..............before collapsing into bed !
I've begun a new project.
After cutting strips for DAYS, I starting sewing strips onto these 10-inch foundation papers that I purchased from Missouri Quilt Company. It is slow going, mainly because I am having trouble with the strips that are cut widthwise of the fabric, you know, from selvedge to selvedge. They want to lump up, stretching ahead of the presser foot, and a walking foot didn't seem to help.
MAJOR TIP: Cut your strips on the lengthwise grain ! Why haven't I read this anywhere lately while doing my string quilt research?
Anyway, it's a GOOD START. I'm dying to stitch together the 16 squares that I finished today, but I'm afraid that I will run out of these colors and have to add in a bunch of new fabrics, and then the next part of the quilt would be noticeably different. So, I really need to wait until I've pieced ALL the blocks, and THEN put them together. YUCK !
But, it's looking so good to me, that I really DO want to make it some kind of BED-SIZE.
So.............PATIENCE is called for. Praise the LORD, this is fun, though !
Well, I also mowed the yard today and cut the hubby's hair, so I'm done.
Night all !
" 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
