August Block for Dena in the Sew Fun Bee

This is the third one I've seen. Each person is doing a different color where the green is. Going to make a wonderful quilt for a wonderful person- just in time for Christmas.

Did someone say "APPLES"?

 We got to go to Jenks Farm (Susan's house) and fill our baskets with apples from her trees.
 Golden Delicious, Granny Smith and Thompson's seedless grapes
 Made two batches of apple muffins to freeze and have the makings for apple sauce in the crockpot. The house smells A-mazing!
I know what I will be doing for the next few weekends!

Praise God

 From whom all blessings flow, Praise Him all creatures here below, Praise Him all ye heavenly hosts. Praise the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. As Gabby Douglas said at the Olympics " I give all the glory to God and he reigns his blessings down on me" Love that!
This is what I wake up to (picture above)
 I am thankful for the beautiful sunsets too.
 Took time last night to look at God's artwork in the skies
Thankful He gave me this man too.

Thankful that my Dad's numbers are up, that his mouth and throat sores are healing, that he can swallow and talk again and eat. Thankful that he has had my Dad in his hands the whole time.
Thankful for all of you and your prayers and well wishes.
Thank you.

Added more stars to Dena's Quilt top

Look At My Quilt!!!! I'm so excited!!

Enjoying my Day off

 Finished another quilt. This one is called Dotty Owl.
 Full view. I think this one may go in the shop. Still thinking.
 Finished a bee block and it made me want to make one of these for myself. I have a bunch of strip scraps from a friend and this would be the perfect project.
Put together this quilt top today too. I just need to back, sandwich, quilt and bind this one.  We had a good weekend. Relaxing. Everyone got along. In case you couldn't tell I got to quilt ALOT.

Can I ask for prayers for my Dad? I really believe in the power of prayer and know that God is so good to us. Dad is experiencing some mouth and throat sores from the chemo and it is painful. Could you please pray for his continued healing and comfort? Thank you.

It's been a while......

 This little quilt is for Baby Owen. He was born really early, like 27 weeks old early and he is such a little fighter and growing like he should. His mommy is one of the teachers at the school I work at. Say a prayer for Owen. He is going to be great.
 Another boy quilt that I am working on today. I got in the mood for little boy quilts and had this cute owl fabric that I bought when I was visiting my mom last year. Had to put it to use.
 Pears from Gloria's tree. Gloria is the Principal's secretary that I work with and is already chosen family.
 Nana's Apple Cake recipe made with the pears above. So yummy.
 Can you say Kitty Dog? That is what Charlie is. Someone (who shall remained un-named) (RILEY) thought it would be cute to show Charlie how to climb up into the pantry.  Charlie being a smart, if not weird, dog had no problem learning this and now we can't keep him out of it as he searches for "salty crunchy"
And finally just because they are MY BOYZ.
