"Life Happens When You Are Planning Other Things"

I am finally getting around to showing you how wonderful Maggi looks in her new jackety-shawl. Sorry that it took me so long to show your wonderful picture, Maggi.  
  My life was interrupted big time when my husband developed chest pains which evolved into quadruple bypass surgery. I was reminded of the words to the song God Laughs by Delta Goodrem. The chorus is:
 "We're all walking in quicksand, 
When we're busy making our plans,
God Laughs." 
The song is a bit cynical but often so true.

 To keep myself marginally sane, I have been making jackets for the holidays, putting vintage lace and fun vintage appliques on them. 

Love and hugs to all,


  1. So sorry to hear of your husbands surgery but glad his problem was caught in time. I'll bet he will be kicking around for many years now. The jackety shawl on Maggi looks fantastic! Your generosity never fails to inspire me to be more generous. It really looks great on her, love that red.
    Best wishes to you and your husband for good health. Keep pounding those fibers!

  2. Thanks Jan, I sure do appreciate your very kind thoughts. Hugs

  3. Cameron, I am so very sorry to hear about your husbands surgery. Do hope that things will improve for both of you very soon.

    More lovely creations.

    Hugs and best wishes,


  4. Cameron...that must have been very scary. For you quiet time and for your husband well healing time


  5. Sorry to hear about your husband. I do hope that the surgery went well and that he is well on the road to recovery. Thank goodness they caught it in time. I love the jackety-shawl and can't wait for the weather to cool down so that I can wear it.

  8. Thank you, you wonderful friends. I so appreciate the support that you are giving me from around the world. I really feel it.
    My husband is now home after only 4 nights in the hospital. This whole thing amazes me. We have a lot of work to do with healing, breathing, walking and rehabilitation classes, but we are doing it together and staying positive. Again, so many thank yous.
    Love and Hugs to all of you, Cameron
