.....when my dear friend, Terri, visited this summer, she brought me a stack of solid fabric fat quarters that she had bought from an Amish woman when she and our other dear friend, Wanda, visited Pennsylvania.
Looking for inspiration, I browsed around on Flickr and came across this beauty. I won't share the picture here, but you should definitely click on the link and look at ALL of the pictures of this quilt ! Outstanding.
I was really taken with the core design. of this quilt; it has stayed in the back of my mind for over a month now, and just had to come out today. Having enough fabric to make a wallhanging, I wanted to be sure that I would actually hang something in our home to enjoy; so I went with the blue and the black from the stack of fabrics (the wallpaper in my kitchen has blue in the floral bouquets). I added the blue and white print for a nostalgic look, and to coordinate with the quilt kit that Wanda gave me (more on that later when I have a bigger space of time to make that quilt).
Tomorrow morning I'm supposed to keep Allyssia for a bit, and I want to give her all my attention. I so seldom get to play with the little ones, so I'm going to give it my best. She's such a sweetie pie.
" 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
