Dear Friends Please Pray

My mom called this morning with some very upsetting news. One of my uncles, the husband of my quilting mentor aunt, had a heart attack yesterday and was going through surgery. I haven't yet heard how it all came out but please send out many prayers for his successful speedy recovery. He was the last one I would expect to have heart problems, always walking and eating healthy. He has had his share of prostate cancer in the past but has come through that fine. Thanks for your prayers.

First Holiday of the "summer"

Hi Ladies and Gents!

We had a wonderful weekend for Memorial Day this year. It's so unlike our usual, chilly, rainy upstate NY. The sunshine never left and it waited until today to decide to rain. That's a good thing because we did need the rain, but to hold off thorough the weekend was awesome!! Hope everyone had a relaxing or weed pulling or swimming or picnic or sewing............................. or whatever you chose…
