Needle Book Love and Thanks

Thank you so much for your words of kindness and care and for your blessings and prayers. You don't know how much it meant to me to read all of your sweet comments. And all the prayer must have worked...
Miraculously, my grandmother was taken off the ventilator late yesterday afternoon. Last night, we even had a brief phone conversation and it was truly unbelievable. I feel so blessed and so does she!
Just thought I would share this needle book today. I started it on Saturday afternoon and had just about finished it, when I received the phone call from my brother. The only thing I need to add is the ribbon for a tie-closure. I did this entirely free hand. No measuring. I really need to work on developing more patience in life and in crafting.
I know that the lesson crafting has for me involves slowing down and taking time; being okay with taking baby steps towards accomplishing a goal. Oh, it's so hard for me to do!
Thank-you again, for your care and concern.

I am soooo, so happy to hear this. You and your grandmother have been in my thoughts and prayers, so this is wonderful news to read this evening.

And that needle book is so sweet, I could tell the love (no pun intended) that went into making it! :)
