“I have given skill to all the skillful, so that they may make all that I have commanded you. “ Exodus 31:6

“O Thou who art the all pervading glory of the world, we bless Thee for the power of beauty to gladden our hearts.
We praise Thee that even the least of us may feel a thrill of the creative joy when we give form and substance to our thoughts and, beholding our handiwork, find it good and fair. “.
Walter Rauschenbusch


"Come, and listen, all you who fear God; let me tell you what He has done for me.
I cried out to Him with my mouth; His praise was on my tongue.
If I had cherished sin in my heart, the LORD woud not have listened and heard my voice in prayer.
Praise be to God, Who has not rejected my prayer or withheld His love from me!" Psalm 66:16-20

catching up

Hubby had left and right eye cataract surgeries.  Left eye doing wonderfully.  Right eye must be redone by specialist on Nov. 18th........prayers welcome !

Staying busy and trying to make improvements on new home.   Glory to God, I repainted our 14 x 14 foot shed all by my lonesome, and HE made it come out right and kept me safe midway up that extension ladder, PRAISE THE LORD.    Looks good.........khaki green with dark chocolate trim !

Next court date for me, Nov. 21st.......trusting always, whatever the outcome.

Not alot of quilting going on......the hubby always has something else to suggest that I do.......but I'm trying to finish a little pink scrap triangles baby quilt with big-stitch, for an expected grand-niece, Eva Klaire, due in early December.

Started a new pair of socks to have something to work on during hubby's doctor visits.........trying not to do all the easy stuff before I find myself stuck in a waiting room and starting a heel, for which I'd have to have refresher instructions !

Love and hugs and kisses to you all.........enjoy this beautiful changing of the seasons once again !


Oh, I forgot to mention........my beautiful China (black and white kitty) disappeared and has not been seen again, since Sept. 1st.  I miss her so, but fear that something in the woods got her.  Kelley's Siamese had kittens, and she's trying to hold the one kitten that came out looking like the mama, for ME, but I don't know when she can bring her from Oklahoma, and of course, they can't hold her indefinitely !  Just incase, though, I've already named her.  She's OPAL, and I found a little figurine to satisfy me of her until she's in my arms.   Let's hope !
