“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. “.

So, I'll miss you 'til we 'chat' again, hopefully with me checking in sometimes at the library.
But I'll leave you with the last of my September pics !
Love to all !
Here's one last bouquet from Summer/Fall of 2014

I've named it
I quilted each of the brown diamonds into 4 sections, and quilted a smaller diamond in the center of each colorful diamond.
Each border received a different quilting design; the top and right borders were quilted by following the design elements in the prints; the left border used a stencil of flower and vine, and the bottom border received vertical lines one inch apart.
The back is made up of various pieces of red/pink/white printed fabrics that I had stashed away.
Also, the LORD has seen fit to let me win another wonderful prize.....
...this time from a drawing at our local health fair. I was contacted this afternoon to let me know that I had won the 1100 watt Nutri Ninja Professional pitcher/singleserve blender !

|Believe it or not, the one on the right is older than the rest of us and we were celebrating his 62nd birthday, which is today. Looking good, John !|
I've been busy with some hand-quilting, but I've reached the borders, and I don't know what I'm going to put in three of them (followed the fabric's printed pattern for the fourth), so it has me stopped in my tracks for now.
Hope all is well with friends out in blogland !
