    Your grandbabies are adorable. Great job on your first quilt. Such memories will go on forever and ever. Love to go back and look at pics of my grandbabies when they were young and the progress I have made over the years with my quilting. Keep up the good work gal! And welcome from Arkansas.

    I have to share this with you all last night i sent my daughter and hubby out to get some flower so i could make some bisquits, Dixie mt oldest granddaughter went with them, When they got home i said Dixie did you go shopping, She raises her little arms in the arms and said maw-maw me shopped till me dropped, we all got a laugh out of it,
    Wasn't expecting that reply from her,
    Melissa is finally saying a couple of words she mainly says UP she wants to be held,

    Update
    well i still haven't found a job but got a letter from disability to go in front of the judge, Found out my back doctor hasn't sent them my records on my herniated disk or annular tear, so i got to get that information to them . Got to go to the eye doctor tomorrow because my glasses are not helping my eye anymore they are blurry, as some of you know i am totally blind in my left eye and to be able to read i have to make the fonts large, hubby put me a piece of magnet on the sewing machine so i can sew my blocks , Hes been cutting fabric for me and threading the sewing machine, Hes been a big help, So yall keep praying with me
    Well thats about it
    HUGS all Dora

    Updateing
    went to the eye doctor today he increased the lens in my glasses 50percent from what they were lost little more site in right eye, he has referred me to an eye surgeon , he also said he wanted me to get a full blood work done because hes concerned with my right eye losing site , so the glasses improved my vision from blurry to being able to see a little better, so thats all we know until i can go to the surgeon and get the full bloodwork done
