" 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

Awful picture.....

My precious husband assures me that I don't look like this.
 We don't know WHERE this lady came from !
.......but I have BEGUN !

And, WOW, it's been awhile since I've quilted anything with a polyester batting.........and it is WONDERFUL !

I started quilting on Jennifer's embroidered states quilt today, and I am perplexed about how to quilt around the embroidery.  So I've started by just outlining the blocks' sashing and stars, and quilting along the embroidered 'state name banner'.

The quilt was basted on a long-arm machine, and has long stretches of thread between stitches that must be 6 inches apart.  Because of this, the threads want to catch on everything that comes in contact with the quilt.  VERY FRUSTRATING.....but it was way too big for me to baste, and JoAnn is in no condition to baste one the way we used to, so WHATCHA' GONNA DO?

the best you can.
