I have not been this motivated or productive in a long time. Some months I really struggle. July is proving the exception of that rule :)
I worked this quilt top, Vintage Farm Girl, over the weekend as a leader/ender with the baby quilt I finished. I put the red borders on it and I am over the moon. I really did not expect to get this one done this early in the month !!! It's put away now until I can sandwich it. I even got the backing pieced !!
Another goal :) I have so much fun making these little doll gowns and quilts.
On the stitching front, I've received the Girls' Getaway block. It wasn't the one I was expecting, but here it is. All drawn off, tinted and ready to stitch.
On the "Happy Mail" front, I received an unexpected box in the mail. I had begun a crazy quilt stitch along with my friend Susan. She's doing a really good job keeping up, me not so much. But that hasn't kept us from making plans to do more.
We are planning on doing CQ in wool. I don't have a lot and wool is expensive so I had planned on just picking it up whenever I came across it. There is a local shop that carries it and I planned to stop whenever I went to visit my sister - the shop is right down the street from her home :) Lucky me !!
Then this box arrived . . .
How blessed am I ??
This is from a sweet lady -Deanna. I've had contact with her in the past and we chat off and on, but not frequently. She's not using it any more and volunteered to share . . . with me !!!!
She wrote the sweetest note. Shared some very sweet testimony that touched my heart.
It centered around "Hope".
Isn't this just the sweetest?
Again, I am feeling so very blessed. God has a special place in Heaven, just for quilters. They are the sweetest, most generous people I know.
Thanks for stopping by,
Wishing you a day filled with the things that make and keep you happy.
Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.
