 There has been a lot of this going on around here. And I don't mean quilting.
I've barely touched my machine all week. I'm hugely distracted.
I found out last week that my little (6ft 5) brother is has going in for major surgery this next Tuesday.
I'm having emotional issues that are keeping me distracted and incapable of doing much of anything.
I only thing I've accomplished was packing up my hexies. Will I even be able to do this as I wait in a hospital waiting room? We shall see.

I leave early Monday morning to make my way north to Portland Oregon.
I'm probably not going to be around much next week.

Take care and Please keep us in your prayers,
Brandie
