What a struggle this year has been ... I'm either up with high energy, or down and sleeping 15-18 hours a day... it's all to do with my health. I HAVE been sewing ... working on a Quilts Of Valor quilt, and also a surprise for someone I love and will soon need a hug ... more to come on that later. Also, I decided to join a Relay For Life team, to help fundraising here in Christian County. My AWESOME friends have jumped in to help me in the fundraising, and have pledged donations to support the cause :) My walk is June 7th at Nixa Jr High. Wish me luck! Also, along with that, my quilty friend Karen and I decided we wanted to raise bigger funds for Relay... so we are combining our efforts to put together a quilt to raffle. The design is all laid out, it will be applique (no, not by hand, but fusible), and it's given me and Jenny a chance to really work on an awesome project. Who's Jenny? She's my awesome Janome 6600 :)
What a DREAM Jenny is. She is a delight as well as a work horse! On the blocks for Relay quilt, I used the font function, and wrote on each square. I will post a pic as it gets more together.
Karen has done her part on the blocks ... now to finish mine up, then it goes back to Karen for the quilting. Then I will do the binding, and HOPEFULLY it will be ready to start the raffle by Nixa Sucker Days, which is May 18th. We will be having a Relay booth selling nachos to help raise funds for the Relay walk, and we will also have the quilt there to kick off the raffle! OK ... broke the ice. Hopefully I can get my procrastination under control and keep posting on a more regular basis. So what are YOU up to this week? Quilty fun? Enjoying the sunshine? Whatever it is, I wish you many of our Good Lord's good blessings ... till next time <3 font="">3>
I LOVE being a G'ma... to my most Precious gift from the Lord! I live in the country where the wildflowers and wildberries grow in God's beautiful creation we call the Ozarks ! I've been married to my honey for 34 years...Life is good! (And time SURE flies)! I am blessed to have a wonderful family that God has saved, a loving husband who is the most patient man on earth, a daughter who still loves me even through the turmoil of our life before Christ, a son-in-law that treats her good and God is teaching me to love, and a grand daughter who is my heart. GOD IS GOOD, and He's good ALL THE TIME !
I love quilting, and don't sew as much as I'd like to, but will be working this year on prioritizing my time better and not allowing myself to be "sucked in" to pleasing others ... try to accomplish some projects I enjoy doing !
