    Great little quilt, Bertie!

    Sending hugs to everyone who needs one.

    Today is better. I am just so devastated for my son who just can't seem to get a job. And his new wife is more than a little crabby about it. To round things out the car he got to replace the one he lost in the flood seems to have more problems than was immediately apparent -- like needing a catalytic converter -- and he can't get it inspected without it. And as he was leaving here yesterday after helping me with sewing for hours he found he had a flat tire. Add to that the seemingly impossible mountain of paperwork and bureaucracy to get back home ... and, well, I was in an extremely poopy mood. But today is a good one. I am just putting one step in front of the other and running the dogs out in between monsoons. Hubby is working until midnight so I think I will stroll across the street and get some Chinese food for dinner! No cooking, no dish washing.

    We have had the monsoons and god awful humidity for a week. Today it's sunny and low 70's. Hope your better day is coming.

    This morning the sun is out, it's in the 50's with a light breeze. A glorious morning! Perfect to throw open the windows and finish my little quilt!

    Oh how I wish it was 50's here this morning. We are already 79, hot and humid. UGH will be a fun summer with my lung issues.

    Enjoy your glorious morning.

    I love Texas for so many reasons, but the weather isn't one of them. Keep cool!

    Yup. A good chuckle. Actually, with all things considered, life is good. I do not live in a country where bombs are whizzing overhead or people are chopping off your arms or the neighborhood makes you radioactive. I have a comfy bed, food to eat, fabric to play with, a mannequin to chat with (although she doesn't have much to say in reply) ... so what more could I possibly need?

    I'm happily quilting my partner's little quilt. Then the binding will go on and into the wash it goes - with color catchers! Wheeeeeee!

    Some sad news this morning for our family and a request for prayers. My daughter, that came home to the USA this week from serving as a missionary in Africa for a year, is in the hospital with malaria. She has a 2 month old baby boy. They are in Texas and with her husband's family. Her mother in law is taking care of the baby now. She had been nursing the baby up till now. Please for those that pray to hold them in prayers. Also they were in between insurances so that is an added worry. I am feeling so sad and helpless right now.

    I just received news they will change the medication so she can nurse her 2 month old. Thank you for your prayers. I am so glad she is in Texas and has good medical care plus the support of her family in law. At this point they believe she might be released tomorrow with additional home care.

    Anna, how awful for your daughter and the little one. Prayers going up for a speedy recovery.

    Omacookie, what a darling little quilt! I love the buttons! They add so much.

    Progress update on the one I'm making for Lara -- the binding is going on NOW!!!

    It's done!!!! I used a technique I've never used before and one that I think will be one of my favorites. I quilted the heck out of it and ... well I like it! I hope Lara does, too!

    Prayers for your family Annaquilts. You'll sleep better tonight knowing she gets to go home soon with her little one! Nice red,white and blues! Mine is put together and will start stitching on it tomorrow-yeah! My favorite part! We are getting storms blowing up within an hour here - and it just pours rain! I don't think but half of the crops are in yet, not good for any of us that eats!

    Update on DD. The malaria is a very bad strain and drug resistant but the medication should be coming in tomorrow morning to the hospital. The doctor expects her to be able to go home 24-48 hours after that. They chanced her medication and she can nurse her baby now. The baby and DD's husband are with her at the hospital now. I'll feel so much better when she gets the correct medicine.

    Lara (buzzinbumble),
    first let me say I am so happy your son wasn't hurt when he hit the deer! Here in Iowa they are taking over. Deer accidents almost everyday. I had to tell you though that I love, love love your doggie pics! What a bunch of cuties! They all look kissable, lol.
