COOL! It’s A Halo!

Last night I got home around 9:00 PM, hurried into the house, put my handbag down and headed straight for the ‘little girls’ room.  My daughter, Audre, and I had visited my parents who live about 45 minutes away and that last bottle of water I had… well… like I said, straight to the bathroom. 

Driving home and then rushing into the house I failed to notice a beautiful site in the sky.  My husband brought it to my attention. 

He led me outside and said “Babe, look up.”

“Cool!  It’s a halo!”  My voice echoed in the neighborhood…

Though a picture of the halo around the moon was not to be caught on film, the beautiful moon was.

It never ceases to amaze me, how beautiful the moon is.


Had a quilt guild meeting tonight.
I was blessed with one of the door prizes tonight
I belong to the Logan County PieceMakers Quilt Guild in Paris, AR.  
We had a good program tonight.  It was on marking your quilt for quilting. 
One tip I was impressed with was to use a clear vinyl sheet.  You lay the clear vinyl sheet on top of your quilt top and use a dry erase marker and draw out your quilting design.  You can erase it away if it’s not quite what you want and redraw it until you get the pattern just right.    
Another useful tip was if you use the clear vinyl sheet make sure to mark the edges so that you don’t mark on your quilt top as you are playing around with the design.  The lady doing the demonstration used gray duct tape to mark hers.  She said that markers wear off too easily.  
I’m thinking some of that cool looking duct tape (like the zebra stripe or something) would be a cool way to mark the edges.   

What do you think about the handy tips I learned tonight?

One of my favorite quotes….
Your worst days are never so bad you are beyond the reach of God’s grace, 
and your best days are never so good you are beyond the need of God’s grace.
God bless and keep you,

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.

  1. Heavenly celebrations are everywhere when we take a moment to peek at the natural wonders or even better, when we are reminded to slow down and just quietly enjoy! Happy Day, Sonia. Love, EM
