Hunkering Down for A Long Winters Eve....and some other thoughts

Hello Sweet Friends,

Here in Georgia we are
bracing ourselves for a
pretty severe Snow/Ice
storm heading our way
sometime this evening.

My husband and I have
been scurrying around
town getting salt crystals
to scatter and De-icer for
the car. Filled the car up
with plenty of gas too.
My husband works about an
hour away from our home
and so is not relishing the
drive into work in the morning
like many other Atlantan's!!

I went over to Jo-Ann's to buy
a few odds and ends this afternoon
that I needed to complete some
craft projects with as well.
Of course I had to buy another
magazine...this time it was
"Romantic Homes". My all time
favorite one for many years
is "Victoria Bliss" which I have collected
for over 14 years now.

The picture I posted tonight is the
quilt I am finishing up for my sweet
little granddaughter Lucia....sigh...
I'm totally in love with her.
The quilt I am making for her
is called a "Vintage baby quilt"
It is made up of charm squares
that you sew horizontal and vertical
lines across the whole quilt. Quite
easy for a beginner quilter as well.
You can throw it is the wash and the edges
will fray for a charming effect!
All I have left to do is add the satin
binding in "cream color" and viola!

As some of you know from earlier posts
my hubby and I are "hoping" to drive up
to New Jersey later this week so we can
see Lucia for the 1st. time and also my two
grandsons. We are Praying that we will be able
to make the journey up and back home without
any SNOW!!!!
Well all these things are in the Lords hands
and I turn it all over to him for He always
knows best!!!! Please say some prayers that our
journey will go alright!

Please Pray with me for Gabbie Gifford
and all of the folks that were involved
in this horribly sad event that took
place in Arizona. There were so
many signs that this man was insane
and too bad he was not apprehended
somehow before he took the lives of
6 people including a nine year old girl.
and injuring so many.

We need to make a difference in this
world and act upon things more than
just hope that it will be alright!

I Love All of you and wish you
Peace and Love in all that you
do in your life.
