NEW RUG AND SOME SNUGGLING GOING ON.....


BEFORE BRIAN'S SURGERY I DESIGNED AND 
DREW OUT A BIG HOOKED RUG INSPIRED BY
DIFFERENT ANTIQUE HOOKED RUGS.
I PICKED OUT MY WOOL'S AND HAD EVERYTHING
CUT AND READY GO THINKING WHEN I GOT
HIM HOME IN TWO WEEKS I'D HAVE SOMETHING
READY TO WORK ON. LITTLE DID I KNOW IT
WOULD BE TWO MONTHS BEFORE I COULD
BRING HIM HOME! SO NOW THAT MY FOLKY
QUILT IS DONE I AM WORKING ON MY NEW RUG
AND REALLY ENJOYING IT. HERE IS MY PROGRESS
SO FAR.


 I'M USING FOUR DIFFERENT AS IS 
REBECCA ERB WOOL'S FOR THE BACKGROUND
AND I'M LOVING THE OLD LOOK OF IT.


I'M THINKING I WILL DO AN E-PATTERN WHEN
I GET MY RUG ALL DONE FOR THOSE THAT
MAY WANT TO HOOK IT OR PUNCH IT.
IT WOULD BE FUN TO PUNCH TOO!


 LOTS MORE TO GO BUT I'M USING BIG
CUTS SO IT'S GOING PRETTY FAST. THE HORSE
TOOK UP SOME SPACE!!


NOW FOR THE SNUGGLING PART! THESE TWO
ARE CONSTANT COMPANIONS BUT I DO GET IN
MY SNUGGLES TOO!  BRIAN IS DOING WELL
AND I'M SO PROUD OF HIM! WE THANK YOU
ONCE AGAIN FOR YOUR CONTINUED PRAYERS
AND THOUGHTS FOR US. THEY MEAN SO VERY
MUCH TO US AND WE KNOW WE HAVE COME
THIS FAR BECAUSE OF THEM. PRAISE THE LORD
FOR HIS FAITHFULNESS AND TENDER MERCIES.

UNTIL NEXT TIME.....LORI

LAYING ON TOP OF ANOTHER QUILT ON MY BED.


 MY DESIGN USING MOSTLY ANTIQUE TIN 
COOKIE CUTTER SHAPES FOR THE INSPIRATION

LOOKS NICE WITH MY BIG LOG HOUSE

MERRY CHRISTMAS.....


WE HOPE EACH ONE OF YOU HAD A 
BLESSED CHRISTMAS.  WE HAD A NICE
QUIET DAY WITH JUST THE THREE OF US.
ZOE AND BRIAN SNUGGLED ON THE 
NEW RECLINER LIFT CHAIR THAT WAS
DELIVERED LAST WEEK.  BRIAN IS 
GETTING BETTER AND BETTER AT
TRANSFERS FROM HIS WHEELCHAIR.
I JUST SORT OF "SPOT" HIM WHILE HE
SLIDES ON THE TRANSFER BOARD.  I BROUGHT
HIM HOME OVER TWO WEEKS AGO
AND WE ARE SO GRATEFUL TO BE HOME
TOGETHER FOR CHRISTMAS.


HIS PT AND OT COME TO THE HOUSE 
AS WELL AS A HOME HEALTH CARE
NURSE.  THE WEATHER HAS TURNED
BITTER COLD SO WE ARE THANKFUL
TO BE ABLE TO STAY AT HOME TO TEND
TO HIS NEEDS FOR NOW.  THERE IS 
A LOT TO DO AND REMEMBER BUT EACH
DAY WE ARE GETTING BETTER AT 
GETTING IT ALL IN.  WE ARE THINKING
OF ADDING A BATHROOM OFF OF THE 
BEDROOM BRIAN IS IN SO ALL OF 
HIS NEEDS WILL BE IN ONE AREA.  
WE GOT HIM A NICE SOLID FULL SIZE
HOSPITAL BED FOR THE BEDROOM AND
A TRAPEZE THAT IS WORKING OUT WELL.

WE CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR
ALL OF THE PRAYERS.  WE ARE SO TOUCHED
AND THANK YOU FOR REMEMBERING US.
WE DON'T KNOW WHAT THE LORD
HAS PLANNED BUT WE WILL TRY OUR 
BEST TO SERVE HIM AND ENJOY OUR
LIFE TOGETHER.

CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS FROM OUR
HOME TO YOURS......BRIAN, LORI & ZOE
