" 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

The yard is calling !

Yesterday's temperature reached 60, and today was as warm, but more windy.  Not being able to resist, I raked leaves from more flowerbeds today, discovering lovely little green starts peeking their way out of the ground.  I saw "Seven Steps to Heaven", Phlox, Daisies,  Rose bushes, Irises, Candy Tuft, Violets.....all starting to wake up again !

A young man came to measure our roof and give us an estimate for covering it with metal.  Another roofer comes tomorrow to discuss his estimate.  God has blessed us with hopefully enough insurance compensation to pay for the new roof and possibly a couple of other small repairs.

Also, today I received my package from Connecting Threads.  I managed to snag a great deal on their backing fabric when it was on sale, and only paid $8.36 per yard for their $11.96 per yard  104 inch-wide fabric.  Not knowing what I'll use it for, I chose a color that I thought would work on a number of quilts.....it is called 'silver lining', and a couple of hours after receiving my 3 yard piece, I noticed that the sky outside was mimicking the fabric's name !
Isn't that just like God to give me a smile that way ! ? !

Tuesday I should receive my other score........I found fabric for $3.49 per yard, a Riley Blake large leaf print, to back my brown and diamonds strip quilt, plus a beige-colored print for the binding at the same great price, from Fabric.com.  Their sale goes until midnight on the 10th; it's called the cotton print blowout sale, and they brag about prices of $5.95, but I saw quite a few fabrics priced at $3.49 !

Post Script:  I was thinking about 'low volume' fabrics a couple of days ago, and realized that, what with my vocal nerve damage,  I myself am now LOW VOLUME !    ha ha ha ha ha ha !
