Love Isn't Love Till You Give It Away
This is progress after 40 hours of stitching. It will go to Love Quilts Any Child Farm Quilt. I am enjoying this piece. Typical of Stoney Creek it is detailed and has a lot of backstitching but that doesn't bother me. It's from a very old Stoney Creek Book called "Love Spoken Here."
Dare I hope today will be our last day of 30's. Plus the sun will be out! Next few days will be 40's and a couple even 50's unless they change them as they are middle and end of the 7 day forecast.
An update on Ruth here. Her journey on earth is over. On Wed. March, 26, at 10:50 a.m.Ruth went to be with the Lord. Most of her family was with her, They had spent Tuesday night with her holding her hand, telling her they loved her, reading from the Bible and singing songs to her. She died with them singing her favorite hymn to her "How Great Thou Art." Beautiful homegoing for Ruth but so hard for her family.
Boy I hope our church looks better on Tuesday. I was there yesterday to work in the food pantry and it was a mess... Our windows desparately needed replaced and we also are getting air conditioning in our auditorium. The windows were so old that some would not shut all the way so it snowed inside. Plus we lost a lot of heat through those windows. So the windows are out with boards covering them and the basement is all full of the electrical supplies. I'm sure the workers are being asked not to be around on Tuesday. This funeral is going to be a big one. I guess it's at our church because she grew up there and her parents probably really wanted it. Ruth and John went to another really large church that they both worked at. Ruth as a teacher at the school and I'm not sure what John did. Plus people from their supporting churches will come and from their Mission Headquarters. Ruth and John were missionaries to Spain. She will be missed as she impacted a lot of lives.
Sunday we are having a Baby Shower for my niece, Heather. Her baby is due the end of April on our mom's birthday. So I say the baby has to be born either on mom's birthday or May 1. May 1 isn't too far from her due date. I said May as no one in our family has a birthday in May so we can have one.
Well until next time Happy Stitching!
