" 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

Little Orange Peel........

......finished !

Here are a couple of shots I managed to get today.
Shown on a twin-sized bed

The little quiltie finished at 27 1/2 inches square.  I backed it with the same polka-dots that I used on the Blushing Bloomers quilt.  These are the same fabrics that were used in the top of that quilt, also.......I cut out 5 inch squares at the same time that I cut the other quilt pieces.  I then drew the peel shape onto the squares, placed one over a light-colored 5-inch square,

 and machine-zigzagged over the drawn line.  At that point, I trimmed the top, colored fabric right up against the machine-stitching.

Because I had leftover triangles from making the border on the other quilt, I started stitching those triangles together today, based on an idea I got from Wanda of Exuberant Color.   I love the idea , but it's all I can do not to stitch them together into bigger pieced squares !   I need to MAKE myself put them away so that I can add to them, but I trimmed them down to 2 inches square, and I don't know if I'd EVER make enough of that size to make something substantial.  It would really be neat-looking if I could stick with it though.

Here are some of the ones from today.
