Snow, They Say

Not much new on the stitching front - but I did finish my Postcards From Heaven.

  
All I need now is to find batting.  I really love this little quilt....can't wait to get it hanging up!

I'm still working on my "Live Simply" from Jenny, but I had distractions.

This fabric came in the mail from the lovely Fat Quarter Shop.  


It's called Hopelessly Romantic, by Deborah Edwards for Northcott Fabrics.  There may or may not be a wedding quilt happening with this....I have ideas I'm anxious to try.

And then there was this distraction.


Had to take mum shopping.  Could I ask you all to pray for her?  She seems to be losing her eyesight.  Her dr. is trying all kinds of things, and nothing's working.  I know diabetes can cause blindess - and as an artist, I think that would be so hard on her.  We really covet your prayers.

I'm working on the tutorial for Block 2 of Garden of Contentment - trying not to miss anything this time!  I had to edit my post for Block 1, I forgot to tell you one strand of embroidery floss for applique, two strands for embroidery.  It's there now, whew.  Thank goodness for Karen!!

I've also been working my way through all the blog posts piled up in my reader.  I'll read them all probably tomorrow and over the weekend - we're supposed to get 5-9" of snow tomorrow, and more over the weekend.  I don't plan on going ANYWHERE.  I may not even get dressed.....stitching in my fleecy pj's, sounds pretty good to me!

See you Monday for Block 2!!!
Love,
Allie

My heart and prayers for you and Mum. I know what you are going through. My mom had MD and it was so sad to watch as she gradually had to give up reading and her crafts. Hugs

I love how you set the postcards, that came out beautifully.
I am sorry to hear about your mom, that is hard and something I always worry about, we need our eyes to create. Of course prayers will be coming her way and hopefully they can find a solution to stop or slow down the process.

Prayers for Mum (and you!) Because of all that I love to do, losing my eyesight would be most traumatic. I'm in love with your romantic fabric Ooh la la! No more talk of snow, please. We're heading home from FLorida tomorrow, and I want Spring to be there when I arrive. LOL!

Love your postcards finish - REALLY love it. Not just like it. I'm so sorry about your mom's vision. I will pray that the doctors can find something and treat it.

Tanya said...

I love how your postcards quilt turned out! Seeing it brings back happy memories of making my own postcards that year... they are separate however and sewn onto cardstock so I'm not sure if they will ever get sewn together if they ever come back into my possession.

Father we thank you that Allie's mother came through her surgery so well last year. We ask that You keep Your healing hand on her and preserve her eyesight. She has used her artist talents for Your glory and asks to be able to enjoy Your beautiful world to the fullest. All this we pray in Jesus' name. Amen
