Gifts

Just look at this amazing small quilt gift from Marcie.  Isn't it darling?
Marcie came by to visit on Friday and Saturday because she was visiting her daughter, Jennifer.  I was in pretty bad shape and they cleaned my bathrooms for me!  They haven't been that clean since last January and I can't tell you, girls, how grateful I am.  I also need cleaning tips for that downstairs bathroom because I can't get it nearly as clean as you did.  Comet?  Steel wool?  Jennifer also put lots of lights on my tree  so I am extra-grateful for that, too.  I probably shouldn't have pulled out the Christmas stuff since I still am feeling fairly bad.  

While I was snoozing in bed, helpless, Rembrandt chose Kaaren of Painted Quilt and Quilt Hollow as the giveaway winners; congratulations to you and for finding favor with that crazy cat.  If you can get your mailing addresses to me today, my friend Muriel who is visiting to help with chores might be able to get these ready; otherwise, it might take me a  few days to be able to get to it.  

I'll do an update after awhile on my health.  It isn't good and I think I need to let you all know because so many of you have been so kind to ask and send good wishes and I can tell you are kind of wondering why I don't say anything much about it.  

So talk to you later!  Karen

How nice of Marcie and daughter to clean for you. I know you are not feeling good. And sorry that you are going through so much.

I have your book "Bountiful Life" right beside my computer. I think of you every time I see the cover of it.

The little quilt is beautiful and I just know each stitch was done with love. They are definitely good friends if they cleaned your bathroom! I, too, hope you feel better.
