Praise !

The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
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.

Contrary Wife quilt top

I finished piecing the center of the Contrary Wife quilt top.  I don't have room to lay it out and show the whole thing.

Now Jodie needs to pick border fabrics.......
pink solid outer border
green solid outer border or green print
pink print outer border
I have 2 more tops to make for her, both of which are couch-size, and then I think I will stick to a no-triangle-matching policy !   These triangles needed to match up perfectly in diagonal rows, and let's just say........perfect ain't happenin' no matter how many times I rip and redo !  But I gave it my best, I think.

On the gardening front, these new Hummingbird Vine flowers started blooming today.


  They are planted in my window boxes that usually just hold our Moss Roses.  Rose gave me some seed from a packet of seed that she bought; they are a member of the Morning Glory family.

My tall purple Phlox bloomed today too, but I failed to remember to get a photo.(UPDATE: photo at header)  I've managed to get 2/3 of the yard mowed over the last couple of evenings, with a bit of help from hubby.  The new self-propelled mower makes it much easier.

Hubby's squash plants and cucumber plants have already yielded a few fruit, and I muchly enjoyed a cucumber cut up in my tuna and mayo.  Rose took a couple of squash home with her today to boil up and turn into squash/onion patties for her son.  The tomato plants are loaded with knobby tomatoes, but it will be weeks before we are eating them, I think.

  1. Oh boy, I like your new blog look, it's very nice :). I have never seen a hummingbird plant, it's leaves are as interesting as its flowers. And those quilts you are making are all kinds of pretty! The different fabrics are yummy. We just bought a length of upholstery fabric to make a tablecloth, just need to hem it is all. I love the delicate floral look of it. So you have a kitty cat too, sweet!
