Genny From the Jersey shore has sent another! We love working with her.
This one is a quilt for the boy scouts..they are auctioning it off as a fundraiser..and how appropriate.
She did a beautiful job..she asked for us to put arrows crossing at teh top..then Sally looked up a few tribal type symbols and quilted those in the borders..for rain, lighting, sun..that type of things…then the rest is embellishing the fabric and panel. Sally does such a beautiful work…and she rises to every challenge! Honestly, I am so blessed to work with people all over the world..but also to have such a fantastic team of people to work with me.
Today was a great day I finished lots….I got a HUGE quilt done..will post tomorrow. Went shopping with some of the gals at church for the Christmas Play. The Play is this Sunday. YIKES!
Tomorrow is the second to last rehearsal.
Tomorrow is also the ladies day lunch at church….
Tonight was a bible study night…..It was good. I laughed, I cried and I was moved..along with informed. It doesn’t happen like that all the time…but PRAISE GOD that it did.
I read anotehr blog today. I have been following this gal’s blog for many years. I was heavy into scrapbooking for many years and this gal made product and is also a photographer.
I love her family and she discusses a lot of her struggles. Her family I think is newly saved…maybe not newly saved..but I would say newly fell in LOVE with Jesus…and she is speaking more about her faith walk…struggles and LOVE of Jesus.
She made a comment about how she felt she was losing blog readers because she is talking about that more.
She actually got a HUGE amount of comments on that post..I didn’t stop to read them but I am sure I know what they say.
I am so glad she isn’t going to stop talking about God. It is amazing to me that in this country we have to be afraid of that.
God will protect her.I truly believe that.
I will say good night with this verse
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his spirit in your inner being.
Well a recap of yesterday….quilting…Finished the Tonga quilt….and made a nice dinner for my family….tonight is spaghetti night….easy but nice.
Then I topped it off with bible study. I love bible study. Those ladies are really beautiful.
I am not sure what’s in store for today except quilting..I need to get some stuff finished..I looked at my shop load…BOOHOO! I have such huge quilts I am working as much as I possibly can…but my life just keeps getting busier as well.
The play, Christmas…you know everything you all are living through as well.
Well I guess i better get going…I have a long arm to get running!
Here are some pictures to look at…..this quilt was made for Palladin books…it will hang in their office…Very Cool!
I wanted to leave you with this verse as well…..it seems fitting with the season
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:
I think this is such a labor of LOVE. This is a wedding gift for her son..she wanted some feathers and Charisma Curls..but she also didn’t want the quilt to be to “girly”. I put the feathers in the corner log cabin type blocks that was used as side setting triangles….I used the CC’s in the final border ..the rest of the quilting was really just block work…which is always my favorite type of quilting..it makes each block new and interesting to me as I am quilting. PLus I love all the different textures after the quilt is finished…it feel like such a sense of accomplishment.
SO Natalie…Thank you for trusting me with your work …and I hope you like the way I quilted it.
