Praise !

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? I Corinthians 3:16
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.

Connecting Threads package..........

....arrived today, and has me longing to start Seth's quilt.  It should be a quickie to make, based on the design shown in these fabrics on Connecting Thread's website.  You could buy a kit for the quilt, including all fabric AND the pattern, measuring about 63 by 71, for $20. + change.   Instead, I ordered extra stacks and yardage for borders, hoping to enlarge the pattern to 72 x 90 or so.

We'll see how long it takes me to actually get around to piecing it.  Atleast I wrote the kids a letter today and sent my daughter some seeds from the flowers blooming in my yard.

I took the quick way out, and machine zig-zagged my orange peels........I realized that I just wasn't at a place in my life where I wanted to start a long-term project.  So, for instant gratification, I made 36 blocks, each measuring 4 1/2 inches.     I like it, but don't know if I want to stop at this size.  It would be a great size for my kitchen wall, but I'll sit and stare at it for awhile before I go farther.

  3. Its a beauty...I love every quilt you makes...it seems! I was just on a blog with a 'penny quilt' she picked up for $10.00 with masking taped edges. My Mom embroidered me a quilt and masking taped the quilt batting together. She said the tape would eventually wash away...right! grin. I loved her anyway.
