Olympic Events and Such



I ran across my small vintage sheet stash and I was inspired to
project that was going on a
couple of months ago.
I am still going to use an assortment of solids to make the wedges...
maybe some vintage greens, blues, orange/yellows and of course some pink!
I was making the four patches 
Friday morning (early)
when my day took a sudden change. 

My poor husband woke up realizing that he had had a stroke.
Life can sure get crazy quickly.
***


I had told him recently
 that it would  have been amazing to be in Rio to see the Olympics 
and Christ the Redeemer statue..
but  
as it turned out... we saw a lot of this statue outside the hospital
and watched the Olympics on a I phone in the ER. 
We also cried... 
and we 
laughed... 

what else can you do because you realize...
it could
 be
 worse.

And the bottom line is... the husband gets the gold!
He came home yesterday... only  slightly worse for the wear.

Grace, prayers and angels surrounded him and he
is recovering very well.

*** his speech came back and he only has slight weakness on his right side***
An amazing recovery and sight to behold.

On a much happier note.. 
last week started off with my 
oldest son getting married.
A small simple and sweet courthouse ceremony.
Which was just fine after two of his
 other brothers had weddings already within the last 4 months!

Here is the sweet couple!
Teague and Blakeley
8-8-16




I think
I might even make it back into the sewing room this week!

Thank God your husband is doing well. My DH had a stroke a couple of years ago, and had no lasting problems. Very fortunate indeed. You two may need a little vacation after all that's going on in your life!

Great news that your husband knew he had a stroke and you got him to hospital early = good recovery. Glad that you had a wedding to attend, nice exciting positive news to follow not so nice hospital visits. Hope you get to have a boring life in the sewing room next week :)
