" 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

Day FOUR, more color !

Starting to get a nice little pile of colory eye-candy now ! 
Today, I must have gotten alot of other stuff done, because I don't see alot of piecing here !
But, I got the blue flower print blocks made, penciled out the blue spatter print, ready for tomorrow's sewing adventure, and marked a couple extra in each fabric, to help fill out the extra row I'm piecing.  
I also got all the rest of the sawtooth border's triangles pieced and all of them pressed.  Tomorrow will hopefully see them being trimmed to perfection.

In addition, today I cut out all of the alternate blocks, half from each of two fabrics.   And looking ahead, it looks like I will have just enough fabric for everything.

I don't know exactly WHAT else I did today, (let's see, there was laundry, mowing and gardening, sweeping, dishes, dinner, running to town.......) but whatever it was, it has knocked me out !  I almost waited too late to post tonight, that's how tired I am.

I truly think part of it is from finally talking to my grandbabies today.  I MISS THEM SO MUCH ! 
Zoe sounds like a little adult, and T.J. just makes me want to reach through the phone and pull him to me when he says, "Nana, I wish you could sleep here tonight."  I want my babies........I could hear Seth in the background crying, and hear him quiet down the moment daddy picked him up.  I want that to be me quieting him just a couple of times, too.

Well, GOD has a plan and a purpose for it all, doesn't he?  I just wish I hadn't complained so much when I had the babies living with me.  I am so thankful now for the time I had those babies around.

I'm tired, and I'm turning in.  Night, all.


  1. Hi girl! This is the first day I've had time to go online for a while, just read all your posts that I missed. You are making great progress on this quilt and it looks like fun! Great colors you're working with too.

    I love the his and hers aprons in your other post, that is too sweet:)

    I hope it's not too long till you get to see your darling grandbabies.
