I love giveaways!!


My friend Shannon has a giveaway........don't know what......over on her blog, check it out.

Prayers needed for my son. He is 31 and last night at work he got sick so the guy he works with took him next door to the fire department and they rushed him by ambulance to the nearest hospital (personally I would have walked the extra mile to the other one). He has arterial fib.
His heart rate was over 260 but all other vital signs were normal. He was put in a semi private room today and we are still waiting to see what they do to control it. I know the first thing they are going to tell him is to drop at least 100 pounds. He is 6'2" and pushing hard on 300 pounds.
I know he will be ok once they figure out what meds to put him on but it's the waiting that is making me a crazy person. And I can't concentrate on anything and I'm eating like a horse.

I hope everyone has a great week.

Another day

Today is my daughter in laws 29th birthday. Happy Birthday Lisa, we love you.
So I went to town and picked up a really cute cake with blue and yellow roses, her favorite colors, and took them to where she works.

All the kids, well, the closest ones, are coming for Mother's Day on Sunday. I think I will BBQ this time. Usually we have spaghetti which I know everyone loves.

I've been making up some stuff for a shop that recently opened in Victorville called Sweet Confections. They came by and got some of my quilts, aprons, totes, table runners. Tried to stop by this morning to deliver some more stuff I made and can you believe it, I couldn't find them.
I'm wondering if this was a scam to get "stuff". I certainly hope not. I know people on the sheriff's department!

Well, the prison was sold to another prison system. The shut down day is June 4th. John still doesn't know if he will keep his job or not. The assistant warden made a comment that he didn't have to worry about severance pay. I hope not. But it may mean moving to Tennessee before we had planned to. Darn the luck!

My friend, Faye, gave me her EQ5 program (quilt designing computer program) so I've been busy playing with it. So far I've designed 9 or 10 new quilts. I just wish I was better at figuring out the computer and it's uses. A friend and I are planning a book to come out hopefully before Christmas. I'll keep you posted.

Back to work on customer quilts for me!
I hope everyone has a great weekend. And Happy Mother's Day to all my friends.
