~ quilting bee ~the sheep stamp is going to Kathy in KY, the quilting package to Robin at the Knittin' Coop and the yarn to Barbara at Moore Whimsies. There are more things to give away -books, bag, tea, cup and saucer, etc.- so stay tuned.
The above quilt is a product from one of our quilting bee ladies where we meet Thursdays nights and everyone brings a project and some bring a snack to share. It's a great time and they have taught me a lot over these past three years. If you want to see a bit about where we meet, visit Thompson Valley Community Center.
Is anyone else feeling a bit blue about the current state of affairs? Is it just me? I think I need to pray more and read more Bible to shake this feeling of the world has gone mad. The folks in Arizona and Texas are doing the job the Feds won't do and US citizens are paying the price...with their livelihood and land; it hasn't come to their lives yet but it looks like that's only a matter of time.
The Cypress Times starts off their story thusly, "The bloodbath continues along our southern border and now word is coming in that Los Zetas, the highly trained killers formerly with the Gulf Cartel, have crossed into the United States and taken over at least two ranches in the Laredo, Texas area. I am receiving word that the owners of the ranches have evacuated without being harmed. ..."
Didn't Obama say, during his campaign, he was going to bring home our military in Afghanistan his first year in office? That didn't happen and now I know why. If our military is there, they can't be here...on US soil, protecting men and women, boys and girls...US citizens from this act of war on US soil! I don't claim to be an expert on world affairs but, as Aunt Bonnie used to say, " 'Deed, I believe I could do as well if not a bit better." God help us all!
Election day is coming up and I urge you to VOTE! Familiarize yourself with the issues, do NOT listen to what others say on topics...read and learn for yourself! Yes, it takes time but this is YOUR life and the future of generations to come; you owe it to yourself and them to make intelligent decisions based on hard core information. Please, vote.
