" 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

16-patch quilting has begun !

I've begun the hand-quilting on the Sixteen-Patch quilt, and I am enjoying these snatched hours of crafting pleasure.  I'm not worrying about the size of the stitches......this quilt is to ENJOY the process, and the product !

UPDATE:  Today at work, I received a "happy to help" pin, an acknowledgement of a job well done !



  1. You inspire me with things like this! You'd be proud of me today (well, maybe) I made 4 fabric no sew bookmarkers and they turned out so pretty. Maybe tomorrow I'll post a pic. sending you hugs, Maggie Ann

  2. YES, I'm proud of you ! Please share pics ! I wanna see !

  3. Hi Dolly, that quilt is gorgeous. I enjoy hand quilting too and like to have one to quilt on during the winter. I have gotten rid of my quilting frame and enjoy using a hand held hoop. That way I can quilt in the evenings watching TV and keep warm under the quilt as I work :)
    Happy quilting.
    Connie :)

  4. That quilt is really fun! I love that you are enjoying the process!! It looks so nicely pieced too! Go you!! 😊

  5. Just like any artist, there isn't work when the creation of piece is so beautiful.


Thanks for stopping by !
