" 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

Yucky day behind us !

Hooray, and PRAISE THE LORD for strength to get through things that we dread !

Hubby's all day evaluation is behind us, and we made the drive safely there and back.

I decided to buy a white skein of good ol' RedHeart acrylic, and start another scarf like the red one.........that, along with a copy of the Living New Testament, and my personal journal, kept me occupied and entertained through the day.

I only had two near misses on the highway, thanks to the angels accompanying us. Once, on the interstate on the way up there, I started to change over to the right lane beside me, and didn't see a car coming up in my blindspot. Close call.
Then, on the way home, on a two-way-traffic highway, a pick-up truck decided to pull out in front of me to enter the highway, when I was really coming up on him too close for him to have done that. Blessedly, my brakes worked well, and I was able to avoid hitting him.

Needless, to say, we were glad to get home and relax. Don't get me wrong,......it was not a white-knuckle, stress-filled day........the LORD almighty gave us strength, and confidence and even ease-of-mind to get the job done.

Now, I need some advice. I know I've been quilting for over 30 years, but my quilts are drawing up a little on the edges after binding. I'm using a walking foot, and using straight, single bindings. Should I switch back to bias-bindings? Single or double? I don't measure the binding and cut it to a specific length......never have. I don't remember having this problem many years ago, but I did use a lot of bias, double bindings.

  4. Glad that's over and you made it home safe! I rarely have reason to drive on the freeway anymore, so now I'm out of practice and dread it-it scares me.
    Your kitty is darling!
