  1. Linda, thank you for sharing your work with us. It is amazing. I went to your flicker page to check out this quilt and I think I spent a half our just looking at your gorgeous work. You are an inspiration to those of us that need more practice! I am in awe. I have to go clean up my desk now --- from drooling!!! :lol:
  2. Oh Cheri, I am so sorry. I hope you take comfort in the love you and Elmer have shared. Your story is sad but your strength and love has been an inspiration to all of us. I hope you believe in angels and know that you have a wonderful angel at your side. Our prayers are with you and your family. (((((((((((hugs)))))))))))).
  3. Cheri, I hope you know how many people are sending up prayers for you and Elmer. I visit this site and the caring bridge site frequently but I'm not able to post most of the time. Your story has brought me to tears many times. I haven't met you or Elmer but I feel I've shared your journey and your sorrow. I can also feel through your posts what caring and lovely people you are. Many prayers have been offered up for you and Elmer, for healing, for peace, for strength. I so admire the courage you have shown throughout this ordeal. May God continue to watch over you and bless you and help you through the rest of your journey. Hugs and prayers for you, Elmer and your families.
  4. I love, love, LOVE this quilt. The colors are so pretty but your quilting makes it sing!
  5. Isn't it crazy how you can come to rely on people so much when you haven't even met them face to face? I have come to the forum so many times - when I need inspiration, when I get stuck, when I'm down in the dumps. You all are always there with encouragment, laughs, prayers, whatever. Thanks my forum friends. :) :)
  6. I too have this light set up. They are awesome. Before i had trouble quilting if it was cloudy or at night. I can now comfortably quilt any time of day and see my stitching much better. :D
  7. Lucky you! Hawaii is gorgeous. Have a wonderful trip!
  8. Hi Oma, I am glad to hear your treatment is going well. My sis that was diagnosed about the same time as you (her story sounds a lot like yours) has finished her treatment. Keep your chin up, you're almost there! We will continue to pray for you and will include your new friend.
  9. Oma, so glad that your news was good this time. Indulge yourself a little while you heal and rest up for radiation. We'll be praying for you. Looks like your grandaughter had a knack for this. What a thrill for you.
  10. We would never tire of looking at these beauties! Your work inspires me and many others on the forum. Congratulations on your ribbons!
  11. Wow, this is gorgeous! I love, Love, LOVE it! Thanks for posting the inspiration!
  12. Oma, Thank you for your response. I am sorry you are having to go through this too. I sounds as if my sis is in a similar place. Just having had the spot and surrounding tissue removed. We will get her pathology report back on Wednesday and are hoping for a similar outcome. Bless you as you continue your journey. You have a wonderful attitude and that can only help. Many prayers go your way as well. Please continue to keep us on the forum updated with your progress and pictures of your wonderful quilting as you are able. Stay strong!
  13. B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L ! ! ! ! ! ! That is some fantastic work!
  14. You poor thing, enough already! Prayers for continued recovery.
  15. When I read this, my heart fell to the ground. When my son was 21, he was diagnosed with a brain tumor, grade 4 medulloblastoma. That was the single worst day of my life. When I read this, it brought back a flood of memories. I remember feeling so helpless because moms and dads are supposed to fix things fore their kids. I am sure that Rachels family is going through a similar hell. After 18 grueling months of chemo and radiation, my son has been cancer free for 10 years. Please tell them I will pray for them as they go through this trying time. Also tell them to never give up hope, the doctors that deal with this are miracle workers. The hardest part is to let go and trust them. And try, try to find some positive out of all this. Many, many prayers are being offered up for Rachel and her family.
