Wilma, I am back. I have a quilt that I started when my grandson was born, it took me 5 years to embroidery. Then I pieced it together and put it away and kinda forgot about it. All this was done by hand. Got it out last year before I went to go see the kids at Thanksgiving and put it in a new quilt plastic case and it was just fine, when I left. Thought when I got home I would finish it. When I got home and I opened it , somehow water had collected inside of it and molded it. I was in tears, all that hard work and washed down the drain. I got peeved , and I told the Devil if he thought for one moment he was going to destroy it he had better back up for I was going to bleach the embroidery part and if it turned white so be it! I worked to hard to just throw it away. I bleached it and all the mold came out and it has its own colors just beautiful. I replaced the other blocks with some blue check . Now my question is , I can not find in my price range the material I want to put on it but I can find a light blanket from Walmart for the back. If I put the quilt Batting inside would not a blanket be perfect for the Backside,if I tack it? I really want to get this finished by next May, for he graduates then.

Bootsie: Are you planning on tying it or quilting it? If you're tying it that would work to use a thin blanket and then just attach a binding around the edge. Another option would be to buy a flat sheet in a colour that matches if you plan on quilting it. Hope that helps!

HI WILMA ~ yes, it is "long time no see", but we are so glad that you came back to visit us again. Have sent up prayers for your mother and brother (will put them on the current prayer list on page 2 of the Prayer Warrior's thread too). Sounds like things are going well for your sons; GOD is good!

BOOTSIE ~ cukes & toms are usually sliced baby cucumbers & tomatoes; often make a salad of them as they are a favorite. I eat a baby cucumber (or cuke, for short) almost every day; same for tomatoes too. If I can't get baby cukes, I use field or english, whatever is available. Good for you saving that quilt; I have always admired those who have the patience to make one of those. I am back to crocheting squares for blankets.

GARY ~ yes, we did get the porch of our cottage up and the roof shingled; and the roof of the camper fixed as well. Those were the two things we had planned; plus the grass cutting and I spread some sand around to fill in more holes. We also planted a few more trees this year to replace those we lost from drought last spring; and DH wants to make a fire pit like my Dad did on our lot too. My crab apple tree had its first apples and they were a deep dark red by the end of August; I think we got almost 2 dozen, but the birdies got some (that is OK though as we don't mind sharing; and each year, we should get more).


We have more here today; we get every spring and fall here so this is expected. We had some good fortune come our way yesterday as well; answer to prayer really ... I don't know if I mentioned that our washing machine stopped working; and during my morning devotions yesterday, I was asking the LORD what I should do (how & when to buy a new one or a set, etc).

Then, not less than 30 minutes later a man called DH on the phone, and told him that he just bought a new laundry set and would we like to have the old one. DH asked him what was wrong with them; and he said "just minor things" but his wife wanted a new set. So he brought them over and he lifted them off his truck all by himself: talk about Hercules!

Anyhow, at first DH was hesitant, but I really felt a prompting that we should try the washer out; and it works better than mine did. Then we tried out the dryer and at first the barrel didn't turn, but again I felt an urging to try it a third time and then it worked just fine. DH thinks it was becuz he turned it on its side to get it into the house; as he is much smaller and had some task to get the old ones out and the newer ones in. Poor DH; felt kinda bad for him but he got them set up all by himself. The man was correct, minor things like noise when a cycle ends and the fabric softener release not working; but heck, my last one didn't even have that. Now, this will give us enuff time to save up the $$$ to buy ourselves a new set too. So PTL, for answered prayer & generous neighbors: GOD bless 'em ...

We got at least three baskets of green beans from our garden; I had only planted three small patches, so that is pretty good. I put most of them up in the freezer for the winter. Next year, I will be planting much more since they grow so well here; and maybe even try a few tomato plants too.

Gonna go make some tea now, so have a great day everyone ... Rosebud

Good Morning Ya'll.
We've sure been getting plenty of rain here in TX!
Just wanted to share that I have not binged in the past few days and I feel great. I have stuck to writing things down and portion control. This week has been a little hectic at work, so my hubby and I havent started our walking, but I have my pedometer with me during the day, since I do light walking at work, and that helps.

I have been doing well at bringing my lunch. No more McDonald's! It is hard because it is so easy just to walk down the block and get something from there. Thats the only disadvantage of my work!!! Everybody does it, so you get caught up in doing it as well.

I'm glad everybody is doing well. Happy to once again being able to share with everyone!!

Take care and have a blessed day!

HI SUGA ~ nice to see you drop by again; and good for you for giving healthy living a good go once again. Just try to make small changes so that you are not overwhelmed -- add in one or two each week; and then pat yourself on the back for every one you accomplish.

May I give you a few ideas: 1) have fish at least once a week working up to twice each week 2) have some broccoli 1-2 times a week 3) have a salad of any kind at least once a day 4) take a multi-vitamin with minerals each day to make up for food deficiencies 5) have a green veggie 2-4 times a week ie asparagus, spinach, kale, chard, collards, green beans, etc 6) cut your salt & sugar way back 7) go for 10 minute walk 8) do some stretches each day.

Just pick 1 or 2 of those things and incorporate them into your week. I could give you more, but you get the idea. I picked up a book recently and many of these ideas came from it. I know I won't want to do all of them, but it offers many little ideas that can help us work towards optimum health.

BOOTSIE ~ glad we don't have those grasshoppers here; sorry to hear that they are back, but maybe you could let your chickens & ducks eat some of them for snacks ... I'm sure they would appreciate it ... I bet they have devoured your greens. Well, at least you have some this year; and we'll pray that by next year that they' ll be gone (esp when the cooler weather comes). One good thing about Texas is that you can garden much longer than many areas can.


We went up town to pick up a few things I forgot earlier and some fresh foods too; so I got some extra walking in today too. I was able to return some air beds that I bought for our camper that were too big for it; but we hadn't opened them so they graciously took them back for us. Next spring, I will get another roll of foam and make a cover out of a flat sheet instead. My Dad found some foam mattresses in a hideaway bed that we hadn't even noticed; enuff for one bed for now, so I just need enuff for one more.

We awoke to more today, but that stopped so we were able to go shopping. DH says that we now have very light sprinkles again; glad it stopped long enuff for us to go out. Well, it's time to go put dinner on; have a fantabulous Friday tomorrow ... Rosebud

Please pray for the residents of San Bruno, Ca. They suffered a terrible tragedy yesterday. A natural gas pipeline exploded causing huge fires. 53 homes completely destroyed, 120 damaged, several deaths and many injuries. There was no warning so no time to do anything but try to get out.

Praying Bargo, Please keep us up to date, for I guess I fell asleep watching the news and missed it. That is almost like being bombed cannot even imagine going through something like that.

Have sent up ^PRAYERS^ for the people of San Bruno, California -- for comfort, healing, and restoration, plus all the help they need to rebuild their lives once again ...

We had another busy day; went up to our lot and took our double lawn chair with us. While DH made some small stairs, I had the task to stain the chair. It took all afternoon, but I did get a few coats on it and it looks great. The fella did a terrific job and it is very comfortable to sit in. I am glad that I got the base coats on so quickly before any precip comes; and I'm hoping it will stay away all night so that it can dry really well.

We got home pretty late and had a quick, light dinner tonight. Boy, are we both sore or what; will sleep really well tonight for sure. Hope all our friends here have a nice restful Sunday tomorrow ... Rosebud

I had a great day yesterday. Went to the gym with my niece and worked out for almost 2 hours. She was very excited to show me her gym. Then we had lunch and went shopping for shower gifts. We went to a shower for my soon to be DIL and had a fun time. TOday it's all about relaxing, going to church, etc.

Have a great day.

Oh, my mom is doing much better - still coughing a lot but doing better. Thanks for your prayers.

HI GALS

Sorry I haven't posted but I have checked in daily. I am just so busy from my commute but that may ease in a week or so as I start a job closer to home, if all goes well and my boss feels comfortable about having some of my guys finish the one I am on right now. The one we are on now is far more important for our company's future work possibilities that the one I would go to. I will eventually get there just maybe not for another month when I finished the Beverly Hills project.

One day I'll get around to posting a link to a project we did last year that is on you tube...a very cool car dealership.

Today at church we had our 9-11 Remembrance day...what a great day! We had at least 500-600 people. Military and police and fire fighters. We shed tears for those from our church that have lost their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan

I worked, along with my brother and bil, on a house the church owns that we rent out yesterday and this morning before service. I wasn't able to help with the set up this year just donations of soda and pies but I could see all those helping from the windows of the house...awesome! We are blessed

Great pics on my facebook that the church took if you pm me I can friend you if you want to see them if you facebook.

I have a lot to do tonight but I wanted to check in and say welcome back to SUGA and my dear old friend WILMA! She was one of the very first when I came here many years ago that I connected with here at Christian Encouragers...

and to remind you how God works.....I said a prayer for my friend the very morning she posted....asking God to be with her and her family and hoping all was well....isn't HE amazing!! He answered me right here that very night!!

oh...to be honest...I have said the same prayer for past CE members that have not posted....oh well...WILMA did!!!

be good

Wow Gary! That gave me shivers. God is good. It's hard to know how to deal with both the good and the bad when it comes at the same time. Maybe God does that so we don't get discouraged.

I have been exercising faithfully. I don't know what's happening to me but I love it. I can already see results and am looking forward to trying on the dress I bought for the wedding. Hopefully it fits better.

Have a great day!

YES, GARY -- OUR GOD IS AN AWESOME GOD ~ and I think that WILMA's spirit was listening that day too ... we understand that you have long days with long commutes. We are trying to hold the fort down here while you are busy ... as many things do ... that too will pass ... eventually!


WILMA ~ how many times I have prayed for someone and they call me right afterward; happens all the time. Or like GARY, I will pray or wonder how someone is and they will come back and post again. Sadly, some people I really liked have stopped coming; guess life has them in a different direction, but I am amazed at how many do come back after awhile.


As you probably read on a previous post; my washing machine had stopped working for me, so I was praying about how and when we should buy a new one -- and about 30 minutes later, a man called my DH and told him that he had bought a new set for his wife and would we want the old set? He even brought them over to our place within 5 minutes; and we don't know these people -- they just happen to live behind us. Anyways, I used them again today, and they worked perfectly (well, except for a bit of noise and the softener dispenser). I mean they wash and dry perfectly -- way better than my old set did ... GOD IS GOOD! Now, we will have lots of time to save up for a new set too.


We had a bit of on and off here; yesterday, we had some and in spurts ... and sometimes we had both at the same time ... an interesting phenomena really. Tomorrow, we have to go to the city as DH is having that cat scan to check his brain -- re: the memory problems. His appt is later in the day, so we have decided to go a bit earlier, and do some shopping while we are there too.

Oh, dinner is ready; gotta go ... syl, Rosebud

No baby goats today, training another one to be milked and so far she is doing good. Helped at the community house with the Garage sale. Worked at the store all afternoon. My husbands clothes came in and they sent two shirts that was to small and only one pair of pants when i ordered two pairs so I could get the discount. Oh well we put the two large shirts for sale in our store instead of going to all the trouble sending them back. My poor husband has just been wearing rags for shirts the last 4 months, and it is his birthday. Now he will have shirts with pockets and no patches to wear! Going to town tomorrow , I think if Goats don't start giving birth.
