Saturday’s Song: Wake Up Dancin’. Slow Stitching: Finished 30's Table Topper . Stash Report.

Saturday’s Song:  Wake Up Dancin’

Last month was a tough one.  I found out a relative passed away....she and I wrote back and forth from the time I learned how to write.  As some of you are aware of, my memory is not the best.  I would tell my children, "If you ever want to know my secrets, call her.  She remembers them all and has my letters to prove it!"  LOL!  
A dear friend lost one of her own best friend's to Lou Gehrig's disease.  
Last week, a dear friend's mother passed away after a long illness. 
During these times, I often turn to 1 Corinthians 15:55:
This verse has brought me great comfort on so many different occasions.  Now, along with Gordon Mote's song, "Wake Up Dancin' ", I'm even more encouraged.  When my time comes, I hope my family turns to this verse and song.  
For now, I love you my dear friends, you know who you are.  You are in my prayers.

Slow Stitching:  Finished 30's Table Topper
I thought this was going to be a baby quilt, but after stitching on it for a while, I’ve decided the yellow sashing lends itself perfectly as a Spring Table Topper or even, as my husband suggested, a wall hanging!
Progress continues on my days of the week dish towels. Thursday is finished and Friday is coming!

With the finished brown baby quilt as well as the 1930's baby quilt turned table topper, I my numbers are looking even better!  Next week I should have a larger finish as I'm hoping to finish binding the matching quilt.

Your comments are so appreciated! I try to respond to each one via email!


  1. The dish towels are looking good. I'm so sorry for your loss.

  2. I am so sorry you have had a horrible month with the passing of your loved ones. As for your stitching your little quilt is pretty and I always love to see a sweet Holly Hobbie-ish girl being stitched.

  3. Yes, death has lost it's sting! Yay! There is hope. You're getting quite a bit done. Baby quilt, table topper, wall hanging--that is a multi-purpose sized quilt! I'm looking forward to next week's larger yet finish!

  4. I am so sorry you have had so many losses lately. My brother passed away last month and I am still stinging from that. Your dish towel is so pretty.

  5. Sorry for so many loses in a short span. The yellow sashing gives the top pizazz. Embroidery is becoming popular again.

  6. Sorry for your losses. It’s especially overwhelming when they come in a short time span. The yellow sashing gives the quilt pizazz. A good choice. Embroider is certainly gaining in popularity.

  7. I’m very sorry for your losses. I was with an old friend the other night and we spoke of those we’ve known who have passed away. I suppose with the gift of a long life comes many sorrows but it is comforting to have faith that they are now in a better place with our Father.
