I Couldn’t Resist!

I decided since I was doing some applique on the sewing machine I would cut out the next block for the Girl Gang 2008 block of the month. And then when I got it cut out I decided I might as well stitch them down on the machine while it was ready. I think I may go back over the three blocks I have done because I like how the stitching looks.

I can’t say I like the fabrics that were chosen for this block, maybe after I do some decorative hand stitching on them I will like it.


I also finished up another stitchery pillow yesterday and posted it on my selling blog. The second picture is the fabric I used on the back of the pillow.


On a serious note, I am keeping in my prayers and I hope you are the people of Japan.  I am so worried about my friends April and Gene, I wish they could just come home. But they are the kind who want to stay and help. I know her mother flew over there today and they are volunteering for the Red Cross. Gene is a doctor who before he was stationed in Japan set up mobile hospitals in Afghanistan. They both have always been someone I would want around if I were in need, they are a couple of real good people. God bless them.

Off I go, I am having such fun in the quilt room lately I don’t want to leave it. Have a great Wednesday and don’t forget to find a little stitching time.

Love your quilt block and the new pillow. I am also praying for all those in Japan - so sad and such devastation.
Have a great day too Jennifer! <3

I liked that house.
I think about Japan and its people, especially because we are similar.
In these moments that I'm writing it just moved the earth. Yeah, a small earthquake that my son and I perceive. My son sit out of bed and I stopped in here near my notebook or computer.
We pray to God for the people so much suffering in Japan.
Happy sew,

I do like your pillow, and the quilt block looks good to. I will be having a couple of hours stitching later to.
Yes its horrible to see what is happening in Japan, I watch the news each day. I see the cold and snow is upon them as if they have not been through enough already. Your friends sound a lovely couple to have around.
best wishes Julie.C
