" 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

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 !
