" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???

The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth." Isaiah 40:28

"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10

Jesus said,
"For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

But if you do not forgive men their sins,
your Father will not forgive your sins." Matthew 6:14,15

Potholders....2nd Christmas gift set

After making paper-pieced cup and bowl potholders for one niece, I was told that the other niece had an
apple-themed border going around the top of her kitchen; so, I set out to design a foundation-pieced apple block.   But not liking my design, I drew up an apple to hand-applique instead.

Here's what I came up with......

I hand-drew this apple, and reversed the side that the leaf is on for each apple.

Then I hand-appliqued the apples, using needle-turn applique.

I found some  green kitchen towels to go with these, and amazingly, without having the potholders with me while shopping, the color of the towels is the same shade of green as this green fabric print.

Our weather has finally turned cold, so I got groceries a day early to avoid going out tomorrow.  Today started out around 55 degrees, but the temperature went down all day, and a fierce cold wind made it feel much colder.  Tonight is supposed  to reach 27, I think.  It's high time it was this cold, so I'm not complaining, praise the LORD.  We are warm and snuggly and the pantry is full.  My God supplies all of my needs as promised in His Word !

Oh, I almost forgot.......the crew came back this past weekend and finished out the front porch's roof.  Yay, praise GOD !.....but I keep forgetting to get photos.  Oh, well, the sun WILL shine again, and I'll snap a few photos.

I'm still living without a dryer, not because I can't afford a new one, but because I CAN live without one right now.  As I may have mentioned before, it was the washer that I was expecting to quit working, not the dryer; so, I'm giving the washer a little time, incase I need to buy a set instead of one odd appliance.   I dried a load inside today, and a load on the clothesline yesterday before the weather changed.
