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.

Hiatus over !

Guess I've been gone quite awhile !

But I've been busy, don'tcha know?
I finished my Hexagon Bible cover and I'm just as pleased as punch with it. I especially love all the red that it is finished  with.........a good reminder of the precious blood of Jesus, that was shed for our salvation. 
The inside of the cover incorporates Poinsettia blooms to remind me of Christmas.
The pencil pocket on the front, inside, is so handy, and doesn't cause the cover to stand open at all.....a nice little surprise.  I used to keep the pencil inside the jacket flap itself, against the Bible, but it rolled around all over the place.

And today, I discovered that the instructions for piecing the quilt top needed for the quiltalong,
 over at A Few Scraps blog, had already been posted for days and I didn't even know it.
Photos of people's tops started showing up in the Flickr group and I thought, "huh?"

So, today I got busy and made my top.........

recognize any of these fabrics, Jodie? 

I've had the children fabric and rocking horse fabric, along with some red coordinates, put away forever, never finding just the right project for them.  They go really well with these cheater's cloth scraps, I think.
I plan on using the Christmas panel that you just sent me, as the back, and Kelley will have a reversible little holiday quilt.
