Praise !

"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"

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.

Don't go barefoot at Nana's/ Pinwheels, day 5?

I've lost count of how many days I've been working on these !
Anywho, I had a really good and PIECEFUL day !  Ha, my spellcheck is going crazy !
Got the last of the fabrics pieced into pinwheels, ........ greens this time !
Then I went to sit in the yard chair.









I thought I'd sit outside and pin an alternate block to each pinwheel block.  As I set my pins on the arm of the chair,
I took a look around and thought, "hmmmmm......
how difficult will it be to pick up these pins if I spill them out here?"













 Sure enough, when I reached for the FIRST pin, the tin slid off onto the ground !













 Grabbed the camera for posterity's sake, and went to work trying to insure that there would be no surprises to be found by little (or big) bare feet !

Back into the house to the couch for this bit of work, I got everything pinned on and sewn.

Next, I lay out all the blocks into color groups for choosing.
 Time to start making rows........12 rows with 12 blocks in each row, counting alternate blocks, of course.  I've pieced 6 of the 12 rows, and then joined 4 of those.
I had some momentum going, but decided to leave more work for next time.  It makes my days fun to know what it is I'll be working on, and be able to get right to it after chores.  (Yes, MAW, I got them there chores done like ya done ast me to !)

But, tomorrow is Apron-making day, right?  And hubby needs a couple more for himself, before I think about making any for the nursing home friends !

So, I'm going to bed content with today's work and looking forward to tomorrow's..........how about you?  What did you get done today?
Oh, by the way, we had a really good time at the picnic, and here's a quick shot of me, Allyssia, and her mommy, Mandy.
