This has been one crazy week!

My grandson was diagnosed with Tuberous Sclerosis a rare genetic disorder that causes noncancerous (benign) tumors ― unexpected overgrowths of normal tissue. He was discharged on Saturday, but has been back to the ER three times since then. I had his 5 siblings until Monday night. I took them home and ended up going to ER with DIL. The main reason for the ER visits is because it is taking awhile to figure out dosage of the medicine. His last ER visit was this morning. We are praying that this time the dosage is okay.

@SEWINGMAMACDS Thank you for the author suggestions. I have read all of Colleen Coble's books and loved them! I will definitely be lifting up your grandson in prayer. I am praying for him, his family, and wisdom for his doctors & nurses!

@LADAWNC77 - I like Christian mystery and Christian historical fiction. I have a lot of favorite authors. Some of my favorites is Brock & Brodie Thoene, Michael Phillips, Lori Wick, Janette Oke, Wanda Brunstetter. I am currently reading a series by Colleen Coble.

@2BTHINMAMMA - continuing to pray for good results for your DD.

@EJOY-EVELYN - Praising and praying with you.

Please pray for my youngest grandson (2mo old). He has been having small seizures the last couple of weeks. They took him to ER yesterday and he was admitted into hospital for testing to find out what is going on. I am taking care of his 5 siblings.

Yes, because that is how I was taught. I am going to hand sew the difficult squares then try quilting with the sewing machine on the nine patch squares.

I love to read Christian mystery like Dee Henderson and Terri Blackstock. Right now I am reading Karen Kingsbury books. I am trying to find another author to read. Feel free to send suggestions my way!! What do you like to read?

LaDawn - Do you do all hand sewing on your quilts? Also, I saw on your page that you are on a Bookworm team. What types of books do you like?

I worked more on the quilt yesterday. Last night was our Community Group Bible Study. We host it every week. Today, is more sewing and working in the basement. We have a couple of weeks to get the basement ready for my daughter and her family to move in.

Glad to have you here LaDawn. I love that you are homeschooling. I homeschooled all 4 of my kids and am helping homeschool my grandkids.

Saturday was a fun day. My sisters took my out on sister day for my 60th birthday. We went to the Colorado Quilt Musuem. It was a lot of fun. Then went up to Georgetown for High Tea. Then walked the town. After that we went to Casa Bonita. We realized that we gone to Georgetown for my mom's 60th birthday. It was a good day full of memories and laughter.

Sunday, my husband and I worked more in the basement. He had worked on cleaning out a closet on Saturday while I was gone. We got a lot accomplished.

Today, I got all the pieces cut out for a Saruni quilt. My sister had given me the orange I needed to finish the binding. Now I am going to sit and do the handsewing.

Hi everyone!! I am LaDawn. I am 42 and live in Oklahoma. My husband and I are blessed to adopt siblings a year ago. They are ages 15 and 10. I homeschool both of them. We have 3 dogs.

I did weigh 260. As of this morning I weighed 248.8. I still have a long way to go, but am looking forward to this journey with you all.

My sister just called and now we need 10+ quilts by Thanksgiving to send over to Kenya for Saruni International. I also have 6 kilts to make by Christmas. Plus Christmas dresses/shirts for 10 grandkids. Things are going to be crazy here!

I like having the YOU CHOOSE challenge. It will help me stay focused on mini goals and hopefully loose some weight even with all the craziness that will be going on the next three months!

Elsie, that is a beautiful meme. where do you find all of these?

Carrie, what a weekend you had! That is exciting about buying a car and your dd and sil. Will pray for them. The work of Saruni International sounds very interesting. Thankful for their work.

A group from a church that we do missions work at every August is sending a group of women to a place in Alabama that rescues women and girls from human trafficking. Sad that we need places like Saruni and The Well House but thankful they are doing the hard work they are doing.

Good Morning! We had a busy weekend! I didn't get much exercise in because last Friday, we drove to Albuquerque and bought a car then drove back home on Saturday (14 hours in car-we live in Colorado). I had 3 hours home, then headed up to Greeley (3 hour round trip) to go to a fund raiser dinner for Saruni International. Saruni rescues girls in Kenya from early marriages and FGM. My sister and I make quilts for the girls. Sunday we taught sunday school. I took a nap in the afternoon. When I got up I worked on a quilt for Saruni. We need at least 5 quilts by December to send over there.

Also, my daughter and her husband are preparing to go to Romania as missionaries. They sold their house on Friday - closing will be Nov 8 after which they will move in with us until they leave for Romania. How long that will be depends on how fast they can finish raising their support.

Wow, Carrie, you do love milk! I like milk, too and have had to limit it b/c of the diabetes. I have a friend that is convinced all dairy is bad for weight loss. I disagree and truly hope she is wrong! lol Cheering you on to enjoying your 1 glass of milk.

It's going to be hot here today - 90s. I may be regretting not having had my car's AC fixed. It will be an expensive fix that I decided could wait since we were so close to not needing AC anymore. Little did I know it would be a warm Sept and Oct. It's really not a big deal. My Dad told the kids that we are using the "old 4-40" method...4 windows down and drive 40 mph. emoticon

I am looking forward to the challenge. I love milk and I know I shouldn't drink so much, so I am going to work on limiting the amount I drink to one glass a day (normally I drink 4-5 glasses a day).

Hi all,

Hope you can join the team challenge that will start next Monday (10/7).

Things are going ok here. Crazy but ok. Had a nice surprise this morning of the scale moving down 5 lbs! WHAT?! I was stunned. It has been saying the same few numbers for weeks.

Jenn - I am glad to see you back. Health issues are always scary and frustrating.

Elsie - I hope things settle down for you.

It has been a busy summer for me too. My 15th grandchild was born this week. I have been taking care of his 5 siblings, so it has been very busy around here.

I am frustrated with my weight. I have been on a plateau all summer. I have tried different things like upping my walking, being extra diligent on my food intake, but to no avail. My weight just hasn't budged. At least I haven't gained.

I do look forward to a challenge. Haven't got any ideas yet, but will think on it.

I, too, have been MIA for a long time but hoping now that school is back in session and I have some quiet time, I will be up to posting more often. Things have been a zoo here this summer and my nerves have been stretched to the limit. I have only gotten this far with God's grace and strength. I'm still very temperamental and get tired and frustrated easily but that will be getting better as I am able to settle my nerves down.



Take care........Elsie

Sorry I have been MIA for so long. I needed the time to deal with my heart and diabetes issues. I am fine though. Cardiologist says a svt will happen again (lovely) and that when I want to have an ablation that will fix it but Praise God I have had no more episodes and dr seemed very surprised so I am in no hurry for an ablation at this point. I do take a heart med. Diabetes seems to be controlled by meds and diet. I am working with a nutritionist as well. Lots of appointments between the two things. Plus my daughter has been having stomach pain for months and we are working with a pediatric GI to find cause. My dmil is going through another cancer scare (seems nearly constant with her anymore). Lots of other stuff going "wrong." But God is faithful. He told us that there would be trials, etc in this world and that He had overcome the world and be our ever present help in times of trouble so ultimately my family and I are good! I have missed you all. Hope to do a fun challenge soon! Any suggestions?

I finished the Ladybug top, made the backing and the binding. Then made a coordinating pillow and doll quilt. I also worked in the yard picking up sticks that were blow down from hailstorm last week and then pruned the lilac bushes.

The weekend was extremely busy. I had my son's 5 grandkids from Thursday to Friday night. On Friday we took them up to the homeschool convention and watched a neat chemistry presentation. The three older stayed with their parents and we brought the two younger home with us.

Saturday, we went to Pikes Peak Celtic Festival (the 2 grandkids came with us). It was a beautiful morning. However, about 1:00 a big rainstorm blew in and we holed up in the clan tent for the next 1.5 hours. When there was a little break, we sprinted to the car and headed home. My son picked up the 2 kids a couple of hours later.

Sunday, after church, all my kids and grandkids came over celebrate Father's Day, Mother's Day and 5 birthdays. It was a fun time.

Today, I spent the morning "mending" 4 outfits from the grandkids. Then this afternoon I worked on the ladybug quilt. I finished the main portion of the top. I just have to add two borders.

I am tired and ready to relax tonight.

Elsie - Glad you are progressing well.

Jenn - Praying for you. What did the cardiologist say?

I have been working in the yard getting flowers planted and mowing the lawn. Now I need to concentrate on getting items ready for Pikes Peak Celtic Festival on June 15.

Yesterday, my husband and I went for a 20 min walk. We are going to try and put this in our evening routine.

Carrie, so glad you had such a great vacation and congrats on doing so well with your weight loss! That is awesome!
Your quilts sound lovely!

Memorial Day I ended up in the ER with rapid heart rate. We tried everything we could to slow it down, nothing worked. I see a cardiologist tomorrow. I have also been diagnosed with diabetes. Found out yesterday. I am disappointed and overwhelmed at the moment. It will get better. I know God is an ever present help. I lean on Him.

Good Evening! I am back from a wonderful, relaxing vacation. It was just what I needed. I am going to try and blog with pictures about the trip. I am excited I only gained one pound from the trip even after eating out for every meal and having potatoes, breads, spaghetti etc. I was even down 2.8 lbs this morning!

When we got home Wednesday afternoon, I unpacked and did laundry. Yesterday, since I haven't worked on a quilt for a month, I sat down and worked on the 10 ladybug blocks. I finished them this morning. Afterwards I started working on 9 Cross Rosebud blocks. I got nine 9-patch blocks done and 36 4-patch blocks done. (they are all part of the Cross Rosebud block.

Today, I also mowed the lawn. We also had to move my fabric storage in the quilting room because my husband had to replace the cut off valve for the sprinkler. So, putting it all back will be another project later.
