyway, if you emailed me or commented on my blog, please forgive me if you didn’t get an answer.   I’m sure you understand.  

Hugs, Anne

Hope your Mom gets better real soon, Anne.

Another gorgeous WOOL block. Now I have a big dilema. How am I going to make my block with a Scottie (black) when I have a Westie (white). He'll never forgive me!

Karen said...

I am glad to hear that your mother is doing better and I do hope she gets home soon.

Your blocks look so good altogether. I am going to go check my wools and see if I have what it takes to do the blocks. Love the new block.

Best wishes for your mom's full recovery. A stressful time for you I'm sure. I'll just bet you had lots of handwork to keep your mind occupied. Loving your new wool block. As for the 535 e-mails...I say dump them and start fresh.

Good to have you back and all the best for your Mum. Don't worry about replying, you need sewing time! The blocks are great all together.

I came to your blog via Ann's and she is right - your wool version of her squares is just wonderful! Fabulous job!

Anne, I surely understand as not quite two years ago my mother became suddenly ill and I went home to Iowa for almost a month to be with her. Everything else "goes on the back burner" when these things happen. My mother recovered but it took her a year to really get her health back. I'll be thinking of you and your mom and hope that all goes well. I do love your wool blocks and think this Scottie one will be so fun to do!

Sue said...

That's a really cute one. Thank you for reminding me to download the new block! I have August and September and I will be caught up.

Carrie P. said...

You know I love your new block. So cute. So sorry to hear about your mom. Hope she gets well real soon. Take care of yourself too.

Kimberly said...

I hope your mom continues to get better... although an excuse for a visit is probably not a bad thing!
Your blocks are so beautiful! I love them all!
Take care, Kimberly

Kim D. said...

Thoughts and prayers headed your way for your dear mother. I sure hope she feels better soon. Your scotty block is as adorable as the rest. I look forward to seeing your wool blocks every month. :)
