All You Need Is LOVE......

I have had so many emails expressing well wishes for my mom and family....thank you so much.  I appreciate your positive, prayerful thoughts.  Big Hugs.....

     
And after long, exhausting days - it lifts my spirits to find a package of love waiting for me when I get home....

     
Dear sweet Clare....you can't imagine how much this helped me.  Truly....I can't even begin to explain.  
Not only that, but I popped the candies in my purse and one day while waiting for test results these candies kept me from starving. hee hee!

      
I never realized how sadness weighs so heavy on the heart.....but on this day it was lifted for a brief time....it was welcome relief.....thank you Clare......

And Kris.....great fabrics just waiting for some stitching!  This certainly helped me to remember that there is another part of me just waiting in the wings.  Itching to stitch again and take some fun photos of Blocks With Socks!  Thank you, Kris! 
   

I have been stitching while sitting bedside....photos soon :)
And some wonderful photos from one of my classes - each and every one hand quilted!!!!
So stay tuned! 
Thanks for not forgetting me while I have been away....
