" 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 DO get under your skin......

.....hexagons, I mean !

I guess that's why people put a 'hex' on you !

Anyway, I haven't been posting, but I have been working.  The baby quilt is coming along fine........a corner of the design takes me all afternoon.  I try to quilt a corner per session, with a day off in-between.

Then, I get to play a little.

I'm making a new cover for my Bible.......
......this is the current cover that I have on it........from my "dotty" days.  (By the way, looking at it here, I realize that this is THE BEST polka-dot fabric I have EVER seen, and I have NO IDEA where I got it !)

But a new idea came to me the other night as I was playing with my hexagons......
So, here's my start. 
Doesn't it sortof put you in mind of stained glass?
I'll probaby take the project
with me tomorrow.
Tomorrow afternoon is the monthly get-together
of the local quilters.  I hope to
go and take
for show and tell. 
Autumn's birthday is this weekend, 
so this is my only chance to
share it before I
say goodbye to it.  It's one
of my favorites I've ever made.
I'm so glad that bloggers' work
convinced me to give
machine-quilting another try ! 


  1. This is going to be a wonderful Bible cover, I want to do that!! I made a box full of hexagons, and gave them away. I think I might start again....

  2. I've always wanted to make a new Bible cover, but am still in love with the one I have with flamingoes all over it! lol

    The hexies do look like stained glass. Anyway to put a strip of black in between them?

  3. Hexagons are on my list of things to make. It will make a beautiful Bible cover!


Thanks for stopping by !
