......is like a day without sunshine. Blessedly, today I had plenty of each.
While the snow continued to melt, outside, I wanted to play, inside, without committing to a big project; so, I decided to try some string blocks. I cut 4 squares from typing paper, 8 1/2 inches square, and used a gently striped fabric for the center diagonal strip. Then I just kept adding strips on each side, using the scrap bag containing leftovers from Judy's cross quilt, and MaryLee's Diagonal Gardens quilt.
This serves as a welcome and a shout-out to my newest follower, Annie, whose kitten slept in a basket on her sewing table the entire time she 'played'.
Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth fainteth not, neither is weary? There is no searching of His understanding. He giveth power to the faint, and to them that have no might, He increaseth strength. Isaiah 41: 28,29
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.
"Two things I request of You (deprive me not before I die):
Remove falsehood and lies far from me;
give me neither poverty nor riches--feed me with the food allotted to me;
lest I be full and deny You, and say, "Who is the LORD?"
Or lest I be poor and steal, and profane the name of my God." Proverbs 30: 7-9
