" 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

Fun with solids

Yesterday, enduring yet another of these cold, snowy Winter days, I spent time in the sewing room.......I just love being able to say that.........yes, the sewing room, playing with my set of solid strips from Connecting Threads.  I started out to make something big, but I stumbled across a piece of fabric that would coordinate with many of the colors, and it was only a half-yard cut.  So, I revised my plans, chose colors closest to the print, and made enough blocks for a baby-sized quilt.  That's a good use for these colors anyway, don't you think?
 The print fabric is from Valori Wells.  I bought enough of one large print to back a quilt, but only half-yard cuts of several others.  I wish I had more !

The little top wound up measuring approximately 36 inches, square.  I would like to IMMEDIATELY dig out something to back it with and go to work on the quilting.  I always mean to spend this hibernation time QUILTING, but I forget that in order to do that I need to BASTE up a bunch of quilts during warm weather, when I can do it outside in my yard !  It's just killing me not to be quilting on the brown quilt, but I don't have a suitable back yet, nor have I decided WHERE I will baste it.


  1. This is a fabulous pattern! Love what you have done with the solids! And the focus fabric is so sweet!

    Lots of snow and ice here..ready for spring!

  2. That is so cheerful, and the print is delicious!
