Our boys have let us know they are "home" safely at the school, and Wes is home from taking them to Vancouver to catch their plane. We live in a valley here, so to get get anywhere, you have to go over the mountains. We got just a bit of snow last night, so Wes was a little nervous about the drive over to Vancouver. It turned out that there were some snowy places on the road, slowing him down a bit going down, but on the way back the sun was shining and he made good time coming home. I'm always so glad when he comes in the door from a long trip like that (round trip was about 9 1/2 hours) and kisses me and calls me his pet name! ;)
Thank you for those who prayed for us today! My eyes teared up as I hugged my boys, and my voice quavered, but I did not break down and cry. The Lord has been so good to help me with that! I did cry a little after they left, but only for a few minutes. Then I had a full day of cleaning up, grocery shopping, and errand running to keep my mind occupied!
I'm getting ready to start cutting the pieces for my sister's bag this evening. I also plan to iron the fabrics I bought yesterday; I washed them last night. Do you pre-wash your fabrics? I always do, but I didn't start doing that till I started making quilts. I don't want to take a chance on their getting misshaped after I've put my quilt together.
I'm off to play with my fabrics! Have a good evening!
