" 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

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 !
