Prayers, Quilts, Books and Powdered Donuts

I come to you this evening with powdered donuts and a tall glass of milk.  

I’m celebrating a nice surprise.  I’ll tell you about it in a minute but first check out the following information posted by The Rabbit’s Lair.


Quilts for Joplin
Tomorrow – Friday, May 27 – we will begin our efforts in creating quilts of care for Joplin residents whose lives have been turned upside down by the tornado.

We know their recovery will be a long process, and it will be sometime before they will be able to accept our gifts of caring. Right now, the basic necessities of life are what they need. But by working on quilts now we can work toward being ready for when they can accept them.

We’ll have kits available in fabrics that will make the young set smile — “Dino” and “Dots & Daisies” — or bring your own fabrics!

If you can’t make it tomorrow, we’ve set some other Friday dates — June 3 and 17, July 1 and 8.

Only Because of His Grace,
Mary Elizabeth

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.
