Postcards From Heaven, Block 12, December....

It's here - the final block in our year-long journey.  What a blessing this has been to me, and I hope for you also!  Jenny always has the best ideas.

It's been an amazing journey, as well - at least for me.  I think I told you before that I had these blocks done by last December...and every month, as they came up, they were always applicable to what was going on with my family and me.  Some more so than others!  

My prayer this month is that if you haven't opened that door to Jesus, you soon will.....that you will taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. Psalms 34:8

The pattern is available free from my craftsy shop, just click here:

Jenny's exquisite version:

You'll have to go to her blog to see the gorgeousness of what she made with it!  Jenny of Elefantz

I do hope you've enjoyed this journey with us.  It's been a very busy year for me, and sometimes the only project I got done all month was my postcard, but that was enough.  I can't wait to get all my postcards put together into a quilt - I'll share that with you too!  And hopefully tomorrow, I'll be able to share a finish with you - 

I actually had my sewing machine out today!!!!!!!  Can you believe it!!!!

See you soon, precious friends - be blessed.

First Week

Hello my friends - I've missed you!  We've had our first full week of mum at home, she was ever so glad to get here.

She's constantly freezing, even when everyone else is warm.  Her doctor thinks it's her thyroid, so he's checking things out.  Yes that's a roll of toilet paper next to her - we ran out of kleenex, lol.  Keepin' it real.

She's doing very well, except for anxiety.  She's been breathing so badly for so long, because of the mitral valve, and is having a hard time adjusting to the fact that she can now breathe easily!  She refuses to lay down flat, and sleeps in the recliner.  

We laughed the other day - told her I thought that getting her here would be the easy part, we'd sit around and drink tea and read and I could stitch.  Turns out, driving to the hospital and nursing home every day was the easy part!

Every day there's someone coming in, and usually multiple someones.  PT, OT, nursing, social workers, you name it.  And I'm constantly washing something  - dishes, laundry, counters, floors, bathrooms.  Not a lot of time to stitch!

I have started a new Christmas design.

Don't think it'll be ready for Christmas, though.  I was hoping to make it for my cousin, sigh.

Autumn is just about over, it's been absolutely splendid.

That's my view across the street.  It's been unseasonably warm, for which we're profoundly grateful, but I woke this morning to frost.  Most of the leaves are gone.  The bucks in the back meadow are butting heads, the squirrels are frantically burying things, and I think one of them has taken up residence in our living room wall.  Good times.

Well that's all from me, I've been hoping to get around to your blogs and try to catch up, but my computer is hardly on.  I've been full on flat out and wow, Christmas is coming - we're having Thanksgiving here, and celebrating two birthdays that fall on that day as well!  This year has gone by in a blink.

Keep well my friends, I miss you so much!!!!!
