silver linings

first on my monday list is to publicly thank Sonel (Sonel's Corner) for graciously providing me with my first blinkie! i'm posting it today finally because i just haven't been feeling like doing any extras since she sent it to me not long after my first wrist surgery. she used elements from my september quilt kit and added the razzle dazzle to make people take notice. i've never figured out how to make a blinkie, but certainly hope to some day. thanks, again, sonel for such a neat gift.

she also made a matching header, so i'm color-coordinated at last!


i've been blessed with many silver linings lately ... like being able to spend more time with Mom when she came to help be my extra set of hands during the Christmas holidays. she's still been regaining strength after the slow healing of her leg fracture last autumn -- and we spent a lot of time laughing and joking about the fact that between the two of us, we still didn't make a "whole" person!!

today's wa about moms with middle-age children is dedicated to her.

looks like my new blinkie isn't blinking, so i'll check to see what i did wrong.

blessings on your day,
melanie
