" 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

Pandolph quilt-top begun !




















Okay, the Pandolph quilt is officially under way !

Yesterday's mail brought a replacement piece of fabric, and today, I got to work figuring out my cutting measurements.  My sweet pal, Jodie, even included a new packet of basting safety pins, because she read that I had used too many on my quiltalong sample !

I started out by making all of my red/cream-combination half-square triangles.  I drew them out the same way I did for the Pinwheel quilt, and got them made quickly.
 I probably worked about 4 1/2 hours today.........I trim much more slowly now, giving homage to my age, wishing to keep all of my digits in tact !
I find that I now need to sit at the ironing board while pressing all of the triangle-squares open.   Funny how these things creep up on you, huh?
