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.

Work in Progress........

........I've gotten to where I don't post pictures of my quilt tops until they're nearly done.  That makes it look like, POOF, I just whipped something up overnight....ain't I amazin' ? 

I guess I've gotten into that habit because as sure as I announce a project, like this one, I'm just as sure to get side-tracked onto something else.

But, having said that, I wanted to mention, here, that I've cut out and am in the process of beginning a couch-sized quilt.  I wanted to get into my 'browns' drawer and use some fabrics that I've ignored for quite a while.  Looking through a sketch-notepad of quilt designs I've drawn, I ran across one that I made up once before.  I reworked it a bit and started cutting.

I've wasted today, when I could have been sewing, because the next part I want to piece is also the part that's easiest to transport.  You see, our quilting group meets tomorrow, and since we don't meet in the months of November and December, due to holiday busyness, I'm really ready to see these girls again.  Tuesdays are also the day that we unload the truck at the church for the food-giveaway, so I can only devote a couple of hours to the get-together.  Hopefully, I can take my featherweight sewing machine and my piecing and spend a couple of joyful hours in good company.  I certainly hope that the cold temperatures don't keep everyone away ! 

So, here's the beginning layout of the latest adventure.

This photo lets me see where I need to move a few pieces around for better balance.  Love that !
