Hello Dear Stitching Family !

Hello Dear Stitching Family !

This is actually ( bill ) Bayliss posting today. Yes! , I'm Donna's 'extremely handsome'  Husband.
( with the obviously odd and self indulgent sense of humor )

I am posting for my beautiful donna as she is currently 'in-hospital' being treated for bacterial meningitis. Most of you have likely heard of this, and of it's seriousness. Needless to say we've seen a difficult few days, and still have a bit of tough road ahead. But, on a positive note, and after a somewhat 'concerning' night, today we were blessed with a slight improvement and a slightly lower White Blood Cell count. For the non med-heads, this is a sign the aggressive therapy she is on may be taking hold !   ................ needless to say, there's been quite a bit of praying going on.

The other very positive sign is Donna's concern regarding the Fun upcoming On-Line Stitch A Long,  ' HARBOR  HAVEN ' ,  ( which 'I' think will generate more national level awards by our stitchers than SERENITY  HARBOR ! ). SO ! ,...... donna wanted to be sure to tell you that ' She's feeling a bit better, and if the treatment continues to improve as it appears it 'may' be , ..God willing, ....  she should be able to get you all up to date with the 'Sneak Peeks', etc. etc., next week some time.
I believe donna is now planning on extending the sign up date until November 1st, and the START  DATE should remain unaffected.
SO ! , ......... ' In- Short '
Please excuse this unexpected ' RAIN  DELAY ' !
Donna will be back with you all as soon as her continued blessings restore her health
We both have an overwhelming feeling we are on the way to recovery, and that donna will be further blessed and that this issue will be " Stitched  Up ! " in a few more days.
Prayers for continued improvement are most certainly appreciated.
I ( bill ) will keep you up to date


  1. Sending thoughts and prayers for a full recovery.

  2. Lifting you both in prayer and may Jesus` healing be still touching you Donna. God Bless.

  3. Sending positive thoughts to Donna for a fast recovery.

  4. Thank you for sharing and continuing prayers for improving health each day blessings for strength for each of you🙏🏻🌻🌻

  5. Poor Donna! Wishing her a swift and complete recovery. :)

  6. Lifting Donna up in prayer that the treatment continues to wipe this illness from her body.

    Please tell Donna that she is in our prayers for a speedy recovery.

  8. Oh Bless Donna - do take care! Please please do not do anything until you are properly better - your health is more important than anything.

    This lovely stitching project isn't going anywhere - the stitchers aren't going anywhere - so put it all to one side until you are fully recovered. You'll have far more fun if you are well when it gets going!

    Best wishes for a steady recovery,

    Donna, hope you are feeling better! Your patterns are beautiful and we apprecicate them, but take time to heal.
