Life just won't stop!

I can never seem to find enough time to sew these days!  This weekend I had big plans to visit my family back in Lansing {and visit a few quilt shops} on Saturday but just as we got there we got a call that my grandma was in the ER at a hospital in Reed City and was going to be transferred to Grand Rapids.  We took off Saturday from Lansing and found our way to GR to visit.  She was unresponsive but we stayed late and eventually ventured off to find a hotel.  We called 6 hotels and managed to find the ONLY room left in 20 miles!  I was so thankful when we checked in at 11 that I was beside myself.  Richard had said why we were in town and in the morning we found a card with free breakfast for us slid under the door with our bill.  I was just so astonished and thankful to those ladies at the front desk.  When we left they weren't there but I fully plan on writing them a thank you.

Sunday we went back to the hospital to get the update on her condition.  We were there for a couple of hours before I ever found out that she had woken up a few times and was responding!  She was shortly taken in for surgery to clear an abyss on her throat and to relieve pressure on her spinal column both due to infection that has spread to her blood.  The surgeons said that she made it through wonderfully so we are crossing our fingers for recovery and we are all expecting the best.  I will more than likely be back in Grand Rapids this weekend so there may not be any progress on my projects.  Hopefully sliced apples doesn't start this week- I would hate to be behind in the first week!


  1. Sorry to hear about your grandma! I hope all turns out well for her. While you are there, if you need a break, you could visit the Attic Windows quilt shop on Alpine Ave (north) near 6 mile. They have a wonderful shop. Don't worry about SA we don't begin until May 14th!

  2. Sorry to hear about your grandma! Hope things are better by now. When you do come to Grand Rapids I hope you will do at Mama Spark suggests and visit the Attic Window. It's a cute shop. It's not my shop. I just teach there, but I think you will love it. Take care.
