" 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

Bye-bye WIFI

Sorry to be absent for so long !

I'm awaiting a new bundle price from Spectrum again, so I'm using Hardee's WIFI for now.

But all is good on the homefront, and I've squeezed in a bit of sewing time lately.  Here are the photos of my finished Orange (Aqua/blue/green) Peels quilt top.  It measures 77 x 94, bigger than the wide backing that I purchased for it months ago, so I'll be re-shopping for a back.

It's going to be quite a job getting this one basted out on the covered carport, so I'm waiting and watching for a nice, warm, still day.


  1. Beautiful!!!...kinda makes me want to attempt a "peel" quilt...please share more about it, did you hand-applique or ???...thanks!

    1. I’m glad you like it. And sorry that I didn’t have time for a detailed post. I cut squares from various white and grey fabrics for background squares, starting out at 5 1/4 square, then after needle turning/hand appliqueing the peels to them (basted on) , I trimmed all the squares to 5 1/8 inches. This left the peels not quite touching at the points, which made for easier machine joining, but still close enough to present an all-over continuous design.

      Let me know if you have any further questions. And thanks for stopping by.


  2. Oh!!! I love this one!! So calm and soothing.I like how you used the low volume fabrics as the background. I need to make a blue and green quilt someday!

  3. What a beautiful quilt! God has certainly blessed you with a creative talent.

  4. Lovely! You are so talented. Spring is almost here....I hope. We are busily getting ready for a visit with our daughter and grandsons. Oh, happy day!


Thanks for stopping by !
