My Dad

The past few weeks has brought with it some uncertainty in our house.  My dad,  was diagnosed with prostate cancer.  I know now that if he has to have cancer, it probably is the best kind and one that if most men live long enough will end up with it.  It doesnt make the day i found out any easier.  CANCER is such a scary word!!  They did 12 biopsies and of the 12, 7 came back positive.  They decided to make sure it hadnt gone into his bones or anywhere else so they did a complete body scan and bone scan which thankfully both came back clean.  Since he is 77 and has diabetes, he really isnt a strong canidate for surgery so they are going to do radiation treatments.  Not fun but at least the prognosis is good.

It has been really neat to see my older brothers offer to go with my mom and dad to the Dr's and I know my mom has really appreciated it.

More bags and other stuff

My bag making has dropped off but every now and then I get requests for them.  I need to write up a pattern for the crayon/pencil one because I have yet to find a pattern out there that turns out this cute. I may be a little biased.

I've also beenmaking bangles which has been alot of fun.  Here is a YW one I made with all of the value colors and I added my madalions to it.

Pattern Company

I've decided not to persue my pattern Company right now so I have canceled the blog.  I may do some designing for material Girls and if I do, i will keep you all posted. 

I am so excited for my upcoming trip to New York in June. Since it didnt really seem like I was needed/wanted at Trek, I decided to go on my own vacation.   My "3rd" sister Wendy and her family are moving back to Utah the end of the Summer so this is my last time to get to New York while they are there.  I do have to say I LOVE NY!! 

Some of the other things going on in my life include:

* sewing 12 skirts for Trek
* making bags
* making a king size quilt for my boss's son.

Keep watching for updates on my fitness post.
