" 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

Covering my bets !

Just IN CASE I don't win that giveaway, I did a little bit of fabric shopping online where I ACTUALLY paid for my choices.........Ha !

I cancelled Fabric.com's emails back when I dropped the internet for awhile.  Previous to that, I received regular emails from them announcing sales and offering coupon discounts......which I LOVED !

Well, when I starting getting internet access at home again,  I re-subscribed to their emails (several times now ), but they have never started re-sending them and I very much miss their coupons !

So, tonight I've perused their clearance fabrics and found fabric for backing this quilt

Seth's quilt-top



and I added enough half-yard cuts to the order to qualify for free shipping.  I hope that this new order will encourage them to start sending the specials to me again.

Here's the fabric I chose for Seth's back........
Gone Fishing Ribbit Geo Navy--Fabric.com


and here are the other four goodies I can't wait to get.

I'm hoping to collect blues and greens for a soothing all blue and green quilt........
Chains Black/Blue - Fabric.com

Timeless treasures Mechanical Genius Hexagon Navy - Fabric.com


And these dots look like great fabrics for making bindings, don't you think?

I finished the orange peel quiltie for the kitchen wall, but don't have a good photo of it yet.

Today, hubby and I marked off a section of the yard for an actual vegetable garden we'd like to plant next Spring.  I tilled up about a 3-4 ft width times the length of the thing (have no idea how big we've made it.)   I'll have to do a section every once in awhile, as the vibration from the tiller makes my hands feel all crazy.
