"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Two things that make me happy...



Someone from my church brought these lovely flowers by on Monday. They were the altar flowers from Sunday and someone decided we needed a show of support to help us get through my FIL's death. And, they are my favorite colors...purple and green!



I finished the Bat Mitzvah present for my friend Jen's daughter, Emily. Jen asked a group of us who are friends to help her put this together for Emily's special day. I finished it...YAY. And, hopefully (please God), it will get there today...only one day before the Bat Mitzvah. If you want to see close ups of the squares, check this link. The square design is a quilting pattern called the friendship square. Normally, the center of each pieced square would be the darker color but that is where I placed the cross stitch squares. I like it but, do you think a 13 yr old will like it?
