....great for us quilters and knitters, especially, because we can win something really different from what we ourselves create !
here and the prize is this painting........oh, aren't you glad that Spring is finally here, and doesn't this painting just make you take a deep restful breath ! You can almost smell the blooms.
The drawing will be on April 10th and you have a chance at as many as 3 entries, so go and have a look for yourself if you like !
Tomorrow I get to watch Alyssia again for a few hours, and maybe after that, I'll get the chance to baste the hexagon-appliqued quilt. I pieced together yardage for the back today (out of necessity, not design.......it's all one print) and cut out the batting piece. I didn't have a single piece of cotton batting large enough without piecing, but I found that I had an entire full-sized polyester batt, so I'm going to use part of it. It'll make a really soft lap quilt.......could be a nice change from my norm. It should hand-quilt like a dream, too.
Praise for my LORD for the way he moves in my daily life........he cares about the little things that can often add up to seem like mountains. We had borrowed a lift chair to use after hubby's hip surgery, and it quit working a few days ago. I tried everything I could think of , and today, after confessing to the owner that it was messed up and I would try to pay to have it fixed, it miraculously started working again ! AND we received discounts on two of the nagging medical bills, allowing us to face them with a smile. He supplies ALL OUR NEEDS ......... and I ADORE him !
" 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
