I am with a quilt group called A Dozen Quilters. I have never done anything like this before, but a friend Melissa from Lilac Lane invited me to be a part of this blog. Each month one of the ladies in A Dozen Quilters decides what kind of block and color she wants. I have really enjoyed it. Well, this block is for February. Iva who is part of the group put her wishes up on a post. I had never done a Wonky Log Cabin and thought it would be kind of fun to do it. It wasn't only fun it was a blast!!!!! I loved doing it. I think it turned out so fun. You need to go to A Dozen Quilters to her post and look up the sites. If you would like to do this kind of block you can find the different blocks available. I was so pleased and it "is" real easy!!!! Promise. Just wanted to show it to you. Just a little something that is going on in my life.
I signed up at Mary Jane Farm to do a Pink Keep Swap. It was so fun. I could decide what I wanted the pin keep to look like. I had been to a blog called Cottage In The Curve and saw this Martha Stewart Strawberry Pincushion. I loved the blog and the pincushion. I thought it would be fun to make the strawberry and put it in this adorable egg cup I found on sale for 35 cents. I enlarged the strawberry pattern and leaf. The lady I just swapped with just received it, so I wanted to show you what it looked like. If you ever want to sign up with the Mary Jane Farmhouse (go along the side of my blog and click on her blog button), you can get in on some swaps also. I don't get to do very many, but it has been fun to do when I have. I love how the pic turned out. It gives me a warm heart.
P.S. Please continue to keep my Dad in your prayers. I have been able to see him every day, but all that he can do is nod his head up and down. I am so very grateful for that. I can at least tell him he is loved. Mr. Phil is reading him the Word. It is precious to see. God is doing what He does best and I just have to rest. I was reminded this morning of the verse in Isaiah 49:16, "See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hand......" Isn't that a comfort? To think, if you engrave something the dictionary said, "to be permanently fixed in". That does my heart good. Poppa is permanently fixed in to our Father's Hand. I can think on that and trust what my Heavenly Father is doing.
I got sick today and could not go see him. That was very hard, but we could call. All our older kids went to visit. That helped me know he was being encouraged. He is coming to the nursing home on Monday. Please pray for that transition. Thank you so much. I love you all bunches!
