" 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

I just love reaching the finish line !

Hoorah !  Hoorah !   Another little quilt under my belt ! 














This quilt is intended for my mother's twin, Aunt Edith, in Michigan,
who will be celebrating their birthday on May 17, as she turns 85.


 My beautiful aunt is enjoying good health, still driving herself to Church and about,
and, God willing, will have her 3 daughters with her to celebrate the occasion. 

I so wish that I could be there,
 but instead I'm sending a hug in the form of a handmade quilt. 
You can see the size of the quilt here, compared to a queen-sized bed,.........
hopefully, the quilt is just the right size for covering her lap and legs.
Old-time quilter that I am, I finished it with a label. 
The one thing I didn't do is add a sleeve for hanging.  I hope
that wasn't a mistake, but I wanted her to actually use
the quilt while reading or watching t.v., and
I didn't want the top edge to have the stiffness added
by a sleeve.
