" 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

Goldie is home !

Praise God, back in September, in this post and this post I told you about a dear friend and sort -of family member who had been diagnosed with Cancer.  Well, she underwent radiation treatments, which shrunk the tumor, and has now been released to come home.  I got to go over to her house and spend some time with her on Friday, and she is in good spirits, able to get around in a wheel chair or a walker.  God is so good !........I just can't say it enough.

Quilting-wise, I haven't done much in the last few days.  I did attempt to piece a block tonight that I found drafted in an old graph-pad notebook that I've kept for many, many years.  I wanted to make a couple of these and turn them into hotpads, but I'm not sure now what I'll do.  It looks a lot better in the photograph than I could see in the poor light of my living room.   I might just have to try a yellow one or a pink one to go with it. 
Wow, seeing it here on the monitor, I think that it is quite beautiful !


Happy belated birthday wishes to my best pal, JodieAnn !  Your card is on it's way !

  1. Well - my name is Rose and generally "rose" things don't attract me, but the simplicity and color choices of this block caught my eye. I guess if I get a chance I'd like to give it a go - with your permission. Don't know when this will happen, but...
    Just found your blog and love where your quilting is at. I think I'm a few steps behind in machine quilting, but I need to practice on this new machine I was given, and you've inspired me.
