Brought to mind…


Hope this finds you doing well and warm.  🙂   

Warm, is what I have wanted all day.   I have been chilled all day and at this moment I have a space heater blowing toward me.  I’m still trying to warm up.

Last night, I saw more batting, than I ever have, in one place.   At the guild meeting, last night, we cut 75 yards of batting.  The batting was 96″ wide.  We cut it lengthwise into 48″ widths, then cut it down into 50″ lengths, so that we ended up with 48″X50″ pieces.  The batting was cut this way for guild members to take and use for love and lap quilts.   

I brought home three pieces, to begin with.   I’m planning on making two lap quilts and a love quilt with these three pieces.  The lap quilts will go to a local nursing home and the love quilts go to a local child development service.

Another goal I have this year, is to get back to donating blankets to Project Linus.  I have done so in the past, but got away from it, in the past few years.

You can check Project Linus out at

The other day, I mentioned that I requested permission to share the crochet pattern for the Scripture Afghan, I have started.   Permission was denied, due to copyright stipulations.   So, I will show the blocks as I finish them, but will not be able to share the pattern with you.   I hope to have my first block done by the end of the week.  The cool thing is, I will be learning a new stitch or pattern with each block.
The old quilt top, I chose the other day, to finish off… I have decided to square it up and add simple, dark borders.  This will frame the quilt and showcase the blocks.   
Today, I heard a song on the radio that brought to mind, my friend Sherry.  She has moved away and I miss seeing her in church and choir, the conversations we had and the laughter we shared.    
The song I heard was How Great is our God.
That’s all I have for this evening… 
…got to go and try to warm up… I’m thinking a hot chocolate and a blanket will do the trick.  🙂
Have a terrific Thursday!
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. Hi Cheryl! While watching the weather earlier I heard your area had a lot of snow. I'm glad you're staying warm. 🙂 So far, our winter in Arkansas has been very mild. It makes me wonder what we are in for, later on this year.

    Have a great weekend!
