More Blessings For Granny!

Don't ask me why my pictures are small because I don't know.
A special "thank you" to Mary for this beautiful card, money for a quilt and the fabric blocks that she cut for Granny. Granny was so excited. She said that those ought to be enough for a quilt. What a sweet gift. Thank you Mary. Your quilt will be shipped tomorrow.

This is a very sweet note from Connie to Granny along with the money for another quilt.
Connie has already blessed Granny once and now she purchased another one.
Check out her blog. She is having a give away!
Thank you Connie!

Granny loved the fabric that Mary sent her.
She was amazed that someone would do that for her.

She reads each card herself outloud.
It is so sweet.

This is a card from Kim. Kim bought a quilt last week
and I just now gave her the card.
Granny just loved it Kim. Thank you for blessing Granny by purchasing a quilt.
Kim just started a blog and she posted about her quilt. She has been introducing her beautiful family too. Go over and visit her and say hello at Kim's Blog!

I wish you could have heard her read every word.
This sweet card is from Nanci - I failed to take a picture close up but it had her money clipped inside the card. Granny loved reading this. Thanks Nanci for blessing Granny.
Your quilt will be in the mail tomorrow.

The other day Granny had asked me to cut some of her fabric. There was not much but I cut them anyway. I brought my rotary cutter and mat and worked on some in her kitchen. She could not get over that cutter. She said, "Beth, you amaze me". Granny can make me feel so good without me doing a thing. I loved hearing it even though cutting with a rotary cutter is all I know. Granny has always used scissors. It is the little things that Granny appreciates.
At one point she got big tears in her eyes and said "I just don't know what to think."
She said she loves you all and to tell you thank you.
She was so sad today until I came bearing your gifts. Her sewing machine is tore up again so she was so lost without it. I hope my Uncle Joe gets if fixed and back to her tomorrow.

I am so glad to see that Granny is blessed with so much love, Val. She is an inspiration to all of us.

A broken sewing machine???? Dreadful! I think you need to take that little Featherweight over for her to use while hers is out of commission. ;) She'd love it.

I am thanking God for all the blessings for Granny! I think about her every day, she inspires me to get on up and read my bible and get busy. Praying her machine is fixed very soon!

Val, email me, and I'll bet I can help you learn how to work on Granny's machine. It is so easy to do, and then you would know how to help her,and she wouldn't have to wait.

God is smiling down on you, my dear friend, for taking such good care of Granny.
be blessed,

Val, reading about your Granny blesses me right back. She is a dear and precious little lady and I love my two quilts. I'm planning on sending her a birthday card in care of you. I love all your "Granny posts" and look forward to more of them along with all your posts. Thanks for sharing Granny with us. XO

Oh gosh, I hope the machine is fixed, too.

Val, so sweet to watch her reading and know her life is being changed by everyone here. It's really such a deep thing to realize, to know that everyone is impacting this wonderful woman in the late hours of her life.

MAYBE we should ALL chip in for a back up machine for granny! Or will have to find something else to do while machine is down May God bless her because she BLESSes each of US!

So happy that Granny is still being blessed by your blog Val!!
I hope the machine is home again soon!!
If we all could simply live and look at life as Granny does we would all be so much better off in so many wonderful ways.
Sew On Sweet Granny!!

That is so sweet. I love Conni. She is my "real life" friend :o) Hope she can get her machine fixed or use her quilt monies to buy her a new one. You are so sweet to be so loving with her. I miss my Grandma's terribly. Kiss her for me!

Sherry said...

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that Granny was sad! I hope her machine gets fixed soon!

Give her a hug for us!

As usual, you have blessed us with a Granny post! The problem with her sewing machine is that she won't use another one. It is what she is used to. We all love Granny, and thank you, dear daughter, Valerie, for all you do for her.

Her sweet little machine is her friend. I pray that it gets better soon. Love you all! Brenda
