AUCTION for Christian & Nie Nie!

Over a week ago a young couple was in a private plane flying home. Their plane crashed killing their pilot and the young man, Christian, recieved burns over 30% of his body. His wife Stephanie is burned over 80% of her body. She is a fellow blogger and many in the blogging community have come togather to all do auctions to help raise money for the families medical care and childrens daily care. The couple has 3 young children that are now living with Stephanies sister.

I am proud to say that I too will be Auctioning something off. I have made a nice Turning Twelve Patriotic lap quilt. My auction will begin at 9am and run thru the following tuesday Sept 2. The quilt is above.

All bids should be in whole dollar amounts. I hope I will get lots of visitors to this site so I can have a good auction for them.


Fancy Field Frock Silent Auction for NieNie

Fancy Field Frock Silent Auction for NieNie this is a silent auction for some other blogger who with her husband was in a plane crash and is in critical condition in a burn unit. Her sister and some other Australian bloggers are encouraging other bloggers to create silent auctions of their own and send the money to be used for their medical bills. I will start tonite on something and hope to be able to auction it off by next week.
My prayers go with this couple as they begin the fight of their life.

Apple Orchard Overalls GIVEAWAY !!!!!!!

Apple Orchard Overalls GIVEAWAY !!!!!!!

This is a cute little overalls giveaway handmade for either a boy or girl. This lady does bi-weekly giveawys so visit often.


Well I have been busy trying to get several UFO's finished the last few days. I got online during the weekend and found another lovely blog doing a GIVEAWAY! She has opened a new shop and is giving something away all week. One is a very lovely pattern for " Dancing Flowers."

I hope that anyone reading my blog will mosy her way and check it out.

Grandkids started school today and were very excited to be back. The preemie is finally at home with her mama but she is not eating well so had to have a feeding tube put in her stomach. Doctors are saying that there is a good chance she will either have cerabel palsey or mental retardation. I am keeping her in my nightly prayers that our Heavenly Father will watch out for her and she will grow up without the disability but either was she will be thorougly loved by all of her family. I have not seen her since leaving the hospital but will try to post a picture as soon as I do. I need to get to work on a quilt for her now.

This last weekend we were busy getting our bikes ready to ride and with PaPa's help we finally got on the road. Here is a picture of my first family bike ride with the grandkids. PaPa is to lazy to go.

The compulsion to knit has caught me in it's grasp. It started with scarves, I think I have made a fuzzy one of those for everyone in my family. I am now working on a T-Shirt type sweater for myself. It's going pretty good so far but I can't believe I have forgotten so much. I used to knit alot when I was younger but I have really lost alot of what I knew. One of my goals is that before the end of the year I want to learn how to knit socks.

I found this picture of the two kitties on the internet, I call it " Best Friends". I love cats, I don't know what I would do If I came home and there wasn't a soft furry thing here to greet me. As soon as I come in the door she jumps in my lap, she is my Calico and here name is Miss Kitty. I also have Bonnie that is a grey tabby and she is my quilt inspector as you can see in my photo. She will lay on every quilt I make and if there is one in the hoop she sits in the hoop as she is doing in the picture. I will have to get a pictue of Miss Kitty so there is one of her on here also or she will feel left out.
We have had off and on rain for the last three days and I think we will get another round tonite. It definately cools it off some after but makes it very humid before we get it. School will be starting soon and I am looking forward to having my days to myself again. I may leave the 12-hr shifts to go to work at a Drs office. The work will be easier on my knees and a lot less stressful.
Guess that is all for now. Hope everyone has a great day.
