IT'S MY TURN!
Please Note: I am leaving up my Table Topper Post till Tuesday when I will be A Guest Poster on SEW WE QUILT with some cool Kitchen stuff!
Prayer Request Sunday (PRS) is at the bottom of this post and will return as the Main Feature Next Week!
You know I couldn't make a Table Topper without involving one or more of my FIVE Grandpeeps!
Geez, you'd think I'd be tired of the little buggers by now
I got this idea from where else but my new favorite fun place
Embroider your Children/Grandchildren's Art work!!!!!
(Seriously, if you haven't begun *pinning* you are missing SO MUCH!)
MY Granddaughter drew me a picture and I simply traced it onto fabric. I then embroidered the picture exactly line for line, letter for letter, as she drew it! I'm in love and so is her mama but I won't give her this one!
Hmm??? sounds like some good gift ideas for the future!!??
The artistic drawings of a precious little 7 yr. old girl.
Then I thought I would show you some more "works in progress" for the Table Topper
Here is an orphan block that I actually use beside my sewing machine.
Doesn't it look all dressed up in it's little hanger?
Quilting is like keeping a Journal with all it's sentimental value.
Here is a series of pictures with 3 of the last blocks my mother pieced. She and I took a class together and due to her increasingly poor vision from macular degeneration, I ended up doing much of the 3 blocks myself. I would not, however, trade the wonderful time spent with my crazy precious little mama.
BTW, I have a story to tell from my mother's lips to your ears in honor of
Cinco de Mayo, May 5th.
So stay tuned for a real winner of a story!
These are the other tow blocks that I plan to incorporate into a table runner.
LOVELY AREN'T THEY?
I took a Dollar store Hankie and Embroidered the letter /M/
Where did my mini quilt go?
it's been eaten by one of the
cousin to the Blue Men!
Oh no!! Blue Puppy is trapped!
AAHHH! GOTCHA!! The culprit is found.
It's what happens when little boys play with their Grandmama's quilty "stuff"
I wish you could HEAR the sneaky little giggle that goes long with this picture.

PRAYER REQUEST SUNDAY
For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future" Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
We have TWO wonderful Praise Reports this week
BABY MAX HAD A BIG WELCOME HOME PARTY FOR FAMILY AND FRIENDS NOT ONLY TO CELEBRATE THE MIRACLE RECOVERY OF BABY MAX BUT TO THANK ALL THE PRAYER WARRIORS. HE CAME HOME THE SUNDAY BEFORE PALM SUNDAY! THANKS TO PATRICIA FOR GIVING US THAT WONDERFUL REPORT, AFTER ALL, BABY MAX STARTED THIS WHOLE PRAYER REQUEST SUNDAY!
Julie reports her Grandson Ben who is 10 and having unexplained seizures has been through a battery of tests and all the results conclude that the seizure was a one time occurrence and nothing can be found that would have caused the seizure. His only restriction is from driving...and since he's only 10 that won't be a problem! LOL!! Thanks Julie for injecting some humor to a somber subject. You're my kind of people!
I want to shout with Praise for an answered prayer in my life. I did not share it with you because it all happened so fast and typing it would have made it seem too real.. Forgive me...BUT...My second Mammogram came back free and clear!! I had gone in for my routine mammogram on March 27th. I never gave it a second thought because I've NEVER been called back in over 19 yrs. NO BIG DEAL!! Fast forward to the next week and I'm helping a friend put her quilt together in the church fellowship hall using the big tables when I get a call on my cell phone. The little technician told me my mammogram had cause for concern and the radiologist needed me to come in ASAP and have more tests run. I felt like I had been kicked in the stomach! My friend and I stopped and prayed right then and there. I was determined to go on with my day but I will tell you wasn't easy. I went in that Thursday for more "flatten and squish" pics under the influence of 1mg. Xanax. That stuff is like drinking a bottle of Boones Farm because I barely remember the Dr. telling me everything was OK>!! Thank goodness my husband was with me and doing the driving!! I just can't take that stuff(remember my episode flying to NC under the influence of Xanax??) The workers in the Charlotte Airport remember hauling some short fluffy lady to her gate because "she wasn't feeling so well". So...I'm Good To GO!! Whoop Whoop!!
Love to you all!!
