Carolina Crossroads Pt 6
I am all caught up with this mystery now. I'm not trying to figure it out -- I'll wait for the surprise. I just put all the part 6 pieces on the design wall so I could get a picture. I can say that I'm already loving the scrappiness of this quilt. And I don't think it'll look too Christmassy with the red and green (although I should wait til the rest of the quilt is done before I decide that).
I'm glad to have caught up though --- I don't like being too far behind.
Back on January 1, Jeanne was talking about selecting a "theme" word to live by for the year. I thought this was quite interesting and was mulling it over when Cher mentioned virtually the same thing. Cher posted a link to this site which I followed. I've been going back and reading more at that site when I get a chance - I like what she has to say. Anyway, I've been mulling over my word for 2008 and I've decided on Compassion. This is to remind me that we are not the only ones going through some tough times, medically, or any other way.
One of the other things Christine Kane suggests is to make a list of 100 things you love. I think I'll try to do that a little at a time and share those things on my blog in lieu of, or in addition to my gratitudes.
Things I love:
1. Hearing almost 6 month old Will babbling in the background while Steph and I talk on the phone. (He must wonder why she talks into that device, but he answers her anyway!)
I'm grateful Bill and I were able to visit our old friend Clancy, who is in a coma and at the end of his life -- but I still believe he knew we were there. And I think we were a little comfort to his kids.
