Sorry...I am peddling as fast as I can..........

Please forgive me....
I have been absent from technology...........
I am grieving the loss of my dear brother Larry in May........
My beloved Ken has been diagnosed with an aggressive prostate cancer........
the search has been intense to find the right procedures ....
Ken has begun his chemo...and has 43 days of radiation ...8 weeks....daily during Monday > Friday...
He wanted to be closer to Columbus..we saw a small Grandma house 5 minutes from Erin......
Close to the hospital...doctors..and the grand kids..............
We saw a house on a Monday..put a bid in on Tuesday.....and closed on my birthday 9/6/13.........
We have been making decisions about colors.....moves.....adaptive plans...... and grand kids..........
This Saturday we are planning on our first night in the new location with the three small grand kids......
I have been able to continue my work with my artists at Dawes Arboretum but next week is my last session....
I have created a colorful assemblage for the Fur Ball fund raiser this Saturday night....it has been my salvation.... Art Saves Lives.
Thank you all for the generous prayers and loving support ..........I will have to stop in from time to time........
I miss you all......... your loving support is beyond my tired words my body is struggling to find....
I am including some photos of our new collaboration.........Imagine and Live in Peace.


my first attempt for the Fur Ball auction this Saturday


 Make ART...and a glass of iced green tea........
 Shine on...puppy............Fur Balls save our hearts....they love us with zero judgement
 Maya Rose is now 14 years old..........she is such a beauty..........inside and out......




Sabrina is video taping this for her parents.......
 Hannah Marie is a giggle box.......


a few more colorful design details...........

 now what???????????
 I have chosen a beautiful blue....morning glory blue that reminds me of Mexico...............
 I do believe Miss Morgan like her bedroom..........and Lyndon Allen is making the bottom bunk his own............
 Mister Cole loves his special room for over night visits...........very colorful for my young artists..........
 Grandpa and Chance are trying to move the dresser up from the storage area downstairs.............not an easy feat..........
 sweet moments on the back steps with root beer Popsicles

 Cole is carefully examining the found rocks ...granite with quartz..........
 Morgan is searching for a stone with pink colors..........
 but Morgan loves these smooth specimens..........Lyndon has the largest collection of his own rock specimens.......
 the new kitchen is very small........but we can make it work......
 Ken caught me off guard..........
 Cole has his own art and miracle book on the black dresser.....
 the desk is now under an art work Erin Elizabeth made while in high school............the Velvet Ice Cream destination.......
 the colors of this room are very inviting.............cuddle time for reading late in the evening........he has rediscovered the Froggy puppet.......
 small but it will work for right now...........
 this small work is made by a wonderful quilt artist Edith Mitchell who I have know since 1990............
 the rooms are almost ready for an over night..........
this is the special Sassy Violet color Miss Morgan requested........and the quilt is one I made back in 1986 for Erin's twin bed.........full circle ..........

I do not know when I shall return......please know we are peddling as fast as we can.
Imagine and Live in Peace,  Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
