For my FAV

Well, as fate will have it, My FAV (Favorite Aunt Vallie) fell and broke her hip (the same
as the left hip Mom broke) a little over a week ago.  She lives in Red Bluff, CA, and was visiting with Jamie while at a craft show in Red Bluff.  I'm so very thankful Jamie was there as Aunt Vallie had been living alone most of the time! 

Anyway, she is now in rehab and we're praying for a quick recovery.  Here are a few photos of the quilt I'll be sending her way.  I'm hopeful as she continues through this recovery, this quilt will bring her comfort and warmth and that she'll know just how loved she is!!!

You will always be my FAV Aunt Vallie!  Always in my thoughts and prayers as  you work hard to get better!!!

Moving on

Okay, so it's been a LONG time since I've blogged anything, I know.  Most any readers know my Mom passed away on July 19th - my brother's birthday.  He has decided he has no problem sharing with Mom!!!  Anyway, busy times since then, and the real truth is I probably haven't been in the mood to SHARE anything since then.

Life goes on, however ( or I think someone said that once??).  I took my Brother 1500S in to get cleaned and serviced on Wednesday.  Received a call soon after that there was a problem with my machine and he didn't know if he could fix it or not without parts ($$$).  I received a call yesterday morning, machine was ready pick up and for the same $$ I had been quoted!  I am thankful!!

I brought it home and quilted this top and I must say, I'll have to get my machine cleaned and serviced - without the problems - more often as the quilting on this top is PERFECT!  No skipped stitches and the length of the stitches is almost even.  I love this Jacob's Ladder pattern - will follow it up with another one soon.

My goal is to keep myself busy (including some housework once in awhile!).
