Dealing with it....

It's been a long week of sadness. Besides my granddaughter my friend lost her 35 year old son this week. Stress does me in. I've been dealing with frozen joints from the RA all week. Today I'm done fighting it. I'll just sit with ice packs on my shoulders until the flare up goes away.

Not having any brights to make Alyssa a quilt, I asked my friends on the HGTV board to please cut some fabric squares for me .... These ladies always come through when you need help! Here is some of the fabric's and blocks they sent to me along with Debbie and Diane from

I still have a wagon full of envelopes to open! Now I have a stash of brights so the girls will be getting purses, makeup cases and covers for their phones and tablets! I just need to get my arms working again so I can put this together.  Thanks to all the ladies for the wonderful help!

I'm so lost today

I can't get my mind on anything but the question, "What happened"?  The very last posting my granddaughter made on March 31st to Face Book said, "Different isn't Wrong".  That might say a lot if we try to understand it. It might be a clue to her suffering.

I've decided I need to work through this since no one can see her right now. I asked my friends on HGTV for blocks in any size but they have to be brights. I have no brights at all. Brights are just not my thing. I think making her a quilt will help me until she can have visitors. I'll leave spaces so family and friends can sign it and write her a message. The last quilt I made for her was Sun Bonnet Sue so it's time to replace that one anyway.

Up date on Alyssa

She woke up, that's good. Two days in a coma, that's bad. She is still so saturated with medicine that it will be days before they can evaluate the damage. They said the brain has a way of healing it's self. The screaming and fear of things coming out of the walls will go away as her blood clears all that she took. She responds to her name but thinks her bones are all broken.  Prayer maybe the only thing to help this child now. Thanks to all of you for praying for her.

Heavenly Father, watch over my precious granddaughter. Give her a safe place where she can heal. Help her and other teens to work through the evil's that bother them. Thy will be done...Amen

Hug your teens, they just might need it

This has been a very sad day. Yesterday my 13 year old Granddaughter Alyssa tried to take her own life. When they found her it was too late to pump her stomach. She is in a coma and there is nothing anyone can do but wait.

I just can't dear sweet child

Maybe some of you can help this beautiful child

I'm going to put this on my blog because with all the medical problems I have, I know how important research and experimental trails are. They are asking each person who has already given to the fund to ask 3 people to give $22.00 to make the goal for this medicine.

I thought if 6 friends would give $10.00 I would be doing my share by asking and of course I'll be giving my $22.00....the price of a meal at Olive Garden.  No big companies have stepped in to's not a sure thing and this child could be lost anyway so there might not be any big flag waving for a company to cash in on.....but it's her only chance and a chance for the 2000 other children world wide who get this every year. So far the donations that have come in have mostly been $10.00 to $50.00 but they have raised 1 million to get this started. They need the rest, another million or so, by October.

Read her story. Time is running out. within the next year she could stop talking and walking and even worse effects of the disease will come with that. It would be nice for some of the quilting ladies to donate the price of just one yard of fabric. This could be your daughter, or granddaughter or neighbor....we just never know what will come knocking at our door.

Difficult times.....

I haven't been posting because of some difficult times I'm having right now. I hope to soon be able to pull some sewing back out and have something to post about.

It's strange how your mind drifts too other's when you find yourself in a mess. So I just want to post to some of the people who have visited my life and gave it sunshine. Know that I'm thinking of you.

Gina, my friend from Scotland....I so miss your posts about Gema, your garden, sewing and your humor. I hope life has come to some happiness for your family.

Rita, the seeds you sent can't be planted in my own garden this year so I planted them at Katie's so I can enjoy them. I hope you are well and looking forward to a full summer of fun.

Darlene....You haven't posted since 2011 on FB or your blog. I miss your posts and treasure your little quilt. I often wonder what happened to you. Know you are thought of often.

And made us laugh, and we cried for you too. Such a young life gone in such an awful way. I know many people think of you often...know my prayers are still going up for you and I know you have found peace.
