Hexi Friday on Saturday...

I know I am late with this post...but I have had a rough week this past week...I have poison oak on my right eyelid and it is not only very painful but really swollen as well...I did get a little stitching done between eye breaks though....I am really pleased with this week total which is three flowers! Even with all the eye upset...very 
painful and taking loads of allergy meds which make me sleepy...
I now have a total of seven flowers ready for the next round of color for them, which is what I may try and accomplish on this coming week...or I may finish the other five I have basted and then do all them together for the next round...depends on how my eye situation progresses this week...keep those needles stitching,

EPP Monday Star Count 2...

Not much accomplished this past week with the stars...I have been working on a project with a deadline (to me) so not much time for the stars...I did get the connecting diamonds sewn onto the red star though...I guess some progress is better than none at all...I also have worked on my scrappy hexagons as well...those will be posted on Wednesday...it is raining here again today...dark, dreary, overcast, heavy rain with wind and thunder....so much for the lovely sunshine for one day...it is pouring down rain as I type this...the internet connection has acted up all day because of the rain and clouds...off to stitch some more so I can have more to show soon...keep those needles stitching...linking up here just in case you want to see what the rest of the ladies are up to....

A Little EPP....

Not much going on here...I did get these finished this past week...have not had a lot of time to stitch...hope that will change this week...

This is the pincushion that I won on Terry's blog giveaway...she sent along some threads a little magnet all wrapped up in the green fabric...

LE Start...

"Love Entwined" by: Esther Aliu
 Fabric selection for "Love Entwined"
Edited on July 11, 2013: after much thought and study of the above photo after enlarging it...I have decided that my applique skills are not such that I will be able to follow along with this quilt at this time...however, I will be downloading the monthly blocks for this lovely quilt and put it on my bucket list of quilts to do...I am disappointed, but know this is the right action for me to take at this time...the time that would be needed to spend on this coverlet is more than I could put into it at this time...hopefully I can make this quilt at a later date and do it justice...
An update on mom is in the previous post at the bottom....:)
I have made a mock up of the "Love Entwined" compass that is the first part of the new bom that Esther is sharing with those of us who belong to her group....sign up is free if you want to be a part of this great bom...it will take from July 2013 until November 2014 to finish so this is a long term project....My plan is to use Kaffe fabrics with a black background...I hope to start the compass this weekend if I can squeeze in the time...Mock up for "Love Entwined"

Prayers Needed...

Update on MOM!
First let me say thank you for all of you who have prayed or send emails asking about my mom....I really appreciate each and every one of you....your prayers, thoughts and emails about my mom have meant so much to me...she went into cardiac arrest on Sunday afternoon and had no heartbeat for four minutes...she was transported to the hospital and was in cicu1 for two days, then moved to a regular room...she is better and we have her at home and settled in her own room...many of you know that she has congestive heart failure and this is part of that disease....we are so thankful to God for giving her back to us for a while longer....each day is special and we have such thankful hearts that she is still with us...lots of changes for the future...


Those of you who have followed my blog for some time know that my sweet mom suffers from congestive heart failure....on last evening her heart stopped for about four minutes while I was with her in her home...she was transported to the hospital and is in cicu1 which is the cardiac intensive care unit....those who pray please keep her in your prayers please...her name is Marie and we would greatly appreciate all the prayers we can get for her...she is such a great mom and will be 79 yrs young next month....I will be absent from the blog for a while but will update if possible...jut too much trouble to take to the hospital....thank you for your prayers in advance....
