Foiled and Jacob’s Ladder

Earlier today, we had the doors open at work.
  Yesterday there was a controlled burn somewhere nearby and when we opened up the office this morning, the smell of the smoke was still with us.   The air outside was clean and fresh, so the doors flew open and stayed opened.

This of course, made it very hard for me to stay indoors!!  I was on the verge of running.

We had an employee get sick this morning and Bonnie (co-worker) took her to the doctor’s office.   I received a call shortly after they left. 
Bonnie had a flat.  She had picked up a nail or something on the way to the doctor’s office.  

She was able to get her vehicle to a shop and I went to pick her up.  When she got in the car I asked her if she had her handbag.   She didn’t.  Everything happened so fast, when she took our employee to the doctor’s; she left without her bag.

Thus my escape was foiled!  
I told her, if she had her handbag we could have taken off to Russellville and gone shopping.  
We got back to work and told our HR Director about the close call.  She laughed and said she was glad we returned.  

 Quote for today
“If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.” 
~Benjamin Franklin~ 

I awoke this morning with this pattern in my mind.
I looked it up in one of my books and found it.
Tonight, I cut the fabric needed for the blocks and pieced my first Jacob’s Ladder block.  
I will have to trim it up and square it off.  The blocks will be 9″ blocks with finished.  
It seems my lighting isn’t the best and this picture doesn’t do the colors justice.  I will have to make sure my  lighting is better when I take a picture of the finished product.
 Final Thoughts
Tomorrow is Friday!
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. Thanks Michele! I have spent today working on the quilt top with Jacob's Ladder. I will post a pic when I get it finished. I hope to have the quilt finished and mailed out by Tuesday or Wednesday at the latest.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend! 🙂
