Steelers Quilt for Dash

this is what I have been up to. Dash needs a new quilt. this was begun around Christmas and set aside. His Birthday is in March, but he needs a new quilt now. The one I made him several years back is a tattered cloth. The other day he was mouthing off a bit to me. Later that evening once we made it home I showed him the lay out on the cutting table. He was very quiet while I finished making supper. I heard Dove say "are you ok?, Why are you crying?" to him.
After he saw it he was so touched that it moved him into tears.
The Steelers fabric is in the dryer it will be the backing.

 With one more row to stitch I just had to attach two of them to see how it was going to look. My efforts are very careful to match up the corners. The black is as an oil slick. The black has the nap of the fabric varied to give it a motion visually.
On April 27, 2009, amid ongoing financial problems and restructuring efforts, GM announced it would discontinue the Pontiac brand by the end of 2010 and focus on four core brands in North America: Chevrolet, Cadillac, Buick, and GMC. The last Pontiacs were built in late 2009, with the final dealer franchises expiring October 31, 2010.

This is what I am up to.
The sewing studio has been organized a bit better. Note the old 1957 pfaff is on the floor. I am moving on up to the new machine. It really is a nice machine, took me awhile to attach to it after all these years on the pfaff.
All went pretty well at the hospital. VERY painfully they 'pulled' the internal suture out, it had to then be snipped. He said that there is a possibility that it might happen again and that this would need to be repeated. I was only two minutes of intence pain so they did not numb it. I was shaking for a few hours afterward.
It did not stop me from having a great attitude and a wonderful afternoon taking the kids to the park near the school. We three then went to the book store where Dove spent her earnings. Target next where Dash spent his. Home and hearth was a nice stop of the day.
Hope you all have a nice week end

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"
