A Quick Post

I'll have to make this quick. We haven't got a new monitor yet, but the old one will come on for a few minutes; then it goes out!

I can't show any pics, but I have finished Belle and also finished a horse for Rachel at Love Quilts. The horse really looks good, and I really loved doing it! It went very quickly! I have started another charity square. It's 2 puppies - "Puppy Love" from one of the Precious Moments books. It's going pretty quickly, too.

My mom had the cat scan (I guess that's how you spell it! lol). The doctor was surprised because he couldn't find anything wrong with her aorta artery - the twist was gone! God still does miracles!! The dr. said her heart looked great and she's doing better than she has in years! I had prayed that God would not take another family member from me after losing 2 so recently, and He answered my prayer!

All of us here at the house are doing fine! I subbed 2 days last week, but one was an aide job and I get paid very little for that. I'll tell the story of how I ended up doing the aide job later. It's a long story!!

Mary Ann, I'm disappointed that I didn't win that Summer Sampler, but I'm very happy for the girls who won your contest!! lol That was so generous of you!! I can't part with any of my stash, because my tastes change so and I'm afraid I will want to do a pattern later! I'm awfully selfish when it comes to my cs stash!! lol

Better go! Have a day full of happy moments, and my God bless you!

Vikki!! It's been forever!!

I've had a lovely time looking through all the projects that have been keeping you busy. You're such a consistent stitcher, I wish some of it would rub off onto me, lol

Not such great news about your DD and her deadbeat friend, but I'm glad to hear it's mostly behind her now. I used to be drawn to the needy/users in my youth too...thankfully that's all behind me now and I found the treasure that I married. Hope it's all good stuff around the corner for you and your DD now.

Great to hear your mum is thriving too :D

Fantastic to 'see' you again!
