Need prayers and a miracle

Today is a Monday...already bad....and we are nearing the end of the summer. I STILL have no full time job.  I just don't know what to do anymore.  I've applied to so many places and NOTHING.  I've started to declutter my house because we will have to sell, we can no longer afford the mortgage on this house since I am not working.  I am so sad about all of this.  We also have no health insurance and are in debt to our eyeballs.  It just keeps getting worse and worse.  We need a miracle.  For those of you who may by chance come across my blog, kindly say a prayer for my family and for an end to our financial crisis.  We would greatly appreciate it!!

My Papi's Apron

Growing up my mom was the only one who did all the cooking and she was a great cook! After my parents retired, my mom decided she didn't really want to be cooking every day anymore so my dad (I call him Papi, the way Cuban kids call their dad) took over. Lo and behold, and who ever knew, my dad was such a good cook???? All those years....and we never knew he had this hidden talent. His meals are mouth watering good and now my mother gets to enjoy all his cooking and his experiments, which all turn out divine. So, since my dad is almost impossible to buy anything for, I thought this would be the perfect gift for his b-day (which was a few months ago..I'm a little late...forever the procrastinator). It's not perfect by any means, I used no pattern, I just sort of made it as I went, but there is my love in every stitch :) Here are a few pics:

A lap quilt made with love

Hi everyone, I won't be writing too much because my index finger on my right hand is all bandaged up from a nasty cut and I can't type with it so it's hard to type too much.  Just wanted to share a pic of a guardian angel lap quilt and matching tote I made for my mom.  I hope she likes them!!  I'll post soon, I promise....
