How was your weekend? We are having cooler than normal temps here in our piney woods. It is feeling so much more like Autumn,and I am loving it! Had to get grandma's heavy quilt out and put it on my bed. Grandma Judge,my daddy's mother,could sew up a storm. She had a big commercial sewing machine she used. I never got to spend any time with her learning to sew or what not,but sure wish I had of. She made a lot of quilts in her time. In her later years she quilted them on that big machine I mentioned. The quilt I have was my dads and he gave it to me. Its not fancy or beautiful,but it sure is warm in cold weather. I stay as snug as a bug in a rug under it :) I also have some quilts my MIL made and gave me. I have been pulling them out one at a time over the last few weeks and washing them...some need mended in a few places and I intend taking care to do that soon. Cold weather is a good time for needle work,don't you agree?
Last week I suffered a great deal with pain in my right leg...after going to the ER with it,I was told it is the Sciatic nerve that is dealing the pain. I am feeling just a bit better,but I had to stay in bed a few days with it. If you have ever experienced that kind of pain,then you know what I am talking about. It hard to deal with,the pain meds were not even helping a lot. I have a couple of outings plan this week so I pray the worst of the pain is behind me. I was able to attend church yesterday,both services,and they were wonderful. It is always wonderful coming together to worship and hear the preaching of God's word. I count it a privilege to do so!
Hoping all of you have a very blessed week....what a blessing all of you are to me...thank you so much for your visits and comments....I love hearing from you!

Anybody know if this quilt patch has a name?
This picture below is of a friends bedroom...isn't her old quilt lovely ?
I don't think anything is more comforting than old quilt.
