" 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

Happy Labor Day.......so 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 !
