"For I know the plans that I have for you,'declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11

A sweet friend sent me this photo yesterday and it brought a smile to my heart so I thought I'd share it here. A group of ladies from my old church used to meet once a month for two hours and make chemo quilts for children. We had a mass production of the quilts and they were never quilted but tied but we had such a blast making them. It is so interesting when you gather a group of five or more ladies to see all the opinions. There was only one other quilter in the group and as most quilters are, we had very definite opinions on colors etc. All in all, over one year I think we made around 4 dozen quilts, maybe more. This picture was taken right before we moved and one of the gals is now battling brain cancer. I miss these sweet friend and the times together, the silly laughter and producing something for gravely ill children. Makes me want to get in and get sewing.
I am a daughter of the King, saved by grace for 38 yrs. I am married to my best friend and beloved for 39 years. I was born and lived most of my life in Northern Calif. until moving to Colorado. We homeschooled our girls for years and I love encouraging my daughters and others in their homeschooling. Hubby and I are blessed to have two incredible daughters and sons-in-law and 11 grandkids. I love spending time with my family & our dog Hunter, friends, plus quilting whenever I can.
