" 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

GOD is good !

And His peace abounds !

It's Monday morning again, and I've been busy with first-of-the-week household chores.   Got some laundry done, a big pot of potato soup made (along with muffins and bacon to go with it, of course), dishes washed from that job, and the hubby's hair cut.  It is such a beautiful day outside today, and PRAISE GOD, I'm feelin' FINE !
Now having gotten all the fabric for Jennifer's quilt top, I can buckle down to that project.  She's done the most beautiful hand-embroidery, using the patterns for the fifty United States, along with the state flowers.  I will attempt to add sashes, and complete the top before mailing it back to Jodie to be basted.  Then, she wants to send it BACK to me for hand-quilting.
I hope to start cutting and sewing on the sashes this afternoon.
Maybe I can do a little mock-up in EQ4 to show you what I have in mind.


In the meantime, I've done a little bit more fabric acquisition !  I made my third fabric-searching foray out to the second-hand store, "The Ultimate Garage Sale"; and this time I came away with 4 one-yard pieces of gorgeous nearly-tone-on-tone prints.  I only paid $7.75 for the four, altogether !


AND, Jodie sent me these fabric remnants as a birthday/Christmas surprise (I just realized that the one-yard piece didn't make it into the photo), and it has me in the mood to play.............but that will have to wait just a bit !


So, now that my lunch is settling, I think I'll see how much more work I can get into.  Love to you all.........and peace in Christ JESUS !

  5. Hi Dolly! love...love your header! and your fabric is beautiful and then some. I'm glad to know you enjoy reading too. Karen K. and Gary Smalley are good authors. I hadn't thought of it before, but blogging is sort of like having pen pals...only its open to the whole world. I am chilly...here in my pc/library room. Just finished another of my birthday Lego bird kits....this one was a hummingbird and a lot easier....and so fun to have finished it and just sit back and admire. Wishing you blessings, Maggie
