I have been quilting for abour 4 years but my teacher at 43 had a heart attack and died. Shocking to all of us but she got a small group hooked on quilting - she tought us so much in such a short time. Now I do quilts for Relay for life , my grand children and freinds. I have found I am not a scrappy quilter, would rather have a kit or buy fabric. Not a hobby more of an obsession... Best to you
Thanks again Sharon! The continued prayer is what we truly need right now, to get Sarah's vision back so she can lead a normal life. She is only 27 and has so much of life ahead of her yet. She will just be celebrating her first wedding anniversary in May. She is taking it all in stride though. Much better than I am I think! God has seen us through so much already and I know He isn't through working in her life just yet!
Sharon, Just wanted to say thank you for the thoughts and prayers for my daughter Sarah! I have posted updated information and wanted to let you know I appreciated the support during such a difficult time!
Thank you for asking to be my friend. I believe God has joined us together as prayer warriors on Sarah's behalf. I too just left a prayer on the blog, I believe every word the Holy Spirit gave to you and to me. I am believing that down the road we are going to be lifting up praises to His Holy Name for what He is about to do in this families life. To Him be all the Glory!!!!!!! Linda
Sharon I just want to be in agreement with everything you said to Mary about her daughter. I come together with you as your sister-in-Christ to lift up her daughter for health and healing and for strength during this difficult season in their lives. I stand with you dear sister because our hearts are one for this precious woman and the healing of her daughter. In Christ, Linda Robertson

Hi Sharon. Nah...I'm used to hanging out with quilters and crafters. I've gone along on many "trends" but have resisted quilting for the most part. Maybe in my next decade. I used to sew clothes but gave up when nothing seemed to be right after all that work.
For now, I mostly read in my spare time, but am also trying to teach myself to crochet. And make myself clean my house. Not good at that, either.
Thank you. As a surprise my two daughters flew down to Florida from Michigan to surprise me for my birthday. I was totally surprised. They got here Saturday and are leaving tomorrow. We are having a wonderful weekend. My husband has known about the surprise for a year and kept the secret. Have a good day.
I thought I sent you a message, but I don't see it but then I have very bad eyesight. And that's not a joke. I lived in B'ham for nine years. Don't know if you are close to there or not. Loved the area. Thanks for the comment and prayers. Betty in TN
Sharon: Hopefully I will not "break" the new machine as I "break" it in (sorry, I have a very bad punny sense of humor). I did end up doing a lot of straight line sewing while working the excess oil off the top thread. I spent part of Saturday playing, as my DH wanted to see what the new machine can do. And since he was going to climb a flight of stairs (which is a strenuous task for him since he had his stroke a few years ago), I figured I had better be able to show him a little bit what the new machine can do. He was impressed. Said if one of his co-workers saw it, he might want one (this co-worker is an accomplished sewer, even if he prefers automotive/computer stuff). He wants me to program his name into the alphabet function and run him a sample so he can take it to work on Monday and show it off.
Thank you Sharon, for the birthday wishes. Of course, I have spent time in the sewing room. Have a couple projects I am working on,, a big girl quilt for our granddaughter, she will be 2 in May. May not get it by then, but its in the works. Also in the works is a quilt from a project that was started quite awhile ago. It was a 7 1/2 inch block, done in blues & whites., and I am making it into a 15 inch, block will be surrounded by a red tone on tone, white tone on tone, and a touch of blue. Finished quilt is approx 65 x 80,, just finished a top just reverse of this one,,, so they will go to 2 of my granddaughters for Christmas.
Dinner is on my husband tonight,, I try not to cook on my birthday.
Thanks again. Lynne
Thanks Sharon for your birthday greetings! I see that you live in the southern state of Alabama so that is a very long way from where I live in Southern Ontario just five miles from the northern shore of Lake Erie. I have just come back from the quilt shop where I teach, and usually receive a 15% discount, but for teachers and customers alike, we get a discount of one-half our age on our birthday! Sure couldn't miss that so went with list in hand and of course spent more money than I planned! Now we are off to have a family lunch with sisters and my Dad who lives in a long-term care home, then I will be taken out to dinner tonight - how much better could a birthday be??? Thanks again and a big hug to you, KLB
Shorts and A/C weather, though they say it should change to go down into the 70's in the next couple of days.
It sounds like you do have some potential for more grandkids. All of our kids said they were done, though I had been hoping for at least one more. So I was thrilled to hear that one more would be added to our dd's family. (They were too...)
It looks like a belated birthday greeting is in order. Happy belated Birthday! Have fun on Saturday!
