This blog is about my life from the time I had tongue cancer surgery until the present. I love to sew and embroider so I will be adding more topics about my favorite things. If you want to read about my tongue cancer surgery and recovery, click on Archives 2008.

In the early morning hours of December 24, 2011, our church burned to the ground. We were on vacation in Nashville, but we received some early phone messages that it was burning. I got on my computer to see pictures and videos of the devastation. It was horrible! It was sad! It upset the whole town! This was the old church.
After the fire. So sad!
The Groundbreaking for the new church last spring. It was pouring rain!
God has a plan for everyone and everything. This is the new church in which we are hoping to move into by Easter.
We are all excited to move into the new building. I can't wait to see it all! Sunday School classes have been being held all over town. At least we had the old gym that was refurbished to use for a sanctuary in the mean time. Thanks for looking!
My granddaughter will have her 7th birthday in April, and I've started on some things to put in her birthday box for her American Girl dolls.
I love quilts, and I love piecing them, but I'm certainly not a quilter. However, I do like to play around a little with free motion quilting. I'm glad you can't see the details on these quilts, because they are not up to par. They were still fun to make.
The embroidered blocks came out of the stash of a sewing friend. She had made 7 so I made one more in order to have 4 for each quilt.
The sashing came from Hancock's clearance bin for $2.00 a package. I didn't use them all plus there were some aqua fabrics in it also. The best thing is they were already cut! :)
I had the pink backing in my stash, and I didn't even use any batting because I didn't have any. I just put a piece of muslin in between the layers. After all, they are for "dolls"!
