    Saint for quilters!!

    My nice went to Santa Fe for vacation and found this while shopping. So kind of her to think of me.

    We have our own Saint!! When everything is going wrong with our quilt, we can pray to Saint Rose of Lima for help! Here is the wooden plaque she sent me.

    Since I gain weight reading cookbooks, why can't I lose weight watching a fitness program?

    There's a church in my area called St. Rose of Lima. I never knew she's the patron saint of quilting. Thanks for sharing that info.
    I pray for peace today and hope I don't have to tomorrow.

    When I was accused of living in a fantasy world I almost fell off my unicorn.

    What a great niece to send you that. I will have to request one from my local Catholic store.

    We have schools and churches here with that name. I love the plaque. Good to know we quilters have someone to pray to if things don't go right. I am not catholic, wonder if that makes a difference.
