With Regret

I am so sorry to have to write this but there are some things that have come up that I need to attend to. So for a while I will not be writing. I do enjoying this and had just started meeting some very nice people. But for right now I have other things that need my attention. I do hope to be back soon.

I will try to find some time to stop by your blogs and read about what you are doing from time to time and leave you a comment. I will miss you all but will talk to you soon.

Until the next time. Carol

Quilt to finish by the end of the month

Sorry I haven't written anything for awhile. But I have been trying to get my sewing room organized and all my UFO'S together. I have done a pretty good start with all the other things life hands you to do.

My first goal is to finish the ovarian cancer quilt. It wont be to much longer. But I am going to also post this throw quilt into the arena for Kim's Big Quilting Adventure challenge.

I am not sure whats wrong with me but I sure can get alot of things started but I am having trouble finishing things. That is why I am so grateful for these ladies who are willing to help give us girls a little shove.

So head on over and check her out. She has give aways and also links to others who are giving away things. As well as alot of beautiful projects alot of talent ladies are finishing.

Until next time. Carol

I was picked

WOW! This never happens to me. But this morning it did.

I was looking around at some different blogs the other day and came across Kim's Big Quilting Adventure. I love quilting so I thought I would check her out. She was having a give away that day. She had a choice of 4 different groups of patterns.

All of us girls who sew have way to many patterns. So she came up with the clever idea to group together some of hers and share them with those who would just leave a comment and tell her they would like one of them and just tell her which one. Well to make a long story short I told her I would like #4. An apron pattern and a pineapple quilt pattern.

We were to check back this morning and see who was picked. You know it for #4 it was me! Yeah.

You need to go on over and check out her blog. She is so funny. Please be sure to check out her picture of herself. It's a real hoot.

Thank you Kim. This was a fun idea.

Char over at Someplace in Thyme ( tagged several of us bloggers the other day. She was tagged and had to tell 10 things about herself others may not know and then tag other bloggers. Then in return those of us who were tagged did the same.So here goes my 10.

1- Harriett a good friend of mine lost her battle with breast cancer in April of 2008 after fighting it for 10 years. One month before that I found out another long time friend Nancy was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer. Both of these women are good Christian women with such sweet attitudes. I praise God he put both of them in my life.

2-I was a painting contractor.

3-Nancy and I are heading for Saint Louise September 15 to go to Joyce Meyers Women's Convention. We are going by train and we are going to stay for 10 days and see some sites while we are there. We really want Judy to go also but her husband is sick right now and she can't leave him.

4-I would like to open a house to help women. Teach them about Christ. Help them get off welfare and help them learn to help themselves and others. Judy, Nancy and myself are always talking about this.

5-I love coffee with more milk than coffee.

6-If you saw my sewing room you would think it ate a quilt shop.(way to much stuff and not enough time.)

7-I love to shop thrift shops. Can't leave one without something. Most of the time to much somethings.

8- I love restaurant hamburgers. Not fast food ones. With the kids grown hubby and I eat out way to much. He is still amazed that I want a hamburger more than some of the nice dishes they have. Who knows where that comes from.

9-I do love McDonald's salads. When Judy and I go off (we are usually heading for a thrift store or a fabric store) and we don't want to spend our money on food instead of all the good finds. So we head for McDonald's.

10-I am collecting teapots for a Christmas tree I want to decorate for Christmas this year.

Now for who I am tagging:

Jill at Bits & Tidbits from Jillzwhimzy

Teriann at Kitty Kitty Designs

Debbie at All in my Cottage

Until next time Carol

Aug. Project For Charming Girls Quilt Club

I want to thank Kelly for hosting this club so we charming girls can put to rest some of our UFO's. (unfinished objects) I hope you will click on the button on my side bar to get to her blog, you will see lots of different and beautiful quilts the other ladies are finishing.

I showed this back on May the 14th.(yes I know that was 2 1/2 months ago.) That is why we need help with our UFO's. Thanks again Kelly for the push.

September is Ovarian Cancer month. I truly want this finished and given to them by September. I need to baste it together then quilt it and put on the binding. I do hope you ladies will cheer me on so I will get it done.

Teal is the color for ovarian cancer so I decided to go with several different teal fabrics. I used a tone on tone white for the background of the embroidery squares. I used a damask pattern in teal for the embroidery there is one that is of a damask peacock. As a reminder that the Good Lord made all of us women beautiful and we should support each other.

I hope you will check back and see the progress I am making. Good luck to all of you who are playing along this month.

Thank you for dropping by, please do often.Until next time. Carol

Enfolded In His Love

The love of God surrounds us

Like the air we breath around us__

As near as a heartbeat, as close as a prayer,

And whenever we need Him,

He'll always be there!

Thank you for stopping by. Until next time. Carol
