Hi All, I want to thank all of you for your wonderful comments on my last quilt block. I haven't been busy sewing the last couple of weeks. Too much going on. I wanted to just touch bases with everyone and say hi and wish you all a Happy 4th. It is a joy having wonderful blogging buddies and hi to my latest followers. I will get back to you guys to see what is going on with you all. My hubby is having eye probs on top of everything else he has going on. He has remarkable stamina, that man!!! I pray things will straighten out soon and I will be back sewing my next block. I am having fun with them and the history behind them is really fascinating. Got some house probs also. If it isn't one thing it is two, lol....
Got wonderful news in spite of all our trials though. The Lord always sees fit to give us something to see us through. My niece and her husband are coming to visit in Sept. I haven't seen them for 5 years. It will be wonderful to see them. It is her granddaughter I did the doll for. I am thinking if they will help pay for shipping I will make her a dollhouse. It will be very well made when put together as the wood is very well cut and heavy duty. It will be done up in a farmhouse style and I am thinking of making it look very much like my grandmothers farmhouse. Complete with the hand pump at the soapstone sink. That will be so neat!!! I have to check into how much it will weigh and the cost of shipping it. Once done it will be awkward to pack so I may be putting my cart before the horse here. lol... I have had the kit
for a while now and would love to do it for her. I don't think my granddaughter is going to have a child very soon the way they talk. Anyway, food for thought.
Read some really good books lately.
"Crossing The Borders Of Time" A true story of war, exile and love reclaimed. By Leslie Maitland.
"A Chance In The World" A true story about an abused orphan boy, a mysterious past, how he found a place called home. This book is not for the feint of heart. I had trouble reading some of it and can not believe how this boy turned into the wonderful man he did. He has great perseverance. The book is by Steve Pemberton.
"The Mockingbird Next Door: Life with Harper Lee" Marja Mills spent months living next door to Harper Lee and her sister Alice Lee while doing research for her book about Harpers life. Harper Lee wrote "To Kill A Mockingbird". There were some interesting tidbits to come out of the read. Now I will have to read "To Kill A Mockingbird" again as it has been years and I have forgotten some things. And I also want to watch the movie again after I read the book.
Well that is the news from here for now. Hope everyone is having a great summer and I wish you all a great 4th of July. Hugs, LJ
