" 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

Well, so much for momentum.......

....last post, I had gotten to work in the sewing room, trying to make up a few little Christmas gifties.

Then, the COLD hit........I don't mean the cold temperature........I mean a cold like I haven't had in years.  I spent Wednesday in and out of bed all day.  I'm slowly coming back now, and probably shouldn't have tried to sew.  I needed to make one more Christmas stocking for my house, as I realized that I have never made my last grandson, Seth, a stocking. 

Kelley's decided to buy them all new stockings for her house, now that they've decided that their family has STOPPED growing.......except for pets, that is (they added a new doggy just this week and a kitten a couple of months ago!)

Anyway, my hubby points out that this stocking is THE LEAST elaborate of all the stockings, so I may have to further decorate it sometime or make a whole new one when inspiration hits.

Here's an in-progress shot, when I had finished free-motion quilting the back of the stocking.

And here are shots of all five stockings. 



and Tim's

Oh, and guess what, Kelley.........
all five of
MY stockings
 are the SAME SIZE !

I also wanted to note the new charm squares I got for my birthday. 
Both best-pal gals, JodieAnn and Wanda, in Oklahoma, sent me charms......and they could even go together in the same project, the colors are so similar ! 



  1. Ohhh, boo to being sick! That's no good.
    The stockings are all so cute - what a treasure for them to have.


Thanks for stopping by !
