" 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

So close !

Now, I quilt  !    Now, when the weather decides to prematurely jump up into the 80's, I quilt ! 
Oh, well, whatcha gonna do?  I am so close to finishing that monster, I just have to sneak time in on it when I feel like it.  This is the last hoopful of muslin-border-quilting.   Somebody give me an idea for those blasted big swags.....it's so hard to see the marking or the quilting on them.   Maybe I'll just echo the quarter-inch quilting I've already done on them............BORING !

Thank you for all the sweet comments on my grandkids.  Alas, I wish they HAD been HERE for Easter, but those pictures were shared with me by the wonderful OTHER grandmother, in Oklahoma.  They went to her house and she always does such fun things for their visits .   It appears that she had bunnies hiding in the clover along with the expected eggs ! 
Hopefully, I'll get a turn with the kids again this summer ! 

God blesses us so much that I couldn't even ask for more !  Let's all remember those families that have been touched by the tragic mine explosion.  They have a touching Faith, and as their brothers and sisters in the Kingdom, we can send them prayers of encouragement and comfort.


  1. hey, u are getting good in the Quilt Craft. Nice work.

  2. I was wondering if they were there with you but thought I would have heard...Was confused how you got pictures so fast :) But now I understand... (I was a delinquent daughter with young kids pictures to my mom so I know about these things :)

    For quilting...I think the swags just need the 1/4 inch and maybe one or 2 curves to echo the shape that's it. The depth of the other quilting needs some open areas in the patterned swag areas. Just one person's opinion.

  3. This quilt is such an inspiration! And a testimony to your perseverance.

    The grandkids were awfully cute and how nice to have another grandma who shares such cute pictures!

    Praying for the miners and their family!


Thanks for stopping by !
