Praise !

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? I Corinthians 3:16
Psalm 31: 7, 8
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.

Lagging behind........

.....I am so bad about posting here !

I finished the new quilt top on Wednesday, I think.  It's really big for a couch quilt, but that seems to be the way I make them lately.  I guess it comes from my napping on the couch......I'm pretty tall, and I hate it when a nap quilt won't cover my feet while letting me snuggle it against my cheek.  So I try to keep THAT in mind when I make them for other people.

Anyway, the big piece of fabric from last weekend's "score" worked out perfectly for the border.



























  I call this one, "Marking Time", and it measures around 60 by 80 inches.  I haven't chosen backing fabric yet, as I expect that I won't get a chance to baste it until the weather opens up again in the Spring and I can do it outside.

But I went back to the second-hand store this weekend and made my second score !   I had messaged the lady who runs the store, and asked her to look and see if she could locate a copy of Electric Quilt among the sewing supplies she had.  While I was perusing the aisles this Friday, I looked over, and there sat EQ4 on a shelf that I had already passed once.

 I asked her if she had put it out for me, and she said that, no, she hadn't had any luck finding what I wanted.  Well, I don't believe in luck.......I KNOW that God blessed me by putting that right there where I HAD to see it myself !   She let me have it for $4.00, and I loaded it onto my computer when I got home.  I know it's not the latest version, but IT IS the version that I had before, so I am perfectly comfortable in knowing how to use it !   SCORE again, praise the LORD !
