" 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

I am BEAT ! ! !

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 !


  1. So glad you got work done before the rain! Take a break, rest, renew and enjoy the lovely fabric! Celebrate and sew!


Thanks for stopping by !
