Nah, not really, but you can either have it NEAT, or you can get some inspiration and work going, am I right?
I figured out a design that I wanted to use for a baby quilt that is needed for an anticipated September arrival, so I dragged out the appropriate fabrics (thanks once again to Jodie Ann's leftovers), and got to work yesterday. Well, it didn't take long for the room to look like a bomb had been dropped on it. But, inspiration reigns !
On the other side of the coin, I am just jumping with excitement and anticipation of a couple of my dearest Oklahoma galpals arriving this week to stay overnight on their long drive home. My husband asked yesterday, in front of his 59 year-old nephew, "honey, are you going to straighten up this mess before your friends arrive?" REALLY?
LORD, I know that you set the solitary in families, and I am blessed to have been married to this man for over 35 years now, but........REALLY? Where do they get these questions? I think maybe it is because they were formed from the dust of the earth, and we were formed from good substantial BONE, albeit theirs. I don't know, but we surely are different.
Anyway, never fear, Wanda and Terri........you are welcomed with open arms, a picked up home, and hopefully, LORD willing, a big pot of that Chicken and Dumplings that we used to enjoy during our quiltathons !
Then, next week, we'll think about this quilt.......
" 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
