Prayer, and progress

on my pay-it-forward gift, which I just realized I did not take a picture of :-(
And progress on a pattern I'm "reviewing" for a friend:
Windy day!  Just as soon as I got it situated, the wind picked up.
Anyway, it should be complete by March 17, my deadline, when I'll show you the whole thing.  More to come later.
I had to make a trip, poor me, to Franklin Mills, my all-time favorite LQS, to buy a more suitable border fabric.  I had a gray but it was too dark.  I settled on the Kona solid you see in the above picture which I think is lavender?  It matched the color in the Kaffe Fassett perfectly.
So, of course, while I was there I had to wait for some help on an unrelated matter and I made the mistake of browsing around.  These lovelies were calling out to me.  The store was closing in 10 minutes and they did not want to be left there all alone all night long in the dark, so I took pity on them and brought them home where they could snuggle up against my other lovelies.  Feast your eyes on these babies:
And I won a $10 gift certificate from ABCs of Quilting through the Fabshophop and it only cost me an additional $11 to obtain these Batik's which were 20% off:
Now to the most important part of my post, if you remember my dear Japanese friend, Kim, who I posted pictures of back on January 11, her family, i.e., sister, BIL, brother, pregnant niece, have not been heard from.  They live in Sendai, Japan, one of the hardest hit areas.  Please pray for them and her!  Of course, Kim is distraught with worry.  Another friend who lives in Tokyo is going to see if he can locate their whereabouts.  Many thoughts and prayers to all of Japan...        


  1. Love the fabrics and the sneak peak at the quilt you are working on! Beautiful! Your friend and her family will be in my prayers.

  2. I'll be praying for your friend, there are so many lives affected!
