Jane's Update

i expect most of you know by now that I had a crazy turn in my life recently. I developed lymphoma in my thyroid which caused difficulty breathing and eating and talking and all that stuff that goes on in your neck.
I ultimately had surgery and have begun chemotherapy which should cure this condition. It was very scary and very difficult for a couple of weeks that felt like a lifetime.
I didn't get my space quilt completed. And it was my theme! I had decided to do something on outer space because when I started art quilting, I made several Nova or Supernova pieces. My vision of outer space is very colorful and explosive.
I dyed a piece of silk for the background then started painting on it using some techniques Gail had shared with me. That is as far as I got before this medical emergency hit.
I hope to be back in the studio again soon. Until then, I hope you will continue to pray for me. The prayers I have already felt have been a great comfort.
Thanks for embracing the theme with such diverse quilts.


  1. It is such good news that the worst is behind you and you can concentrate on getting well. We missed your participation and quilt. Bunches of Hugs!

  2. Jane, I am just now getting to this post, and I am so sorry. For once I am the one who's been having problems with my Google account,but hopefully all is well now. Anyway, I have all kinds of hope for your rapid recovery! If at some point you feel the urge to make a Space Quilt, go on and do so with no worries about when it's posted! All of us have had you in our thought and prayers!
