Sunflowers ?

So we've had confirmation that the first chemo in the new batch will be next Monday (23rd).....
Karena is in some ongoing pain but in good spirits. As I write she is sitting on the sofa making a quilt - her latest hobby.
She has been making sunflowers for it (all hand-sewn) for some days now for her own grand design....tonight however she has completed the first few and realised that on completion of the delicate sewing activity her "sunflowers" actually look more like octopus hand puppets!!!! the theme for the quilt may change to more of an ocean-type thing !! I think she must have missed her true vocation in life. She is enjoying her new activity though but is clearly not a natural quilter.......!

Chemo on Monday will be a different drug to that used would really value your prayers that it has a radical impact on the cancer and knocks it for 6 (or more preferably!). Would also like your prayers for ongoing good health for the babe.

Thanking you so much for your continued love, support and prayers.....

PS : Karena says "Please pray for my quilt making ability!"


  1. If at first you don't succeed, try,try and try again! You can overcome all things Karena even the quilt! Our prayers are with you all. Lots of love M & D xxxxx

  2. Hilarious! Much success with the quilt however it turns out! And praying, praying and praying some more.. for the quilt and Monday! Loads of love The DS's xx

  3. Hiya, we're bringing dindins on tues - maybe when i drop it over in the afternoon, i could bring the quilt i'm making and stop for a cuppa?

    big love, Jess (del Rio)

  4. It must be something to do with the weather Karena. I've just spun some Darcy hair, and plan to make a scarf when I can find some knitting needles big enough!
    Praying for you.

  5. Its Monday so guess chemo is finished with by lets hope this has kicked it all into infinity!!
    as far as quilt making goes..a quilt is a quilt whether sunflowers or octopus design...I am in awe of anyone who can sew or knit or anything creative in that well done Karena
    Continuing in prayer....
