" 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

It's been a big week !

I finished the little quilt that I was hand-quilting.


I've named it

GARDEN'S GATE
It measures around 40 inches by 46 inches. It is my own original design.  I pieced and appliqued it atleast a year ago, probably quite a bit longer ago.

 I quilted each of the brown diamonds into 4 sections, and quilted a smaller diamond in the center of each colorful diamond.

Each border received a different quilting design; the top and right borders were quilted by following the design elements in the prints; the left border used a stencil of flower and vine, and the bottom border received vertical lines one inch apart.

The back is made up of various pieces of red/pink/white printed fabrics that I had stashed away.

 I wish I had the energy to use up my DRAWERS full of fabric like this !  I love this type of back on a quilt.


Also, the LORD has seen fit to let me win another wonderful prize.....

































...this time from a drawing at our local health fair.  I was contacted this afternoon to let me know that I had won the 1100 watt Nutri Ninja Professional pitcher/singleserve blender !
I hope I will now be able to enjoy fruit in my diet again !  Drinking fruit would be much easier for me than eating it !  God is just so very good to me.......not just when I win things !  ALL THE TIME !  But winning surely is fun !
