" 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

Back to the cold !

After 2 beautiful, warm, sunny days spent outdoors, (discovering my first buttercup blooms),  today's temperature started out around 62 and fell all day with a cold north wind.  They're saying we might have snow flurries tonight.  Hubby said, "oh, no ! "  I say, "if it's gonna be cold anyway, atleast give me the beauty of the snowflakes flying!"

So, I spent this day INDOORS, doing housework, cooking, and trying to figure out a backing design for the brown/diamonds quilt.

  I received my backing fabric,
A design by Riley Blake, purchased from Fabric.com
 which I have to piece, so I'm trying to use the leftover lopped-off triangles to work some red into the back design.



I may just have it worked out now.

I cooked a meatloaf, real mashed potatoes, and a wonderful pot of white beans with chunks of leftover ham for supper tonight.  Yummy, good, cold weather comfort food !  Good thing I have trouble eating or I'd be fat as a town dog !
Believe me, though, I got down a good (healthy?) portion !  Praise God !

 Tomorrow, the roofer is scheduled to start work, so I have a good excuse to hang close to home and sew.

Hope your week ends well !
