Hope

Hi friends! How are ya? I am doing great! Our friend Barbara..... what am I going to do with her?! She keeps spoiling me. She is so kind and generous. I received a surprise gift from her.
Isn't this wonderful? This is Pomegranate Pocket by Hands On Design and the linen too! I just love Cathy's designs. Thank you again Barbara.♥

Take a look here! I have received more pink fabrics for that Epic Pink Charm Quilt.
These pretty, pink fabrics are a gift from our friend Charlene, all the way down in Arizona. Click on her name to read about her very God pleasing work. Click on projects once you get there. What Charlene is doing is so amazing and inspiring. Thank you Charlene! I now need only 17 more pink fabrics!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been stitching yet another pink Quaker motif on the Black Chocolate linen.

I read A Robertson Family Christmas by Miss Kay Robertson. Had no intention to. Just saw it before leaving the library and thought, "Why not?". It was alright. It is a fictional account of a typical Christmas holiday for the famous family through the eyes of a troubled teen. So it is interesting, just not exactly deep.

I have also begun physical therapy, yep! The last time I did p.t. was 9 years ago. It did not help much. I have a very good feeling this time. My therapist, Leigh, is a true Godsend. She listens, understands and cares. We are working with strengthening my abdominal muscles and working my pelvic floor. No one has ever addressed these issues in the 10 years since I fell. I have hope. I always have hope!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your kind words and encouragement my friends. I truly appreciate you and thank God for you!

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
Be acceptable in Your sight,
O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Sounds good what your therapist is doing with you. I am sure there has been progress in this medical field and they know to do better things for you today than ten years ago. I hope it will do you good.
Enjoy your wonderful gifts.

I love the Pomegranate Pocket and the fabric too, such a lovely rich colour.

You are almost there with the pink fabric too! I wish I had some to send you but the little shop where I used to buy FQ of cotton has closed down and I don't have any pink in my stash.

Vonna, The Twisted Stitcher said...

I am so glad that you are going to PT and have a good feeling! Barbara is spoiling you! :)

Barbara said...

You are quite welcome Vickie and I do hope the PT works for you.

So close with all your pinks!! Soon you will have enough and I am just imagining you have all the current fabric displayed so you can admire the pink daily haha. :b

G'luck with your PT, it's so nice to have a doctor actually listen to you. It's your body after all!

Oh and love the little poodle dentist. That dachshund doesn't look to comforted though ahaha.
