The teddy bear teacher is ill

Dear Friends

As you know, I’ve been complaining for a while that I don't feel quite  like myself.  Turns out I’m sick. 
If I was a teddy bear, the story would read like this:
Last week the doctor checked me over and found some lumps.   
On Monday 26 May I’m going to hospital where they will split my seams and pull out my stuffing to take a closer look. 
Then they will put me back together again.  I hope the doctor has been reading his lessons and practising ladder stitch!  
They will probably send me home after a week.
I’m going to be very tired and will need to sleep all winter. 
While I am hibernating, Tin Soldiers Studio will be closed.

In the real world, this is the plan:

NO SEW ALONG, no workshops and NO SHOPPING at Tin Soldiers until August.

Mail order and online classes will resume in June.

Until the second week of June I will be out of contact.  After that, if you need me, email, or send an SMS to 083 305 5954.  I will respond when I can.

I have written lessons for Project 52 up to Week 14.  They will post every Thursday.  If I don't feel better in a few weeks, we will continue where we left off when I am better.  
Other blog posts are also scheduled for the next three weeks so check back once in a while.

Thank you for all the get well wishes I have received already!



  1. Oh Megan, I wish I was close by so I could help you and hubby and the fur babies. I sit here writing and crying, I am so worried about you.

    I never ask questions and I won't now I just pray that this illness is not life threatening and although it may take time you will be completely healthy again.
