" 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

Finished little Christmas quilt

Hopefully, these will be the last photos I share of this little quilt.  I've started to feel like I just keep this blog so that I can receive compliments on my work.  Forgive me if it seems that way.  I only want to share my progress and my creative outlet, as I said before, missing my "in-person" quilting friends as I do.  Also, this absolutely serves as my journal to look back on to see what I was doing with this time of my life.
Having said that, this is the best photo I could get of the entire quilt, and yet, I still cut off some of it around the edges.
 And here's the back........it doesn't photograph well.  In person, it is quite scrumptious, with a wonderful happy feeling of red and white.......kind of like a Christmas candy cane.
 Here's my best out-of-doors shot.

And then, there's these.  Everyday when we walk, my husband and I are in awe of this big, gorgeous tree.  It's red on one side, and yellow and orange on the other.  He kept wanting a photo, and we almost waited too late.  Today when he saw that the leaves were gone already out of the very top, he insisted that we drive back down and grab a couple of photos.  I'm really glad that he did.  I love that man AND our walks, and Wow, the LORD sure paints a pretty picture !

The last of the beauties on our street.

No, this isn't my house, but I get to enjoy this beauty everyday !

  3. Hi Dolly: I came over from "A Few Scraps". I love how you have embraced the free motion quilt along. Your little quilt came out so nice. I love your feathers--that is what I want to ultimately be able to do too. I read some of your blog and you are my kind of quilt blogger, so you have a new follower. :)
