I took a few days to work on a gift for my neighbor, Rose. She has been such a wonderful friend to me and my hubby, and she admired the ten commandments wallhanging that I have up in my home. Remember this one?
She called me today and told me that she had opened her gift and LOVED it . I'm so glad.
I machine-quilted it with my walking foot that I bought earlier this year.......it was well worth the extra bucks to wait until I found this one with the wide-open foot so that I can really tell where I'm quilting.

I don't know if I'll make a quilt like the photo, or just use the yummy color combination for something else delicious (see, Wanda, just gotta start playing against the rules again). Whatever the case, it's nice to get an infusion of new color into the stash.
On the health side of things, I am still eating only cream soups for lunch, and using the Ensure to fill in the rest of the diet. I still have to sleep in a semi-upright position to keep from drowning in my own saliva secretions. But, you know, things could be A LOT worse, and I know the healer, and I am just waiting to see the evidence of things not yet seen......know what I mean? If not, you can read the 11th chapter of Hebrews for a clue !
Well, tomorrow and the next few days are going to be rather busy, so I'll send my love to you all right now, and thank you for all the prayers and support.
