" 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

Happy Mother's Day........a bit late !

I'm back online for a bit.......had it turned back on today, so here I am at the computer again after not touching it for so long.

I have pictures of the pink baby quilt to share.  I finished it about two weeks ago, and sent it on to Michigan.  The mommy-to-be was very pleased with it.

I warned you that it was going to be simple. 
They wanted the quilting to be the focal point.
In this picture, you can see how it's size relates to the top of a queen-sized mattress.  It finished around  40 inches x 42 inches.

Here you can see the quilting designs a little better...........and the darker pink flannel print that I used for the backing.

This is really all that I accomplished except for finishing the pillows for my couch.  I almost hate to share them since you saw SO MANY pictures of the zigzag quilt before I took my hiatus.
But here's a quick shot besides the one in my header.

I did have a wonderful week-long visit from my daughter, son-in-law, and three grandkids during the month of March.  It was way fun, and I can hardly wait until we do it again.  Seth even called me today by special request, just as I was heading out the door to church !  He yelled, "NANA !"


Isn't that precious ?
Praise the LORD !
