Women of Courage

This is the quilt I've been working on for the last 11 months. It was a block of the month at my local quilt shop. The ladies that own Sweetheart Quilt Shoppe in Loveland, Colorado are so friendly and helpful and they are a joy to learn from. I did all the piecing and putting the quilt top together, and then because I broke my arm, my daughter, Kim, did the quilting and binding. I love this quilt.

Taking A Break Because Of A Break

I'm going to be taking a break from all my favorite activities because on Mother's Day I fell down the basement steps at my daughter's house and broke my left arm in two places and sprained my left ankle. Because the break is near the end of the bone that goes into the shoulder socket, they can't put a cast on. I will be in a sling 4-6 weeks and then therapy. You don't realize how much you use both arms until you can't use one of them. All I can say is I am trusting God for healing, counting my blessings it wasn't worse, and thanking God for the wonderful husband that is taking really good care of me.
