Mom is in the ICU for the second day. She's got congestive heart failure. My sister is flying up again from outside Atlanta Monday after two very extensive trips this past month. Mom has been slowly failing since her bout with shingles starting the week before Thanksgiving. Please pray for her...

I'm sitting in a cool breeze with the window cracked opened listening to the birds sing. I've been enjoying reading blogs and such while getting better. I was reading something Victoria said and I put it together with something Bonnie Hunter told us at the workshop. That light bulb went off over my head. Yes I did buy someone elses scraps to learn how to play, but what I didn't do was manage them!!! I managed them to different sizes squares and bricks that Bonnie suggests and then bagged them. The scraps are now truely scraps. I'm going to be working on the dots, stripes, and plaids challenge Sunday. I realized I don't have any plaids and I don't have any reproductions. I have a little of everything else so I might pick up some fat quarters to put into my China box. I also have almost not solids. I love color and florals so much that I'll have to deal with that also.

Doctor visit

Well the foot is bruised big time. I have stitches for another week. The swelling in not as bad as the doctor said it could be. It already looks good to me and I can bend my toe down which I haven't been able to do for a long time. So I'm continuing to keep foot up and ice on it.

Toosday fun

It started with flowers being delivered from work and ended with ice cream. What could be better? I had a dinner and cake sent over after the flowers came. My sister came to visit as she is headed back to Georgia in the morning. Mom's update is that she is failing more every day. We know she'll have her medicines to make her comfortable and they'll encourage her to get out and about while she still can. While Susan was visiting my boss John came to check on me with his beautiful daughter Sarah. They brought me a card from work and wanted to make sure everything was going OK which it is. Not looking forward to Wednesday as I'm to get my stitches out if everything is healing OK. The stitches are what I feel right now. Everyone left and I got to watch NCIS and NCIS LA which is OK, but I really like NCIS best now the 24 is done. Mike came home from karate and fed me ice cream. All in all a GREAT TOOSDAY!

You can be a winner!

Go to this blog and try to win some great patterns. If I wasn't on drugs I'd try to do some pictures, but that's not happening with my pain killer. Have a great day all.

Vote for my friends story

This is for my friend Victoria. She has a friend Solange that is a writer and a single young Mother. I'm excited to support any single Mom as I was one for 16 years before God placed a wonderful man in my life. She is a writer and entered into a contest and is now a finalist. Go look and have a read and vote for her and pass along somehow on your blog would be great. She's in second place now...

If you don't have the time, I understand... But please have a look...before you delete...

Thank you,

Hope you all are well!

Bonnie K Hunter in Lexington!

Here she is! Bonnie K Hunter in Lexington Virginia
Our quilt guild had Bonnie for a trunk show Friday night and Saturday they were having a workshop. I didn't have enough time to take the workshop, but the sample was beautiful. This is one from her trunk show. I wish I had more to show, but that women is a dynamo and a lot of my shots came out fuzzy. I'm learning the with my new camera.
