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.

Contrary Wife, Ornery Husband, top finished

Immediately after making Kelley's "Bejewelled Hearts" wallhanging, I returned to Jennifer's quilt top and added the borders to finish it.

Once again, I didn't have room to lay it out flat in my home for a photo, and the heat discouraged me from hanging it on the clothesline.  Besides that, I was afraid that it would pick up dirt from the yard, as it measurd over 80 by 90 inches.

But I got the quilttop sent back to JoAnn and she was very pleased.

I am now nearing the end of piecing one of two couch-sized tops for her, using the same fabrics (if there is enough), but putting a red border on one, and a blue one on the other.  I HOPE I can make myself piece the SECOND one !

Here's a peek at my progress thus far:

 This is a pattern that was published in "Love of Quilting".  It is called "Hero's Tribute", and was designed by Liz Porter.  There are lots of 4 inch stars still to be added, and then rectangles of various background fabrics to fill in the holes.

My Rose of Sharon bushes are blooming now, as is my Butterfly Bush (not shown),

the Crape Myrtles are showing out beautifully,

 Hubby's Moss Roses are putting on a nice show along with his Morning Glories.
Bugs are really prevalent this year, making a mess of all the foliage on these flowers.
And the Jerusalem Artichokes have begun to bloom, although something is eating off nearly every bud before it can open !
