We lost our beloved boy on September 26.

He was brave and strong and pure of heart.

Please pray for us, and especially his twin, as we learn to live life with out him.

I'll be back to blogging....maybe someday.... but first I have to figure out how to go on with a shattered heart......

on hold

Life on Lavender Hill is on hold for a while.

My Jacob went for his annual angiogram and heart Cath on Monday and was immediately admitted to the icu.  After nearly seven years (December15) of great health with his transplanted heart, he is waiting to be re listed because of a type of rejection that causes coronary blockage.  We are shell shocked and scared to say the least.

So we are here at the best possible hospital... waiting......hoping... praying.....

How did the whole month of October get away from me?  I've been very busy with my needle and hook, as well as some remodeling/refreshing here on Lavender Hill - that's how!

I did the kitchen in 2001 and then a smaller update in 2007 when we did the huge addition.  Well, as is life, our styles and needs have changed, so I took advantage of a leak in one of the bathrooms upstairs to update the kitchen!   Lots of painting, plastering and re-arranging going on.  The sewing machine is whirring and so is my brain!

This one is not enjoying the commotion!

Uppies, Mama, the handy guy scares me!

Since the house was a mess and the handy guy was here ANYWAY....
I figured the living room, dining  room, gym and gym bathroom might want some love too.
Oh and while we're at it - 
the third floor twins suite needs attention too!

My poor hubby!

Since not much Fall-ification is getting done inside right now,
I thought I'd share some Fall Fun on the porch:

My boy has a cath on the 14th - this friday - to check for rejection...
So, hopefully I'll be back next week with fluffing updates and 
a relieved mommy's heart....

Fall Fluffing in the Front Yard

I've been so busy... hooking, stitching and fluffing!
Worked on the yard in the front yesterday:
