White Oak Log Cabin Quilt


 I love the warm grays and cool browns of the white oak tree, and the tiny touch of orange that could be a little bit of sunset behind the woods.

This week I've only been up to serene straight stitching, in between bouts on the phone. Several days of this week I scheduled *thirteen* forty-minute phone conferences through the day. In between I've been jumping up to dry the laundry, hustle a meatloaf into the oven, do a few dishes, and when I get lucky, run a line of stitches.


And we lit a fire in the stove, which is bliss.

My mother goes in for a double mastectomy tomorrow at noon, but she won't need chemo, thank God.

I love the quilt you made. The grey makes the bright colors pop.

Thanks for your kind comments. Surgery's over, and she only stays in the hospital one night.

This one's not going to go in the shop. I've almost gotten to where I love these quilts too much to sell them!

Your Mother will be in my prayers, for peace, rest and healing. I was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer at the beginning of this year, God has shown His steadfast love to me in this year of surrender. I pray she will feel His love.
