" 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

Fruits of Fall--sensing a theme here.......

.........could we say that I'm working well ahead of schedule?


I've finished another Fall-themed quiltie, but, truly, I'm definitely NOT working ahead.  This poor little wall-hanging was started way back in the '90's sometime.  The pattern was contained in a calendar featuring a different wall-hanging for each month of the year.  I can't remember who the quilt artist or company publishing the calendar was.   It's amazing that I even held onto the project for this long, but, the point is, I finally finished it. 
The top is machine-pieced, and hand-appliqued.  It was hand-quilted in  small q-snap frames, employs cotton batting, and measures about 28 inches square.  I used a bright plaid fabric for the back of it.

  3. Wolf i cant remember her first name but it was on a calendar with a pattern each month. WELLLLL i have been cleaning my sewing room. i have moved all my 1900 fabric to the closet and have put my new modern fabric to the cabinets. what a mess only found 1 fiddle back pretty good for all the c--- i have everywhere in there. anyway i am exhausted and frustrated. i will never ever quilt all this fabric in my lifetime. i am at the point i even cannot remember why i bought some of it. wow i have some GORGEOUS fabric !!!! i am at the point i have to do more complicated quits or i dont feel the $$$$ we spend for fabric is okay when we do something toooo quick and spend 200.00 just for the top and not the back. also, did you get in on the fabric.com sale wow, i did i got a bunch of fabric. i got some of the girlie girl for tansy's quilt of course one of them they did not have the fabric anymore after i ordered it ,but went back on line and got a different version for the back, it did not matter i just wanted the extra 30% off of the fabric, got a few more pieces i needed and did not feel like they stripped me down.
    well better get back to cleaning. Loved talking to you the other night. we need to do that more often
