All this talk about guns (here, Facebook, the news) has given me a headache. I don't think I can stand to get too heavily involved in this hot topic. I will write my letters to my representatives, and that is about it. I do want to say this last thing, though. It sure would be nice if the NRA would, for once, say something like: "We also abhor mass killings and will do what we can to help solve this horrendous problem." Wouldn't that be a breath of fresh air?
I finished this quilt top last night and just love how it turned out. I won't have time to quilt it until after Christmas. That will give me time to let the quilting ideas percolate in my brain for a little bit.
I also finished these two mug rugs. They are actually re-purposed pieces. They have two previous lives, which didn't work out well; I think their third attempt at life will be more successful.
Christmas is one week from today, and I so look forward to being with family, having fun, and trying to relax my heart from the ache it currently feels.
And for the grieving parents in Newtown, I say this:
"In life, in death, in life beyond death, God is with us. We are not alone."
