" 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

They got their quilts !

Zoe and T.J., that is.   I sent their quilts to them a few days ago, as it looks like I won't be seeing them until maybe this summer.  I didn't want them to wait any longer.  My daughter, Kelley, called me today and said that the kids love the quilts.  Kelley had seen T.J.'s on my blog, but had never seen Zoe's, and she just thinks that they are both fantastic.

 Zoe uses a bed that is elevated to provide a play area underneath, so with the wooden rail around it, it is difficult to use a twin-sized comforter or blanket.....too much to tuck in.  And T.J. is still in a youth bed which uses a baby crib mattress, just because he doesn't have room for a bigger bed right now.   So although I felt bad about the quilts being on the small side, it turns out that they were both just tailor-made for the situations ! 

I'm frying chicken for dinner, so I need to get some potatoes peeled and cooking.  Going back to work on the little beige quilt now, too.......
Piper wants to be the first one to sleep under the quilt, as she's heard that your dreams will come true......she's always chasing squirrels in HER dreams !


  1. Sorry you won't get to see your grandkids for a while yet, but glad they love their quilts! (How could they not?!)
    Your dog looks so cozy and adorable with the quilt, my dogs do that too :)

  2. Hi Dolly,

    I noticed you used Q-snaps to hoop your quilt? That's clever. I use them for my needlework, but never thought to use them for quilts!

    Thank you for stopping by my blog. I actually quilt all my quilts on my home machine. I don't have a long arm yet...


Thanks for stopping by !
