Hello again

Well this post is way overdue. We had a great time last August in Scotland and of course we want to go back again this year, probably in July because we didn't get to see inside Edinburgh Castle last year because of the Tattoo.

I met my cousin George, his wife Janet and his sister Jane. We visited most of the places where I grew up and this time we want to finish off some more of the sites we missed.

As for handwork, this year I have not been so busy with beading as on last years. I think maybe I have made a very few bracelets and maybe a necklace or two.

This year I want to get back to sewing, quilting and embroidery as well as some beading but of course after the renovations and getting everything back from storage I have lots of boxes still to sort though. Slowly I will get there. I did manage to knit a cowl for my grand daughter Tomer and a Scarf for Jane which hopefully should go in the mail to her soon.

That's about it for now.

Warm hugs,

I realize that I should most definitely update my blog, it is long overdue. At the moment I am in the process of trying to photograph some of my creations and will post them as soon as I can manage to get some good clear photographs taken. I really need to get myself back in gear again.

Warm hugs,

Well it definitely has been ages since I updated my blog. Such a lot has happened since then, it's hard to even think about it.

When I last wrote my husband had been in the hospital because one of his toes had been completely black and covered in fur. It had to be amputated, they also took off two more toes which didn't help and after moving him to a different hospital in November 2011 he had his leg amputated below the knee.

He was in and out of hospital getting a false leg attached and learning to walk again. He was released from hospital on March 1st 2012 and on March 13th my mother passed away after being in coma for 5 days.

We had monthly check ups with Shalom and his leg. After his heart attack in October of 2000 when we were told he had only two more years to live and then the cancer in 2008 where again we had been told he would have only two more years we were quite hopeful in November 2012 when he was measured for a new leg. We thought that here we are with his heart working at just 23%, it was holding up just fine.

Then suddenly out of the blue came November 30th. I had spoken to him at five minutes past 4 asking him when he would like to have the Friday meal. We decided on 6 pm and I went into my work room to work on a necklace I had started just 2 days before. He said he was going to watch TV and suddenly I heard what I thought was a laugh, I called out from my work room asking him what he was laughing at since he usually called me to see. He didn't reply and then I heard the noise again. I got up to see what he was laughing at and found him laying down on the couch. I tried to wake him but couldn't, I called my eldest son Eyal who told me to call an ambulance. The paramedics arrived within minutes at twenty past 4,  they managed to get a weak pulse after working on him for quite a while, and transferred him to a hospital telling me to bring all his medical records with me.

My second son Orren went in the ambulance with Shalom and the paramedics, Eyal, Liat and I followed in Eyal's car. By the time we parked and got to the ER, Orren told us it was over. His heart had decided it was time.

 Goodbye my love.

Will update soon

So much has been going on over the past few months, I had a short holiday at the beginning of July (after the excitement with the wedding and all that had to be done, like making the bride's dress etc.,) and then it was a rush to get items ready for the exhibition at the store where I take classes and make items as models for the students. DH has been in the hospital for the past 10 days so it's not easy at the moment.
With our New Year coming up at the end of the month I hope to have some time to upload some new photos of the items I've made and also get caught up with everything else.
Warm hugs,

We have a gorgeous new grand daughter. Hagit and Orren became the proud parents of Yael yesterday morning. She weighed in at 3 and half kilos and is such a little cutee.

Also Liat won a gold medal in her swimming contest this morning. We told Eli that he should give up competing and only coach Liat for now - LOL.
