Serendipity and Other Sagacities

While looking at Clarelis' site (love those butterflies!), I followed a link to blog de valy and thereby discovered The Butterfly Project. I am totally commited to completing some butterflies for this project, and am sending info to my DGS's teachers about the project and learning opportunities there. Deadline for the museum to receive the butterfly projects is 30 June, 2011. I'll be sure to post some pictures here.

You know that I love reading - right? I was checking out the blogs of other participants in le-marquoir-de-sophie, and saw a name I recognized from the Tiny Treasures - YoYo of Dragon my Needle. Of course I had to hop over and check out her blog - some loverly stuff there. And while I can't quite recall how I started from there and ended up at Tonya's blog (I spend way too much time cruising - lol!). I'm glad I did. Look this Friday for my post on:

There's a neat giveaway over at Ginny's Quilts that I ran across this evening - of course I'm entering for the giveaway!

Health issues continue to occupy most of my time. Mama is now in her 5th week in the ICU. Tomorrow there are plans for a couple of procedures that will hopefully improve matters - say a little prayer for her and all of us, please.

The frog has been visiting me regularly, and I was fairly confused about why - until I realized that four to five hours of sleep per night is leaving me chronically sleep-deprived. Automatic stitching is the result. So I'm going to close this and get into bed with a final reminder to myself and anyone who happens to read this that healthy living relies on four major factors:
Healthy Air (breathing)
Healthy Water
Healthy Food and
Healthy Sleep.
Good Night!

Another Freebie Site Found!

I was actually googling for cross stitch lap stands when I ran across Better Cross Stitch Patterns . com. Well worth your time to check it out. Be sure to read the About Us page - Katherine and Allen appear to be very sweet people.

New Craft Creations Magazine Download Available

A real quick post to let you know there's a new issue of Craft Creations Magazine available for downloading: Issue 48
And wait until you see the Easter Surprise! It is too cute!

Mama Update: Please continue to pray for her - we're now in the fourth week in the ICU, and she's having problems weaning from the ventilator.

CDB Update: She continues recovering from her hospitalization last December / January - but has contracted mycoplasma pneumonia (which is responding well to treatment) - a very big warning that her health is still very fragile!

My meditation for today is on Psalm 18:32-36.
"It is God who arms me with strength,
And makes my way perfect..."

Keep Looking Up!
