The past couple of weeks have been kind of a blur with alot going on. I have been hand piecing, doing some applique, crocheting and working on a memory t shirt for a co-worker who lost her son this last spring to diabetes.
Actually, this t shirt quilt has taken up most of my thoughts as it stirs so many feelings looking at the clothing and the muslin pieces family and friends wrote messages on. Not sure that I'll show a picture of it as it is such a personal treasure for this family. I was fortunate to have another nurse come and sew on it with me last week. It was a good thing to share.
In the hand piecing category, I finished block #8 for the Psalms quilt. This is a block called "David and Goliath" for Psalm 27. "One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the day of my life...For in the day of trouble He will keep me safe in His dwelling; He will hide me in the shelter of His tabernacle and set me high upon a rock."
Just this morning, I got an email from SewCalGal giving me the news that I had won a prize in the Pet Parade contest. I won a book from Kay MacKenzie
So not only did I get to show off pictures of my animals and see adorable pictures of other quilters animals...I enjoyed receiving fun emails from other bloggers and readers....and got a prize too! I am one luckypup!
SewCalGal Darlene, mentioned animal rescue as many of the photos were of adopted 'used' animals. My own group of fur creatures have come from assorted pasts and have made my life richer. So I put a button up top on my blog for a site where I just click a tab each day to generate donation of food for animals in shelters. I have also found some fun things to purchase from the site as well. Please check out the Animal Rescue Site and perhaps enjoy adding a rescue animal to your own family someday. They are quite grateful !
