Time Out

On quilting, doing a little knitting

 Anna gave me this  peach she had left from a prayer shawl.
 This is my lap quilt half way in to quilting.

I like the way it looks on the back.

Thanksgiving and A Birthday

 For her birthday
Daughter Laura, very surprised

Tuesday, November 15, 2016


Has been busy with her crafts for Christmas.

 This is so cute ,she made the little round things and came up 
and said she thinks it needed something.
 The Bennie said you need some gold buttons to sew in the centers.
So I went and got my button jars to see what we could find.

Look you can see what we found , all kinds of little Christmas buttons.
Anna crocheted this star and we went to Hobby Lobby and 
found the tear drop and chain . Her granddaughter will get this.

If There Is a Will

 There is a way--- going from a sewing room to this.
I didn't think I was going to quilt any more--But---
 This small space is working well. Just no more full sizes quilts.
Pressing the seams on the bed.

But think I should get the other one put together first!!!
Getting a head of myself a little.

Jesus's Prayer For Us

But now I am coming to you, and these thing I speak
in the world, that they may have my joy fulfilled in
themselves (V. 13).

Jesus prayed for joy. One of the greatest benefits of
community is the encouragement that it brings. The
Christ-followers who surround me constantly point
me back to Jesus. When the pressures of life arise,
I am prone to forget my identity and lose my way.
When I do, my believing friends are there to remind
me who Jesus is and who He has declared me to be.
They remind me that  my joy is found in relationship
with my Creator, and my greatest hope can only be 
satisfied by Him.

"I know the plans I have for you,"
declares the Lord,
"plans to prosper you and not to harm you.
Plans to give you hope and a future."
Jer. 29:11

For there is one Spirit, just as you have been called
to one glorious hope for the future.
Eph. 4:4
