Praise !

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
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.

The thaw has come......

....to the temperatures, but I'm frozen in place, quilt-wise !  I just don't seem to be able to cut those gorgeous fabrics.  My local fabric store doesn't have any solid medium-grey fabric for me to use as my shadows for the optical illusion, and the rest of the fabrics keep teasing me to come up with a different design.  ugggghhhhh!     It's maddening ! 

My husband sees me at the cutting table, staring at the fabrics, and he says, "what'cha makin'?"  I say, "As long as I don't cut, it can be ANYTHING.......but as soon as I cut and sew, it's a done deal, there's only the one quilt instead of the myriad of possibilities !" 

In a different direction, I ordered some flannel from a seller on Etsy, to use as a backing on a little quilt top that I pieced for a young mother at church's baby boy.  I had ordered some snowglobe fabric from Connecting Threads, but it turned out to be too aqua for the blue scraps I used.  This latest purchase is a penguin-bordered blue flannel for which she only wanted $1.50 per yard !  I bought the 2 yards she had in stock, and will be glad to have it whether it works for this project or not. 

My camera card is playing hooky again, so no photos today !

Be well and be blessed...........and productive, unlike me !
