" 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

My treats.......

"Happy" charm pack, QuiltTaffy, Etsy
"Nicey Jane" charm square pack, QuiltTaffy, Etsy
"Tufted Tweets", QuiltTaffy on Etsy

I decided to reward myself for finishing those two commissions,
These are what I settled on from the favorites over there in my sidebar "wish list". 
Of course, I ordered these before I found out the "layer cake" secret to making
the square in a square quilt.  Now, I'm scouring the 'net looking
for bargain layer cakes !

But, I'm going to add to these and ENJOY them !

Speaking of commissions, I heard from the lady in Michigan today.
She received the quilt and is very pleased..............but she didn't
OPEN it ! 
She said that it was wrapped so prettily that she didn't
dare open it, for fear that she couldn't rewrap it as nicely !
Now, she won't see it until the shower !

Your two upcomming commissions look like a handful and will keep you busy for a while, but I'm sure will be just gorgeous as always! Can't wait to see your progress pics of them.
