JoAnn has asked me to piece two of these star tops, and I finished the first one this week. She sends me the fabric and pattern, and I piece them and send them back to her. This one arrived at her house today according to the tracking updates.
This is Hero's Tribute, by Liz Porter, for Love of Quilting magazine.
I must wait on more background fabric before piecing the second one. Plus, she is sending Jennifer's embroidered state flowers quilt back out to me to be hand-quilted. MaryEllen basted it for me on her longarm quilting machine, I think.
And, I have been told that my niece is expecting her third child, a boy, after having had 2 girls, so I'm trying to decide what I want to make for her.
My Crape Myrtle bushes are really showing the results of the Miracle Grow spikes that my husband insisted on using this year.
I had fun with this shot of the driveway flowers, taken from inside the double Rose of Sharon bush.
I really like this Coleus that I put out into the shade garden to grow among the new Hostas. This Hosta on the left that is doing so well is called "Fragrant Dream".
" 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
