.....I've been working on the brown quilt. I did get to go to the quilting get-together yesterday, and it was SO enjoyable. You know, I can sew just about anytime I want, for as long as I want, here at home, but there's just something so great about doing it in a room with other people who are as interested in the craft as you are. There are projects going on all around you, with opportunities to give an opinion (when asked), or share a tip. You get praise and constructive criticism (if asked for) on your own finished and in-progress projects. I miss my Oklahoma Outlaws so much, but this was nice !
When I awakened yesterday, to a temperature of about 15 degrees outside and a powdering of snow on the streets, I was afraid that the day's activities would have to be cancelled for me. I have no experience driving on snow. But I went out and swept the back porch, and the snow was so dry that it was like sweeping flour or something. So I reasoned that the road wouldn't be slippery, and I was right. I got to go at around 9 a.m., and I stayed until about noon.
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.
