...I gave up the spare bedroom in exchange for making it a full sewing room..........I'm much happier, though I wish I could have both at once !
I finished hand-quilting a challenge that I had accepted from Wanda Gayle. She sent me some finished blocks in the Jacob's Ladder pattern, and some already cut-out flowers along with a pattern. I assembled the blocks together and used the appliques in a little bit different way. I hope that she will post a photo of the quilt, as I don't have a working camera right now, nor internet access at home.
I also pieced a quilt-top today and yesterday, from batiks and Fossil Ferns that JodieAnn sent to me over time. I used a mottled cream fabric as background and it came out just beautiful. In fact that's why I'm in town right now.......on my way to purchase a batting with which to put it together.
Hope everything is blessings with all of you ! Love,
" 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
