Good News/Bad News



The good news is I finished these little quilt tiles for Caron at And Still Counting. Her project is worth reading about. Check it out at her blog. With these tiles I honor and remember ALL those who are dying in Iraq: USA Americans, insurgents, Iraqis who are trying to maintain/protect/recover their own country, and far too many innocent civilians. The bad news is all the terrible things we humans do to each other.

On another front, the good news is that my upcoming weekend was booked solid, and now it has freed up. I was going to attend an all-weekend workshop at church. I'm willing to do it, and it will be interesting, when it gets re-scheduled. But I was sad about giving up my whole weekend (which is supposed to be sunny and beautiful). Lucky for me, the workshop was cancelled, so I can now reclaim my weekend time. However, it came at a price (the bad news part) -- our pastor was going to lead the workshop but can't because she has been ill following surgery. The doctors just put her on two-week bed rest. I'm sad that she is having such a rough recovery and sad that her bad news has become my good news. I'll pray for Penny and a quick recovery to strength and health. Any readers who are inclined to pray may join me in praying for Penny, if you wish.

Meanwhile I intend to enjoy a beautiful weekend coming up and will be able to fit in some sewing time which makes me happy!

Carol - Sending good thoughts your way. Thanks so much for the blocks.
The world is a crazy mixed bag of good and bad.

I'm glad that you got your weekend back, but not the circumstances that brought it about. Hope you do something really fun with your time and have lots to show at the end of it.
