" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???

The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31

"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4

Boring accountability

That's what I'm going to call it.

Warning.....the next few posts may be incredibly boring (I mean even more-so than usual !), as I'm attempting to use this web log as a tool toward accountability. I really want to finish this Feathered Star quilt, so I'm thinking that I'll post each day just how much I accomplish THAT DAY ! Hopefully, I'll feel that I have to keep trudging ahead.

(Keep in mind that this trailer has no overhead lighting, so my best quilting light comes from sitting in front of this big window. That means that I don't get to wait until evening, when I'd like to curl up and do my hand-quilting, after getting to play in the sewing room all afternoon. No, I have to get my morning's housework done, and then settle down in front of the window, quilting for all it's worth until the light fades beyond usability.)

So, with that in mind, here are today's photos:

I think I'll put them side-by-side for comparison.............

Morning--fresh area hooped and ready........
Evening--approximately 55% of hooped area quilted.
Poor China couldn't take the boredom !
(And just for the blog record, we had snow flurries today.)
