Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

We're embarking on a new journey in our household. Tomorrow I'm flying to Texas and on Tuesday my mom and I will be driving back here. I won't bore you with all the details; she's been suffering with some short term cognitive impairment for a few months now. My sister has been bearing the burden of caring for our mom and simply can't handle it anymore. As a family and with advice from her doctor we've decided that she should come stay with us for a few months through the holidays until Feb/Mar. Time will tell but we won't be surprised if it becomes a permanent move.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Life has been full of challenges for so many this year - illness, finances, loss of loved ones, etc. Please take a few minutes to be thankful for all the gifts you have in your life. There's so much 'stuffus' in our lives that simply doesn't matter (really it just doesn't) - we can't do anything about yesterday, we don't know what tomorrow holds, however today is NOW. Enjoy every minute of today - things can change very quickly. I've been trying to live my days this way for a couple of months and it's working for me.

In Friendship

(I'll be back to visit with you in a few days)

Under Construction

(no building permit - shhhh)

Seriously you have to go visit and see what she's been up to - go now - I'll wait. :-)

Are you back?

I'm going to assume that you are!

I've been in the construction business for a few days but without a building permit. teehee!!!!

Here are pieces parts awaiting transportation to the building site:

In the construction faze:

Two little houses needing some finishing touches - giftees for a few friends!
Can't tell you - sorry!

This is my Christmas Village waiting to be quilted. I have to make three more just like this one. I'll be in construction mode for a few more days. Whew!

Remember my scraps from my 12 Days of Christmas BOM from The Fat Quarter Shop?

Look at my Christmas Village ready to become a sweet pillow!

To create your 'hood, town, village, etc you'll need a Schnibbles Full House pattern by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.

Thanks for popping in! Come again soon.

In Friendship!

Sunshine & More

I like to say that we live on the "Surface of the Sun" (the AZ desert) - very, very hot summers. :-) I don't know whether or not I should admit that I do get tired of the sun - too much sunshine. I crave overcast, cloudy, rainy days. I crave colder days, too. Silly I know! LOL Ironically, we're having a "Darlene Day" today - woohoo!!!!

I found a major ray of sunshine in my mailbox a few days ago! A very dear bloggy friend sent the little quilt top to 'bring sunshine into my challenging world'. I was very touched and must admit to tear filled eyes. Thank you, my friend you've truly touched my heart.

Yesterday Mr Daze celebrated a very special birthday and our daughter Kristie and her family put together a fabulous surprise party. We enjoyed cake and ice cream with lots of wonderful friends. The best surprise for Mr Daze was his much younger sister and her family shared the day with us - we hadn't seen them in at least 9 years. After the party we took him to dinner. A wonderful day - he's still on Cloud 9 today. LOL

Thank you for visiting - please come again soon.

In Friendship!
