I mean, I am so wore out, I can hardly sit here and type ! I did one partial row in my garden today, this time an un-tilled section, and it was so wearying, if that's a word. My arms want to scream, "I can't keep this up another minute", and I rest for a few seconds and then go again. Then there is a huge pile of dirt all worked down to the end of the row, that needs to be raked BACK up throughout the entire length of the row ! And it is SO HEAVY!
Hubby was hoping that I would complete the last of the tilling tomorrow, but heard that it is going to rain for the next 3 days. I say, "Thank you, dear heavenly Father !"
In the meantime, I should receive my order from Fabric.com tomorrow. I ordered 5 1/2 yards of this print
thinking that I would back my Scrappy TripAlong quilt top with it (which, by the way, I have pieced an additional 6 blocks for, and just need to add them to the length). But I really, really, REALLY like this print, atleast what I can tell about it from the online photos, and I may not want to use it for this top. We'll see.
It is a HUGE print, which I always love for quilt backs, with some of the flowers measuring 6 inches across !
Anyway, I'm fading fast, so I'll stop for now. Wishing you all a restful night's sleep !
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"
The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.
