" 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

Poor photos........

I mean, the colors are way off on the red/teal set, but, I enjoyed a good afternoon of sewing.

I made a couple of potholders for myself a few days ago, after realizing during Thanksgiving that my potholders were in BAD shape !  For mine, I used some blue and green scraps I had, mixed with Tufted Tweets couch print.

Then when I got the birthday package from Wanda Gayle, I saw that the fabrics she sent would be perfect in my niece's kitchen.
Here's a fuzzy photo I found online of the actual colors of the fabrics.  It's Lila Tueller's woodland bloom.

  So, today I paper-pieced a couple of patterns that I made up on the spot, and finished the blocks into potholders for part of her Christmas gift.



I hope to find some coordinating kitchen towels to put with these.

Next, I'd like to make a couple that would go with a kitchen decorated with an apple theme.

  1. Dotty, What cute pot holders! We all could probably look through our drawers and make room for some nicer quilted potholders than that old burn an dirty ones! What a thoughtful gift idea and a fun little project! So glad you have an awesome neighbor to cook your cake(s)!
    Happy quilting!
