Baba in South Dakota is Praying for Stellan

God is working in our "small world". Leslie wants us to wear orange tomorrow! This dear little one and his family are friends of my daughter and her family in Minnesota. I know God is watching over him and his family. Stellan is a precious child who is in the hearts and prayers of many. I pray that all of my blogging friends begin to pray for him and spread story far and wide. God will do the rest!

By the way, go to Leslie's post and add your post!

I've Been Sew Busy

I have completed 14 Boutique Burpees (Allison's friends are having babies and the shop down town has a supply to sell now). The fabric for one of them is sew cool I wanted to show you a closeup picture.

Last night Marilyn and I went over to Sara's for dinner and sewing. We each made a grommet purse and it went together very quickly and nicely. I plan to make another this evening for me to take on our vacation this Friday. Four fat quarters and away you go.

I also finished a Christmas wall hanging. Lots of hand sewing going on while I recuperate from the surgery. I am planning to take plenty in the car this weekend as well. Need to get a wedding gift completed this week to take along to bind as well.
Must go back to work but didn't want you to think I have been deprived of creative sewing time.
