A Healing Day


The topic at church today was forgiveness. It helped me a lot and gave me plenty to think about. It's a very hard thing to do, but it's important to work on it and practice it.

Thank you so much for your wonderful comments and the emails I received today. You were all very helpful, even if you think you weren't. Relationships aren't easy, and it helps to bounce things off other people.

It was a beautiful day here in Minnesota! The Vikings won their game (barely)! What a nail biter! Great game to have on while I sewed. Later Charles and I went out for a walk, and it was so nice and pretty. Amazing how just one little mile walk can make my whole self feel cleansed.



I got a LOT of sewing done this weekend, and that was good. I needed to get some things done for various deadlines. This baby quilt is going to a sale of hand-made items that will benefit Special Ed children in St. Paul.

The toys have umpteen places to go... I want to keep making more so I can donate them to all the places I have in mind. I'm having fun with my Monster Mash.




This one was a complete accident. It looked nothing like this when I started out... I realized my first idea wouldn't work. I tried to back-track and sew some pieces on while it was only half ripped apart. I thought it was going to be a total failure - it looked like a mess - but it turned into this little guy, and I quite like him! He is a complete happy accident.



I love this poor little Sad Sack. He needs someone to love him and hug him up, don't you think?

Now it's time to watch "Amazing Race" on TV - the one show Charles and I usually sit down and watch together - and then make sure I'm ready for another full week of work. Get, ready, get set... GO! Off to work we go.

Isn't it interesting how the message at church sometimes speaks directly to us. I am sending you lots of good wishes on this cold morning.
