" 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

Getting back to the 'travelin'

You'd almost believe she'll help, huh?

I now have my stack of blocks ready for layout.  It's been a wild few days, rearranging furniture and rooms, doing this and that, while squeezing in a little bit of sewing when I could.

evidence of pawprints !
Lottie says that she's going to help, but that hasn't been the actuality usually when I start to lay out blocks.  Somehow they wind up skewed or generally squished with pawprints !

Anyway, I attempted a partial layout last night, and really had trouble getting seam allowances to oppose the way I wanted........and no, I didn't do like I said and lay it out and THEN press.  Oh, well, I may go for a different layout if I have too much trouble. 

But first, I need to go and get some potatoes all peeled and cut up for the potato soup I hope to have for lunch.  A rainy winter day, a new quilt layout, and hot soup, topped with cheese, red onions, and bacon..............wow, sounds like a great day a comin'.  Thank you, LORD !

  1. Looks like you've been bitten by the Scrappy Trips too! I love this block.

    I won all the blocks in the Block Lotto the month we made them back in Nov. 2011. My April 2012 post shows my top and the different layouts I played with.

    I like your softer colors!


Thanks for stopping by !
