summer summary


There was sewing:



turning a thrifted dresser scarf into a lap quilt
a quilt for Lainey (due Sept. 29!)
need to confess - this was already pieced yardage that I'm tying and binding

a Christmas pillow

Time with family:

Mom and Dad are doing fairly well. It seems like we have visited various doctors quite a bit.
Alzheimer's continues to make inroads into Mom's brain, but she is still so very sweet. Dad has had a few diabetic episodes, but we carry on.
treasured visits with family

Pretty flowers:

I also enjoyed a week with Kristi, Josh and Sadie while Jon was on a mission trip to New Orleans.

Lots to tell, I'll pop back in here once or twice a week to chat with you. Hope you are all well!

Hello Cheri~
So good to hear from you! Looks like you have gotten so much accomplished this summer. The quilts and pillow are so cute! I never would have thought to turn a dresser scarf into a lap quilt ! Very creative!
Oh, I am sorry to hear that your mom has Alzheimer's. So difficult to lose our loved ones one small piece at a time! How we need to cherish our times with loved ones, time goes so quickly and we don't even realize it!
Looking forward to hearing more from you!
Be Blessed today!
