Life throws me a Curve Ball

It has been nearly three months since I wrote my Blog. So much has happened since April 28.

Simon released his amazing Simon's Applique Magic technique and design CD. By the way if you have not downloaded the directions for his two quilts and the FREE additional designs, you are missing out. Please click on this link (scroll to bottom of page) to download the directions and the designs: This is an amazing new technique.

We also released our latest CD Coffee and Cream design CD. This includes an eBook as well with the directions to make the glorious little quilt. It is just so easy with fabulous quilted background, using gold metallic thread, with all the designs using Jenny's oh so easy Embroidered Decoupage technique. The other great thing is the designs can be stitched on a 225mm x 140mm hoop upwards.

The our curve ball struck. Out of the blue Simon was diagnosed with 'T ALL cell Lymphoma, Lymphoblastic Leukaemia, with an 18cm x 13cm x 8cm tumor in his chest, which nearly killed him. This followed with 46 days in hospital - including a week in ICU and 35 days on Steroids and chemo, six lumbar punctures and more out patient Chemo. He is home, now just had his lumbar puncture and if his white cell count comes up, back on Chemo again. You can follow his journey on: G. Haskins

Well today is a good day, the lumbar puncture went well and Cy is safely home and resting. Thank you everyone for your love and support at this difficult time in all our lives.

PS I have been trying to keep up with everything - yes I have been working on another design collection and eBook, but this is coming, as well as a new website design - very exciting.
