What a way to celebrate!


My daughter celebrated her birthday flying over the ocean.  She is currently in Tazmania and will be traveling throughout Australia.

Before the fall

 Before my fall and wrist injury, I was working on these quilt tops for my nephews little girls for Christmas..  Thankfully my sister-in-love came to the rescue and quilted them for me on her mid arm.  I really appreciated her taking the time to finish these quilts for me.



 I hope each one of you enjoyed a very happy Christmas.  Ours was pretty quiet.  I was dreading the 26th, as that was when I was to get my staples out.  And let me tell you, it was NO picnic.  I had over 30 staples in three incision sites. Let's just say it was like being stung by a bee or wasp over and over.  Still have lots of tenderness and discomfort. And physical therapy to try to get the movement back in my fingers and hand.

I want to say THANK YOU to all of you who expressed concern and sent words of encouragement and cards after I broke my right wrist.  It is a pretty bad break and I have a long way to go for a full recovery (2 plates and 15 screws are holding things in place).  I've been a little low with all this happening right at the holidays, but I am trusting in God to restore my hand so that I can start quilting again.

And a special THANK YOU to three of my blogging buddies who sent me this beautiful bouquet of flowers with their get well wishes.

Thank You
and Barb
You gals are the best!

Merry Christmas


Christmas has a beautiful way
of coming into our world
and reminding us
that God still hears,
still loves,
still sends His best
to His people

Merry Christmas
