so, how is the one couch quilt coming?

I have finished my gift for Ben & Julie and will give it to them Sunday. Hopefully it will be a comfort to them. They are such sweet people, it breaks my heart to see them hurting so. I will post pic of the gift after I give it to them.

I also have been trying to finish up one other project. I had it all done, and noticed it wasn't square, so took off the binding and cut it all apart. Now, it is square in the center, and the borders are square (double & triple checked by me & hubby). So, I just have to put it all back together and bind it again and it is done. This is the last project on my plate before I can fully devote myself to the one couch quilt.

Hubby has built a wonderful cutting table for me, and is working on a pressing table which will roll underneath the table, and have storage for baskets of project materials. So, hopefully soon, it will be easier to work on things! Thank you, Dan! I love you!

Isa (who sewed the wonky star and beaded "stolen snacks") was diagnosed as type 1diabetic recently. She is doing very well, but covets your prayers. She was in the hospital for 2 days, then had doctor appointments all day long after getting out.

Hopefully now things will be on an even keel again, and I will be able to find some time to work on my quilt. My goal is to have it done by mid April.

Julie & Ben

Dear friends of ours, said hello and goodby to their little baby girl yesterday. She was born at 20 weeks. My heart breaks for them, and want them to know that I am praying for them.

Their daughter, Aubrianna Faith weighed 1 pound and 2 ounces, she was 11 inches long.

She now awaits at the Pearly Gates, anxious for when she can tell her Mommy & Daddy how much she loves them.
