Christmas Week

Christmas Week

Clue #4 

I'm so thankful that this week's clue was fairly easy.    Here are my completed 120 four-patch blocks displayed with my cute little antique Wilcox and Gibbs machine.  No, I didn't piece them on it even tho I could of.   My little machine is in excellent working condition and sews beautify.



As some of you know our family is going through a difficult time.  Pray for our daughter Queena who is having a Bi-polar episode.  God has been so gracious in her life and for years she has been in such good mental health.  She lives so very far away in Malaysia.   
It's hard for this momma.  Besides praying I find great therapy in sewing.  So this week I've have been sewing!


Yesterday I finished Dorie's quilt and will be taking it along to Malaysia when I go this week-end.   What a fun quilt to piece as well as machine quilt.  Each triangle was a new canvas for me to try out a new stitch.

Here's the stacks of all the completed units so far.   I'll be spending 2 weeks with Ethan, Queena, Dorie and James in Malaysia and will take a month off from the Mystery Quilt....to be completed in Feb. when I get together with my sister's and mother  for our yearly "Heatwole Sewing Retreat".

Dories quilt turned out so wonderfully nice. I'm sure she will like it and love having you there as well. Gods blessings on you and Holly as you visit Queena & Ethan and family.

What a lovely quilt for your granddaughter. My heart goes out to you as your daughter is going through this time of trial. May you have safe travels and a blessed time with her and her family. It's so hard to watch our children hurting. I will be praying!
