Update on Sad News

My report is that the storm came, has blown away and now a rainbow has taken its place!  There may still be some pain but prayers take that away.  Praise God for all his blessings in the midst of sorrow! 

Update from  Thursday, June 24 to now

We did manage to get Jenny (Kathy’s identical twin) to fly out for a few days as I really feel that they needed each other right now and am looking forward to seeing her.  Jenny lives in Michigan.  My sister and dad are coming down tomorrow for a visit and with the exception of my other sister who lives in Canada, this will be the first time we’ve been together for a long time.  

We had a blast on Thursday!  Kathy wasn’t up to going anywhere for lunch, much less moving around very much at all.  My sister and Dad came in from Placerville and we had lunch at Kathy’s house.  Jenny was so good with her sister, she took care of her and did most of the cleaning for the visit.  My job was to make a nice big salad, get some shrimp (didn’t realize it was frozen and didn’t thaw out in time for lunch, DUH!) and went to Salazar’s and picked up a small platter of mini burritos, quesadillas, etc.  I made some ice tea and Jenny made lemonade and we  had such a good time visiting.  An (Kathy’s hubby) wasn’t able to be there as he had to work.  Later, An’s parents came over and took little Sam to their house so he could play with his cousins. 

You should’ve seen Jenny and Kathy together, they are in contact constantly, it seems, and trying to get a word in edgewise is almost impossible!  So, we sat back and watched the show.  Even Doug (my hubby) was quiet, which just isn’t normal for him!  LOL!!  We took a lot of pictures and then took turns looking at pictures from everyone’s camera cards on the computer! Here are some pictures:

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
