Finished Sarah's quilt...
the other day and it was a good feeling. I had to order more thread and the guys at King's Men Quilting Supply came through for me. It is a very pretty quilt to begin with, so I hope that the quilting I did on it doesn't take away from that. My mom wanted to see another picture of it- I see another log cabin in her future. The quilt is so large (108"x108") that I couldn't lay it out to show all of it. But you get the idea, eh? Sarah called me when I got to work, yesterday, to tell me that her grandmother had suffered a stroke and wasn't expected to recover. She is on her way to Wisconsin. I am concerned for her as we have had some pretty bad road weather, but they do have 4x drive. I know she would appreciate everyone's thoughts and prayers. She told me to hold onto her Xmas box as she is hoping she can persuade her DH to stop back by this way on their drive home... With all the small peicing in that quilt and three cones of thread, it weighs alot, so it would be nice to hand it over in person- Stacy is always saying that the quilts made, today, aren't as heavy as they used to be... well, this one, with cotton batting, might be a hit with him.

Quilt looks beautiful Nines, and keeping Sarah and her family in my thoughts and prayers is no problem. We are definitely a winter wonderland up this way (I'm in North Western WI), they are plowing and salting like crazy, but we've got a nasty wind blowing the snow. Maybe it'll be mostly past before they hit WI. Just hope it doesn't warm up too much and rain.

Nines, the quilting is beautiful. I can only imagine what it feels like to do that kind of work. (In truth, I've never even seen a longarm machine in person. They fascinate me.)

We'll hold Sarah and her family in our hearts and in our prayers. Please give her our love.

Aloha,

The quilting is gorgeous, Nines! And so is the quilt.

Will keep Sarah and her family in my prayers.

I hope you get to hand over such a beautiful quilt to her in person. Would be nice to see her, even if her reason for travelling is sad.

Well, I am soooooo very behind with my blogging, Nines. But I'm trying to be a good girl and not get ahead of myself. I want you to know that I had to go way back into your archives to get up-do-date.... Girl, do you sleep? ;-)

This quilt of *yours and Sarah's* is to-die-for!!! All of the pondering, Sunkist spewing, and praying has certainly paid off. GORGEOUS!!!
