More Chubby Chicks

I kind of chuckled when I read what I put as the title of this post. I mean the quilt not me and my friends!!

One of the CL's stitched the binding on and PTM hand turned it. I wanted to show you because I love how the polka dots look on this. You can see that I wrote directly on the back of the quilt for the label. This will be going to St. Patrick's Catholic Church for their raffle. I hope I can purchase some tickets. I left it with our priest tonight so he can deliver it to the other parish. Fly away little chickies!!

This is a quilt made from blocks given to the church group by a man named Jack. His mother passed away and he donated all her quilting supplies to us, including many partially finished quilts, some quilt tops and blocks. These were orphan so one of the CL's put it together. I gave it to the pastoral associate for a woman undergoing extensive chemo in our parish. I hope she is comforted by this.

I have a lot of stuff going on in my own life right now and am praying it all turns out well. My dad needs to have some testing done and at this time I am asking you to keep him in your prayers. I hope and pray it will all turn out OK. Thanks for your prayers. His next test is March 17th. I am feeling very stressed by this since I am the only one in the family to take care of him and both of my sisters (both are handicapped). Work is super busy at the moment too and going to the gym every day is a challenge but I am doing it. I am finding, to my surprise that I feel so much better when I do. I have not missed a day since beginning except for Sundays because they are not open!

Have a great weekend. Two hours of work out tomorrow morning and weigh in at the gym too. Wish me luck!!

Good luck with your weigh in, although it sounds like you don't need any luck with all the hard work you've been doing. I wll keep your family in my prayers.

LOVE the red polka dots, Pam! And the comfort quilt too.
I'll keep your dad in prayer hon. Do continue to go to the gym - you need the endorphins to keep you going and work off that stress.

The women going through extensive chemo will be lifted on wings of love with that quilt around her. To touch the work of love of other women will remind her she is not alone and will give her energy to keep going on her journey.

Thank you for sharing. You are loved and cared about.

Beautiful donation quilt! You are doing awesome on your workouts with everything else you have going on. Make sue to get enough sleep to stay healthy.

i hope that someday someone will take my orphan blocks and make something lovely for another in need - Jack's donations are a lovely tribute to his mother

i admire your determination to live a more healthy life - and workouts are much better at stress-relief than food ... and now i think i will take that little bit of sage wisdom and do some jumping jacks
