rabbit lap quilt

Have some sad news   my brother is on life support following a heart attack and then a stroke plus a fractured skull from falling when it all happened.  This all happened a week ago and still not awake or breathing for himself,  I saw him yesterday,  his eyes were open but not focusing    we are praying fo his return to us     fear it will be a slow process but whist there  life there is still hope,  his heart stopped for 13 minutes so we are very concerned and feelng so helpless,  he has his wife and 3 sons with him,  the youngest lives in the Dominican Republic,  he arrived back on monday.  I will go on sunday but when we are there only 2 allowed at his bed side and more often than not they send us out whilst they are doing things to him


This is a quilt I started a while ago and today have got it to flimsy stage   so another one to go on the quilting pile.

I do not understand why this fabric will not photo    this is the best I can do and these are the various fabrics I used along with the green for background.

Best wishes to your brother and his family. You certainly are dealing with a lot of challenges! I'm glad you were able to finish a little more sewing at least. The spring green will be very cheering over the winter, I think. :D

Needless to say I hope that your brother recovers and all is well. There is always something isn't there, one things ends and another comes in its place. Keep strong and I think your rabbits are wonderful.

My heart goes out to you and your entire family….these are the times when we can feel so powerless but banning together with loved ones/friends for support can be such a blessing. Prayers go out to you all.

Dear Margaret, we are continuing to pray for Richard and your whole family. My heart goes out to you. Jesus is the healer and has Hos hand upon Richard. I pray that the doctors will be given insight and knowledge for his care. You get some rest if you can. Your quilt is so sweet with the bunnies and deer and others. Perhaps it needed brighter light. God bless you.
