Remember me....and Jamie
I took a quilting class last week with my Mom. We made schlep bags and they sew up mighty quick. We had each of ours made in 3 hours. My Mom's looks great and is in vegetable fabrics of bright colors. Of course, I did mine in cat fabric. I just got some more fat quarters to make another bag but my sewing machine is being serviced at the moment. There is quite an annoying squeak coming from it. I can't wait to pick it up this weekend.
I got some bad news on Monday. My cousin Christoper's wife, Jamie died after a long battle with breast cancer. She was diagnosed with it while she was pregnant with their son Jason, 2 1/2 years ago. They couldn't do anything for her at that time because they didn't want to hurt the baby but as soon as she had him, she started treatment. The cancer was really bad for a while and then it seemed to go away and she was doing really well. They went to Disney World a few months ago and had a wonderful time. However, after they returned from their trip, the cancer came back and moved into her liver. She died at her home with her family this past Sunday morning. She just turned 30 a month ago. I feel so bad for Chris and Jason. At 2 1/2, he can't possibly begin to comprehend what is going on or where his mommy is. Jamie was a beautiful, intelligent, caring woman and I hope her family is able to heal from their loss at some point in their lives.
