With my Mom on the mend...I can't Thank you all enough for the prayers, comments and e-mails of love and concern. What I didn't inform you all of, was the fact that after all the GOOD NEWS of no blockage found after the Heart Cath...Well, that evening due to the heart cath procedure a blood clot when to my Mom's brain causing her to have a Mild Stroke. She will be OK, Praise The LORD. She has vision, balance and comprehension issues, but the doctors and therapists have said we should see a change for the better within 6 months.

Thanks for the update on your mom, LORi! Continued prayers are being sent for a speedy recovery for her. We have 2 parents with critical heart and lung concerns so we know how hard it can be. But God is good and his grace abounds!

Those are 2 stunning projects!

Lori, I just love these designs. Your gingham red bow is so perfect. I struggle to get my bows neat and symmetrical so can I ask how you acheived it?? Maybe it's just a skill I lack.
