Yesterday I had some terrible news. I was waiting for news on Ken Cauthen's condition. Some of you may remember that my dear friend Marsha Cauthen, the owner of the on-line needlework store Criss Cross Row, had suffered a terrible shock when her husband Ken had a brain aneurysm in January 2007. Marsha had helped Ken throughout his ordeal and although he never regained his short term memory he was able to function reasonably well with Marsha's help. On his last hospital visit they were told that the aneurysm needed to be re-coiled as there was a space which, for safety's sake, needed to be filled. The operation was to take place on 22nd February and should only have taken 1 1/2 hours.
Yesterday I heard from Marsha that things had gone terribly wrong and that to enable the surgical team to get to a blood clot part of Ken's skull had to be removed. As I type he is in a drug induced coma and on life support. Many of you will know or have heard of Marsha. Please include them in your prayers today. They both need all the love and prayers that we can give.

Today, to try and keep myself busy, I completed my 'Love in Williamsburg' by Giulia Punti Antichi. I decided to leave of the lettering and finished it as a cube stand up. I am very pleased with the result which you can see below.

Your cube stand up is lovely.... and an unusual design :)
I am keeping up-to-date with Marsha´s report on CaringBridge. It sounds as though Ken has made a very small improvement this week.
