Blossoms of light..

It was good to be back in my sewing room this week.   It all started on the weekend when I made this small baby quilt and large receiving blanket.  These two will go the our local COS.

30″ square

 I started working on this little quilt a week or so ago.  I finished it this evening.  It is 8″ x 12″.
It is a representation of what’s been going on with my dad.   Though there have been dark days, there has been small blossoms of light along the way.
I have added three beads in each block, representing the Holy Trinity and how God has helped each of us through this long process.  I quilted it in a way that represents the roller coaster ride we have been on with the good days and bad days.  🙂  I used metallic thread to quilt it, representing dad’s strong will.
 Dad is beginning to have more good days and is getting stronger.

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.
