Memorial Day

Design Wall Monday – 5/30/11

It's been a while but I've started sewing again!  It's going to be a camera bag. The pattern is in the new Quilts and More magazine that has the ice cream cone pin cushion on the cover.

The polka dots will be on the inside. I promise the binding looks much better against the other side.

Questioning Faith

My grandmother, who lived in Tucson, was well-known for her faith and lack of reticence in talking about it. She would go out on the front porch and say, "Praise the Lord!"

Her next door neighbor would shout back, "There ain't no Lord!"

During those days, my grandmother was very poor, so the neighbor decided to prove his point by buying a large bag of groceries and placing it at her door.

The next morning, Grandmother went to the porch and, seeing the groceries, said, "Praise the Lord!"

The neighbor stepped out from behind a tree and said, "I brought those groceries, and there ain't no Lord."

Grandmother replied, "Lord, you not only sent me food but you made the devil pay for it."

And my first post on my iPad! Because I don't feel like taking the 7 steps to the desktop. I'm sitting in front of a space heater shivering! I can't get warm! It's just (can't believe I wrote that) a cold. I feel miserable! Thanks Mom, she gave it to me:(
