" 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

I had a fairly productive day........

despite a most enjoyable interruption.










This little quilt was whipped up for my niece's sister (They don't have the same father, so she's not MY niece), and the little boy that she gave birth to last week.  His name is Oakley, (isn't that different?) and he weighed just 5 pounds and 12 ounces......about the same size that Allyssia was when SHE was born !

Allyssia played in my scraps-trashcan on the floor beside me while I worked,
Note the use of the unfinished quilt-along quilt, including basting pins.
and, eventually, gave in to the call of the afternoon nap.......ahhhh, how I love that song !
I used the inside-out/birthing method for the quilt, and made use of a piece of flannel that was leftover from Kelley's last baby.  (Thanks Jodie)
Well, she's awake and I'm done !  Goodnight !

Let me add right here just how VERY BLESSED I feel to have a baby in the house every now and again !   My hubby and I are the most boring people in THE WORLD, and it is so good to have cutesiness around.......to see a child dance, or try to sing with you, or look puzzled at your own silliness !   Ah, thank you LORD !

  2. luv the quilt you always come up with great ways to use fabric, am going to my sewing room and cleaing and getting ready to hook up my featherweight so i can have one machine to sew doll clothes and the other to work on christmas projects and not loose my seam allowance. hey mother dot of the featherweights. what can cause the seam to seem like it is gathering, is it the top tension or bottom tension. i changed bobbins and started having a problem with the top acting like it was gathering, i kept loosing the top tension and it got better. the other thing is do i make the bobbin wind away or toward me, i was gonna call you but the cell phone was out of juice and i could not even look up your # to use Garys phone.
