Blanket Toss

The beginning of the "blanket toss" wall hanging I am making for my mom----haven't done the border or any of the quilting yet - excited to see my progress on this one.

Thanks for coming by my blog and following me. Good luck in the giveaway. The wall hanging looks so fun. Can't wait to see it finished.

I know you do not know me...I saw your comment on "Thus Far" blog. I am a friend of Michelle's. I just wanted to encourage you as you go and visit your Dad this coming month. I was in the same situation as you many years ago with my Dad, except that I was only 2 hours away. I remember those times visiting with him after his diagnosis. I tried to share every last bit of my heart with him...we laughed and cried and it was probably some of the most rewarding times of my life. I pray that your visit is full of moments like these. I would encourage you to be honest with yourself and your Dad and then just try as hard as you can to be completly natural and enjoy the time you have. I remember he was so sick and I made him lay down on the couch and I snuggled right up against him like I used to when I was a little girl....I know it was special to both of us because stroked my hair the way he used to. The Drs. gave my Dad 6 months...he lived 9 and then went home to be with Jesus where now he has met every child I have ever lost and waits to be rejoined with his family. I just wanted you to know that I will be praying for you. The Lord is faithful to give us exactly what we need to handle every situation under the sun.
