" 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

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.
