    Toni, you were mentioned fondly at the retreat this year. Several talked about you bringing your guitar and singing with Jenny.

    I saw on Spoonflower they carry minky. When they first started you only had a couple of choices. They have grown so much.

    Some of those are perfect. I like the wolf head panels with the pink flowers. Really different.

    Thank you Bella!!!! That was so nice of you. Emily is in what we call limbo. She does have her ANC up to 1,100 and her platelets are 54,000. Nowhere where they should be but better than she was. One week she loses, the next time she goes up, then back down. She's not good enough to go to gym or play her soccer but better than she was. We've decided God is healing her very, very, very slowly. If thats the case, we'll take it. We just keep praying and claiming a healing, watching and waiting.
    Thanks for keeping her in your thoughts and prayers. Love you, Jan
  3. Isn't that avatar beautiful? I found the little poem in my signature line and just had to find an avatar to go with it - and I did . . . googled and there she was. I have no idea who she is but think she's wonderful. I should make my grandmother's photo into an avatar. Thanks for the idea!!

    Hi darlin Megan! for the quilt, I love putting prints on the back. Or if it's plain, some strip of what is on the front. Not that I have made that much stuff. I have the tops, just haven't finished them. I have been down more than up lately.
    Em is in Limbo. I'll write later. Thank you for your prayers. How are you? How is your Dad doing?
    Love you Sweetie. I'll get back to you. Praying for you and yours. Hugs, Jan
  5. Please let me know if you are in need of additional blocks to make this project come together. Also, if you find you need anything else just let me know.

    Yes, since Atlanta I've been having migraines 5+ a week. Can't break the cycle, even with morphine shots. Been in bed with high doses of percocet for the last 5 days, all it's doing is making me hug the porcelain t. Dropping weight, that's about it.

    Last thing I sewed was the top and back for Lily's quilt, I need to quilt it but I can't sit up without getting sick. Hoping this passes soon.

    Sorry to miss out on this quilt making.

    Huggers, Ruby
