Praise !


The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.

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 !
