Much better...

July 7, 2012

Thank you all for the prayers and get well wishes. I am much better today. =) 

While I was down and out, a package came in the mail. I participated in my first ever swap a couple of months ago. It was a rainbow charm swap. They had me at rainbow. 

But these lovelies need to be put away for now. I have a dress to finish for a certain beautiful girl who is turning 5! How did that happen?? 

For those who are new friends, Brooklyn is a story. I'll make it short. Brooklyn is the daughter of my oldest son. He and his then girlfriend, decided to place Brooklyn up for adoption. Brooklyn's parents, Jen and Steve, wanted an open adoption, so we get to see her as often as we can. They are raising her to love Jesus and that makes my heart soar with joy....As you can see, Brooklyn has a bit of a dramatic flair. Many of her birth dad's pictures have him mugging the camera in the same way. I find that so funny...

Along with the dress to finish before we go see Brooklyn in a few weeks, I am participating in the Bowls With Borders Blog Hop coming up in August. I want to get that project started...AND, on the 3rd Thursday this month (July 19th) we will be having our first show and share of our Farmer's Wife quilts blocks! 

I am grateful that I get to do these fun things. I am so very blessed...


  1. So glad you woke up feeling better! That's always a good start to the day. Brooklyn looks adorable, and yes, I can see the drama in that pose! LOL!

  2. I'm so glad you are feeling better.
    One of the fun things about adoption is that we can see some surprising things that we might have been more likely to attribute to nurture than genetics. I'm so glad you get to see your granddaughter--makes both your lives richer, I'm sure.

  3. Nothing like a package in the mail to help you feel better!!! Love the fabrics!! How much fun to enjoy your granddaughter...and so glad you're feeling better.


  4. Glad you are feeling better!! glad you can be part of your granddaughter's life. She is a darling. Have fun with that dress! And enjoy that visit! Praise the Lord!
