Prayer Quilts

A while back I got involved with a group that makes prayer quilts for cancer patients (a lot of them being kids). Having lost my grandmother and both of my in-laws to cancer and being a cancer survivor, this is a project near and dear to my heart.

I really needed a "stress relief" day yesterday, so I sewed! Here is the quilt I came up with for a young man that likes bears~

Another last.......

Tonight before the last home softball game, the three seniors were honored.

(Lauren, Amy, Michelle)

Each received a scrapbook of their senior year in softball, a monogramed fleece blanket, a softball basket filled with candy, and a candy bouquet. Of course, none of the Mother's shed a tear--wrong! Now what will we do in the evenings since we won't be at the ballpark anymore?

Amy rules 1st base:

Third base belongs to Michelle:

Lauren doninates the mound:

Best wishes to each of you as you continue on life's journey. I will miss all thegreat times we had together!

Gotta Sew!

Just had to sew something even if it was a dreaded binding! Amazingly it calmed my nerves and another UFO is done! Nine patches came from swaps over the years....of course Mic gets this one (was there ever a doubt with it being orange??)

"The Wedding"

Today was Ryan's wedding...had a beautiful day! The occassional rain showers just made everything sparkle! All the endless hours of planning, etc. really paid off! Amber wanted "simple elegence" and I think it was pulled off! Had a lot of willing hands ready to help with the clean up, etc. Now that they are on their way to their hide-away for the weekend, I can kick up my feet and rest!!!!

Because I was kept busy most if the time, I didn't get a lot of pictures (will receive a disk later), but here are a few I managed to get.
