  31. Just stopping by to let you know I'm back and I'll be updating you as soon as I get a little more sleep. Your comment was an incredible blessing to me last Thursday. Thank you for your willingness to pray, dear sister.

    And I suppose while I'm at it, I'll just go right ahead and enter the contest, too. I'm really intrigued by the mug rug idea. But really I just love the quilted look of all the items. And the scripture pillow is beautiful.

    Hope you're off to a fabulous week. I'll be in touch soon!
