message from Isabella

Isabella emailed me with this lovely message, what beautiful timing for her and congrats Isabella on your new greatgrandbaby.

 Sorry I’m not good with this contraption so can’t add to the blog so thought I’d tell you here my first Great grandson was born yesterday morning while we were up at Launceston to our fav shop Esme’s  I had been stitching Miracles in the car  on the way up from Burnie, anyway to get to the point while in Esma’s I got the call to say my granddaughter had just had a c/section so we decided since I had not trimmed my block down I should use that one as a label for his quilt.Hugs Isabella

PS as good deed for the week we have a lady we met in spotlight who has just moved from the mainland and did not know anyone here started on one of your  pocket stitcheries  she is loving just knowing she can do it also the new friendship.

a wonderful thing with stitchers, meet one anywhere in the world and you may have a new friend for life…

hugs, Helen

‘Angels are miracles sent from above to provide us with friendship, laughter and love’


 Well here we go girls and boys…. block one Jan 1st 2008

mir·a·cle      [miruh-kuhl] Pronunciation KeyShow IPA Pronunciation

1. an effect or extraordinary event in the physical world that surpasses all known human or natural powers and is ascribed to a supernatural cause.
2. such an effect or event manifesting or considered as a work of God.
3. a wonder; marvel.
4. a wonderful or surpassing example of some quality: a miracle of modern acoustics.
5. miracle play.

[Origin: 1125–75; ME miracle, miracul (< OF miracle) < L mīrāculum, equiv. to mīrā() to wonder at + -culum -cle2]
I thought I would start with this one having just passed the Celebration of what some would believe to be the biggest miracle, the Birth of Jesus Christ by the Virgin Mary.
In my life my biggest miracles are my perfect three little girls. I succinctly remember with each birth lying in those first bonding moments, mother and baby, flesh to flesh, how did this happen, how was I so clever, how did this perfect human being begin and grow and evolve into this beautiful and wondrous creature? I love them to death more with each day and we must remember to tell them this daily. Give lots of hugs and kisses and be open and honest with them, they will love you back unconditionally.
Please share with us miracles in your life.
On another note, have you made this block yet? Maybe, maybe not, this post will stay in the archives and can be searched for at anytime. Share with us your block when you are done. I personally think it would make a lovely birth card for a special friend or family member about to experience the most wonderful achievement as a woman – the birth of a child.
hugs for today
