Praise !


The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.

Oh, the guilt !

Hubby's taking my cold now.  Yuck.......well, atleast I'm feeling good enough to take care of him........the LORD does provide !

 Today, I made another one of the pleated pouches.  I decided to see what it would be like if it had batting in it, since I didn't have any interfacing to try. 

I also added a 'ledge', as Georgia Bonesteel used to call it, an inserted piece between the two main pattern pieces, just for accent.  I like how it came out. 
The pleated pouch finishes at 5 1/2 x 7 inches.
I was 'talking' to a fellow blogging friend who was thinking about making tissue holders, so I thought I'd try to make a matching kleenex pouch, too.  The pattern, which was posted by the same blogger as the pleated pouch,  was simple, and, once again, I added batting.
While digging through my sewing room, I ran across some special penguin printed kleenex that I think Jodie Ann had sent me at some point, so I made a matching, snowy kleenex holder for them too.
I realized yesterday, while wrapping T.J. and Zoe's hats for shipping, that I hadn't shared a photo of hers since I had finished it.  They went off in today's mail, and just in time for some really cold air, I think.

Note to JoAnn and Wanda.....the date for that awaited evaluation has finally been set, so perhaps things will start moving along again.  Praise the LORD, we have the holidays !
