" 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

Pinwheely goodness.....day 3

Yellow was the order of the day.

I got up and finished yesterday's yellow print blocks, and started on the yellow-striped ones.  This print ran a bit short, due to the fact that I'm oversizing an eighth of an inch so that I can square up the piecing when finished.  But there were a couple of extra flower print squares, so I added them into the mix.  This quilt will definitely call for some wise fabric use, but I'm up to the challenge.

I looked around on the internet today to see if this fabric is still available, just incase I actually run TOO short to improvise..............nope......VERY HARD TO FIND.   So, I"m saving any scrap bigger than an inch, just incase I have to piece some pieces !

Good day today otherwise as well.  Started the day with a visit to the sister-in-law that lives about 2 miles away.  Ya know, I was really excited when I moved back, to realize that my brothers were all still alive and well, and I would now be living close to them.  But, the sister-in-law thing is new to me,.........AND I LOVE IT.  The guys either weren't married yet, or hadn't been married long when I left, so I didn't know what it was like to have the sister-in-LOVE in my daily life (with me as an adult).  I had always wanted a sister , as you can imagine, growing up with 5 brothers.  Today, I was messing around with my sis-in-law's garden, and she remarked, "I've got myself another daughter !"   Well, she's 78, so she thought of me that way, but I got home and realized, "NO, you've got yourself another sister !"  She hasn't been around me enough for it to sink in on her either !

Wow..........I am just so VERY blessed !

My brother then joined hubby and me, and we all went to the nursing home together.  It was a wonderful morning, followed by a great afternoon of piecing........with an hour's nap squeezed in under the cool air from the window fan, just for good measure !
