........Jeff gave me a nearly 20 pound turkey to roast, and I made all the fixin's to go along with it, dressing, peas, real mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, gravy, pies (chocolate and chess), rolls, cranberry sauce (from a can). Jeff brought deviled eggs and a peach cobbler. He came in time to eat with hubby and myself. Then his daughter Mandy came with her boyfriend, and her son and daughter.......she brought baked apple slices. Then, surprise-surprise, my brother, Jim, called and said that he was in town and wanted directions to my place ! So he came over and Jjeff came back and we visited and he ate too.
I got up first thing this morning searching for Black Friday internet sales, specifically Connecting Threads. I ordered a collection of fat-quarters called Rivera II, (it's sold out, but it's the fabrics used in this wallhanging)and checked out. Then I went back and found something else and by the time I called to see if they could add it to the first order, the second thing I picked out was GONE ! I wish I had atleast copied a picture of the quilt in the kit so that I could buy the individual fabrics to make it without the kit ! Oh well, it gave me an idea for a quilt out of some fabric I ordered 2 years ago on Cyber Monday !
Enjoy the rest of this weekend, and be safe if you're on the highway ! Be blessed !
" 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
