Friday the 13th

My heart aches for all of France in the bloody aftermath of the hated Islamic radical terrorist attacks on Friday the 13th. May God help France to recover and my special prayers go to the innocent victims and their families.

In less distressing news, I have been working on lots of different projects; a little here, a little there.

Yes, that picture above is the binding for Scrappy Jacob's Ladder #3. It is all prepared and ready to be sewn onto that big quilt. It is an ancient Cranston print of landscape grasses, but the color was perfect! It busted some deep stash, but I still didn't use all of it, eek!

My dear friend, Frances, got home from a brief sojourn in the hospital and continues to do well, although her great niece did get her a hospital bed in their home. Frances loved her newest quilt gift from me, which was an inexpensive Chinese cheater print quilt that can be washed to death.

Frances had advice for everyone; "Don't worry about anything, cause it will only make you sick with a bellyache or a backache. Just take each day and be grateful for what you have!" Not bad for a 99 year old lady!

The Friday quilters met at The Golden Gese Quilt Shop on 22 Liberty Street in Concord, New Hampshire. Below, is Beverly and Elly working on the instructions for one of those little super sack projects.

Maureen, below, was sewing up pieces of her Dutchman's Puzzle blocks.

They sure are pretty in that Ophelia line layer cake from Missouri Star Quilt Company!!

May we all remember to say, "I love you" to those who matter in our lives and thank God for all our blessings. We are not promised tomorrow.

Happy quilting!

Look at all those projects in the works!
Bless that dear Frances. Great advice! That quilt is bright and cheery for someone confined to bed. I hope she is comfortable and on the mend!

Give Frances a hug - she knows what she's talking about.
