" 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

Sometimes you don't have to say a word.......

.......I will exalt you, O LORD, for you lifted me out of the depths......(Psalms 30: 1)

You know that I was just itchin' to make something out of that 'faith' fabric !  
I had a checkbook in mind, but realized that if I used more than one fabric, I might could manage to squeeze a purse out also.  I think I have just enough fabric left for the checkbook........we'll see.  But for now, I'm carrying this sweet little thing everywhere I go, and letting it speak to the world !

From conception......
To completion.....
A peek at the lining.....
(you're probably noticing that I forgot to sew the ribbon loop into the top seam and had to stitch it on later !)
.....and, last but not least, the back !

By the way, if you take a look at some of my favorite things from Etsy, over there in the sidebar, you'll see a tee-shirt with the saying "I don't know what the future holds.......but I know who holds the future."  I ordered one for myself yesterday, painted on a long-sleeved navy tee.  I can't wait to get it.......this is the first thing I've ordered from Etsy in over a year. 
Today is also the one year anniversary of Hubby's last two strokes.....February 17, 2009.   He's a little sore from too much walking without a walker before he was ready.......a little setback that I'm sure he'll recover from soon. 


  1. such nice bags..

    HAVE FAITH, Dotty :)

  2. Your fabric and purse are so sweet! I do hope for continued health for your husband.

  3. I love the bag! I'm so happy you got to order something from Etsy, I'll have to check that shirt out.

    Continued prayers *hugs*

  4. The bag should be marketed and sold it's that cool! Bible covers too! It's just lovely!

    On the anniversary, how blessed you are to have him to hold. I'm glad he's up and walking, it is so hard, I know. What an awesome blessing he has in YOU!

    Sonshine your way today and everyday!

  5. Love the bag, great use of the fabrics and the accent stripe is just perfect. I haven't made a bag in a couple years, now you have me wanting to make one too ;)

  6. That fabric and purse are beautiful. I'vee seen a Bible cover made from the "faith" fabric and it was just gorgeous!
    Will be praying for your hubby and for you.
    God Bless You.
