Bunny Swap

I received my Bunny Swap package and was so very pleased. I've only participated in 2 swaps but have been happy with both packages. Anyway, let me show you some piccies... the first is all the loot sent by my swap buddy; there was fabric, candy, buttons, a dish cloth and a beautiful purple brooch. The second is a paper/cardboard egg from Germany. I was so surprised with this - I remember having one when my dad was stationed in Germany, I was 4-6 yo. (Ancient times). My package came from AZ and the one I sent went to WA state. That's part of the fun, not knowing exactly where your package is coming from but your partner able to choose items especially for you.. Thanks again, swap buddy, I'm enjoying all my goodies...

movie - surprise

We got a surprise this weekend .... We took our 9yo GD to see "Alice in Wonderland" with Johnny Depp as one of the stars. The surprise was the maturity level of the movie; it sure isn't Disney. The movie itself was good, very fast paced, and she enjoyed it so that's what matters. But then again, she's a VERY mature 9yo, it wouldn't have been suitable to take the 2yo -- Toy Story 3 will be showing soon, maybe she can go see that movie.

Someone asked about the 7yo boy in the previous post - he's doing fine, he's home with his family. He had a blood infection and apparently it was a touch and go situation. If Nurse S. hadn't realized what he had it could have been fatal. She insisted transporting him to Atlanta to the children's hospital, which the doctor followed up on. Again, God is good and answers prayers.

Good morning to all my blog buddies. It's been a while since the last post, but I have been working on some UFO's. It seems like I have a lot of those. I had begun a family picture quilt for my DH, with log cabin squares in between the piccys, but then decided to take those out and do pics and sashes only for that quilt, (it's still a UFO). I had more log cabins than I thought, so I added some more this weekend and right now it could be a nice lap quilt but I think I'll go for at least the twin size. After looking at the "cabins", I wish I had waited and made a different pattern instead of little squares, but that's way too much sewing to'll just have to stay like that!! My DD and DH wanted to know who that was for - I guess they're used to me giving away everything I make. All of your blogland quilts are so pretty on ya'lls walls, I may just keep this one - but then the size would be fine for now...decisions, decisions, decisions....

And as a grandmother I have to brag a little --- our oldest GD won the Middle Georgia Talent Search this weekend. God has given her such a beautiful voice. She has been asked to be the lead-in singer for a well-known gospel group that will be performing next weekend. Probably Thursday night - it's a hours drive, and it's a work day and I'd like my parents to see her on stage, but you know us grammies -- we'll go to the end of the earth for our children......

the picture above was taken at our church, they always enjoy her singing.

The sun is shining and the birds are singing (I can hear them outside the window). But if you read this blog - please add a 7 yo little boy to your prayer list; he is the son of an acquaintance and is on a ventilation tube and fever of 104... he also has a heart condition, since birth, and now it looks so very shaky for him and his family. It's emotionally hard on the family for a child to be sick and there's really nothing you can do to change it but to pray....God kows what His plans are and we're not always supposed to understand them...

It makes me thankful that my children and grandchildren are healthy. Sure, we all had the virus but that is nothing compared to some other illnesses.
