Tuesday's quilting

(Today's background is in honor of my little sick pirate, T.J. )

I wasted spent alot of time today on EQ5, wanting to play in the sewing room before I had to knuckle down to the hand-quilting. I didn't actually cut anything, though, but I loved the linear look of this design (for a quilt for T.J.)

I spoke to him this morning, and they were all coming off of a bout with food-poisoning, after eating at their favorite Chinese restaurant one last time before moving back from Germany to live in Oklahoma again. They fly home on Thursday, God willing, and hopefully not stalled by the icy weather that is predicted to hit mid-America that day.

There's a possibility that I might go with these American flag type of samples that I got from friends in Oklahoma a few years ago. I've really been saving them for a quilt for Kelley, though.

Around 2 p.m., I settled down to quilt for awhile, and family promptly stopped by, so I quilted under a light that is situated over hubby's bed. I didn't get as much done as yesterday, but enjoyed good company and conversation all the while.

6 year-old, Zoe, asked me if I could come to the airport, too, when Grammy picks them up on Thursday evening. I said, "baby girl, you know that Nana lives a whole day's trip away from Grammy !" She said, "oh, yeh,..................................................................... then could you be there the next morning when I wake up?"
Tore my heart out to have to say no ! I said, "PawPaw's not well and can't travel that far right now, so I'll have to wait for you to come to me soon."

Hmmmmmmmm........we'll have to see which is harder--having them so far away, as in Germany, or having them so close and not being able to get there anyway ! Atleast we'll be through with the time-difference and international long-distance, so that I can call whenever I want !

Because you are all so dear to me, I would love to request that you lift an extra prayer tonight for safe passage home for my dear little family of five....Kelley, Tim, Zoe, T.J., and Seth ! Thank you so much !

We know you're protecting them and guiding them. Continue to bless them, prosper them and have only good things prepared for them and we will thank You!

  3. Well, they won't be flying into Oklahoma today! The airports are closed. Too much ice. My living room and kitchen windows look like frosted glass! - the kind with froze water looking streaks. Can't see out at all. Got a pot of cajun red beans and rice cooking...hope we don't lose electricity until it is done at least! But if we do we are ready :)
    Stay warm everyone.
