Throw Down ~

Some of the show and tell items from the throw down at Ali and Maria's workshop.  I thought I had taken a few more pictures but they are nowhere to be found.  So much talent!

The painting is finished (thank you son!) and the room switch has begun!  The new hooking room is not going to work out quite as planned.  The couch (which was a real bear getting through two doorways!) is longer than I thought.  I didn't want to put it against a wall, but to have it float (for lack of a better term) in the room with an antique table behind it to hold my sewing machine.  I want to be able to have the machine out instead of having to get it out and put it away each time I want to use it.  I am also trying to put ten pounds of stuff in a five pound room.  (My mom had a different way of saying that . . . lol!)  Bottom line is I just have TOO MUCH STUFF!  It is a work in progress and I will share when it's more together.

Please say a prayer for friend Theresa.  I've known this wonderful young lady for about seven years.  Just about six weeks ago I attended their housewarming party and Tuesday I am attending her 29 year old husband's funeral.  He was killed in a deer/vehicle accident and my heart just aches for her.  I hope she can find some comfort knowing he has provided the gift of life through organ donation.  Sad.  So very sad. 

Hugs :)

I enjoyed the rug show, so many beautiful pieces. It seems a lot of people have had accidents with deer lately, my heart breaks for her. I guess this time of year they are out before the winter hits.

So tragic for your friend. I hope she finds comfort to accept what seems so unfair.

Lauren I'm sorry that this tragic accident has happened to your friend's husband. Such a sad story for this young woman. His gift of organ donation will mean life for someone else.

I can only imagine the pain that Theresa is feeling at the moment. Her new home without her young husband. Christmas will be so difficult.
I hope that she will find some strength in her faith and through the love and caring of family and friends.

Thanks for showing us all the nice rugs.
I'll keep Theresa in my prayers.

Hi Lauren,
Oh how sad for your friend to lose her husband at such a young age, any age for that matter. Theresa is in my thoughts and prayers. The gift of organ donation is beyond generous. My sincere sympathy to her and her entire family.
