How Many Parts Will It Take to Catch Up?

Well, I am definitely feeling like a total stranger here on my own blog.  Time to make myself sit here and do some catching up.

First of all, there have been some major changes with me Mum. Julie is no longer her caregiver.  I lived with Mum for 5+ weeks while we were deciding what was going to happen next.  I am not sure how Mum felt, but I definitely treasure that time together.

After much discussion of several different options, we all agreed that a nursing home was the next step for Mum.  And, yes, 'we' includes Mum. So, we were able to get her into our first choice of the nursing homes here in Canon City.  Mum is slowly making the adjustment.  It doesn't help that her hearing aids seem to have gone kaput at this time, but we are working on that issue.    


 There are a ton of activities that Mum can take part in.


Here are some recent photos of Mum at Skyline...

playing BINGO...

outside in front of the nursing home...mountains as her backdrop...

playing cards with me and Jill...

And, that is that...in a nutshell.

My goddaughter/niece, Jody, came for a visit with her daughter, Kalyn.  They live in Los Alamos...about 4 1/2 hours from here.  We all had a great time!



I didn't get much sewing done when I was with me Mum, but I have some projects to show!  Working with my scraps, I made 25 log cabin blocks.  Here is a small representation...



I have a plan to put them together in a fun way.  Stay tuned (but don't hold your breath).

Right after I finished those blocks, I started another scrappy project...this time, making pineapple blocks.  Those were very time-consuming, but I loved making them.  All 49 of them! 
And, here is a small representation of them...

 Okay, that's it for Part One.  So much more to show you...I'll be back to do that very soon!  I promise!

I am glad you were able to find such a nice place for her. In most cases it becomes a necessity and then you are stuck with what you can get. Looks like you are still able to find time to make some beautiful quilts.

Gorgeous, scrappy block! I'm admiring all the fun fabrics in them too!
Looks like your Mum's new place is doing good for her. It's not easy finding a balance with decisions like these.
