Praise !


The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
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.

Happy Labor long summer !

Unofficially, it's a wrap.  I know we'll have some heat for a while longer, but September means 'it's coming!".  Not too soon for me........I just adore the Fall season !
Finished measurement-21 inches square

I basted the Amish wallhanging this weekend, and got a chance to machine-quilt it today.  I used the walking foot for stitching in the ditch, and then played a bit with the free-motion quilting.  I've grown rusty, and my movements were not smooth at all.  I wound up having to do quite a bit of un-quilting, which was NOT an easy feat since my machine 'coasts' to a stop, making a lot of tiny stitches in place at end points.

Pictures are not too good, as the center wants to be washed out.  But the batteries are low in the camera and are recharging as I type, so these photos will have to do.
Here's a little bit better shot of the center.
 I'm so glad to have this hanging to put on my kitchen wall to remind me of Wanda and Terri visiting me this summer after 3 long years of missing them.


  1. What a beautiful reminder of good friends and blessed times!


  2. Love the quilting on this quilt (and the design too.)
    I am not, not, not ready for the end of summer! Maybe by the equinox, but definitely not now. I'm already bemoaning how late the sun rises and how early it sets!

  3. How striking this turned out! Beautiful work.

  4. Hi Dolly, I love this blue wall hanging. What a sweet remembrance for your visit with friends. I love Autumn the best of any season!


Thanks for stopping by !
