For Today....

Outside my window ~ cool, sunny right now, supposed to rain again later

I am thinking ~ about the future

I am thankful for ~ Greg's continued healing from strep & pneumonia

From the learning rooms ~ schoolwork

From the kitchen ~ chili & cornbread for dinner tonight

I am wearing ~ denim skirt, Haiti mission trip shirt

I am creating ~ embroidered quilt top, baby rag quilt to sell, more pinwheels

I am going ~ to enjoy each day

I am reading ~ in the New Testament finishing John & starting Acts, The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder

I am hearing ~ cars driving, fingers typing, floors creaking

I am  hoping praying ~ for Mission opportunities and thankful for the Lord allowing us to join in His work

Around the house ~ lots of crafts, recovering chair seats, and the usual ~~~cooking, cleaning, laundry, playing with puppies, reading, shopping, couponing, etc.

One of my favorite things ~ sweet hugs from Alston, Ragen, Sara, & Lauren

A few things for the rest of the week ~ bible study, crafting, dinner with Tapleys, finishing projects, and my Allen turns 23 this week on the 23rd!

  1. Your work is beautiful! I especially love the block with Jeremiah 29:11 :)

  2. I like sweet hugs from Alston, Sara, Ragen and Lauren too! Or maybe I'm just partial!!!! We are also looking forward to dinner Friday night. Ragen thinks we are coming to your house for a party.

  3. I love your work, my Moma used to do so good but this talent did not make it down to me. I am a neighbor, I am an Arkansas wife and mother.

  4. Love your post. Chili and cornbread sound yummy. Embroidery and cross stitch look beautiful.

  5. Donna,
    thank you for sharing this great quilting link! I am thinking I will make these blocks and make pillows out of them. I would love to learn to quilt but I just don't have the time right now. I am learning to sew, maybe that will help me to learn to quilt someday!

  6. Sounds great Monica! I am a relatively new quilter but am excited to learn more!

  7. Great work! I enjoyed your daybook very much.
    Have a wonderful week.
