    Default Sunday Morning - A wee bit cooler



    Good Morning Ladies
    Slept like a rock last night and woke up looking as if I have been living under one. Good grief, how can that man stand even looking at me with a straight face when he looks at me. He must practice that smile. And btw, no flashes last night. yee haw. I very very and I mean very rarely have any. They generallly leave as quickly as they come and etc. I am trying to think what was the stresser for me on Friday. It was a good day; no one really doing anything out of the ordinary, so it must have been the full moon. hehehe.
    Zenkitty, you are so very correct in changing doctors. Attitude and faith have a whole lot to do with our healing. We all deserve respect and dignity not to mention a soft place to land when we hear hard news.

    So, what's on the agenda for the day? After church we will have a nice dinner with Mom and then perhaps if the wind doesn't blow us away, visit with some friends we haven't been able to get with since my Dad passed away. So much bad weather this winter, it is lucky we even remember anyone. Lucious and I aren't the most social butterflies but we do enjoy company of a few really good friends. Don't know where I would be without these "sisters" and their dear men.

    Will more than likely be back this evening sometime. Enjoy your day, sweeties

    Good morning everyone!

    It's the Small Things. That was our sermon this morning. Based upon the 5 loaves of bread that was turned into many to feed the 5,000. It's waking up to the sun here this morning before we are to get snow and sleet later tonight. It's the light touch of a husband telling you it will be alright. It's the smile from the husband when he sees you first thing in the morning. It's the sudden laughter of a child you happen to catch. It's that one little bird that you watch float in the sky on the winds on a summer day. It's the first flowers that pop their heads up after a long, dreary winter. It's the text from a grown child just to say "I love you". It's a surprise phone call from a friend or a PM to say "I'm thinking of you". It's coming on here to share in your love of your quilting and friendship.

    What Small Thing are you thankful for today?

    Hugs,

    Good morning all! Had a busier day than I planned for yesterday, isn't that the way it usuallly goes?
    Youngest DD's friend needed ruffles 'pinned' up on a formal dress to shorten it, I agreed to look at it, and that's what we did, but the underlayer needed shortened too, so it was a much more detailed alteration than thought and more than I know how to do, but we mustered through and it's done.
    It's a gorgeous dress with 2 layers of very stiff tulle, so there was no way it was fitting under the presser foot, so everything I did is hand stitched.
    Then I started adding sashings to the friendship braid quilt and noticed that the braids weren't matching at the top. I just about panicked. I sent a message to Jill (jrchapman)and she has helped me figure it out. I have to trim a bit more off the sections, but the best news is it will work out!
    Also, a guy at (old) work has ordered a quilt for his son from the Hooty Hoot, I have 2 charm packs of it, but needed more for a twin size--I tried to talk him into a cuddle size, but no go. MSQC is out of the fabric and Jenny checked with the manufacturer for me and it's out of production! More panicking! But, I found it on ebay and wonder of wonders I won the auctions and I should receive from 1 seller early this week, and the other seller later in the week. I have till June to get it done, but with the new job, I want to get started ASAP.
    Huge THANKS!! to Jill and Jenny for helping me get through some tough patches in my quilting world!!
    I was so tired when I found my mistake on the friendship braid, I was ready to give up quilting and so frustrated with myself. I figured I was going to have alot of table runners instead of a quilt!
    Hope everybody has a great day!

    WOW! How can someone watch that and not have tears in their eyes? I think this is going to stick with me for a long time. There are so many out there with hurts, wants, needs that I need to start paying more attention as to what can I do?

    Thank You Blondie for that video. I agree with Trish, I need to pay more attention to what others need. I had tears in my eyes too, and I would love to have something that gave me insight as to their needs and troubles in their lives.

    WOW - that clip was powerful!

    Paula - My prayers are with you and glad that you are having a good day.
    Blondie - hope you have a joyful visit with your friends and we are very thankful for hubbies that love us in the morning when we are less than beautiful!
    Lola - I'm sure that dress is beautiful with all of your hand stitching - what a great gift!

    I am very thankful for a friend that I will meet at church - we have been friends for many years and she is on chemo so misses church sometimes - today is a good day and we will enjoy sitting next to each other again!

    Hope everyone has joy!
    Linda

    Blondie, that video was a real gift - thank you.

    My boss at work, whom I dearly love, taught me to remember that everyone has a story, and remembering that really did change my life and how I try to live it. I'm not 100%, but I really do try to be a good part of other people's day.
