I couldn't wait to get back to work to post....Blog!

This is the newest,,, but fabric I bought last year.... my newest baby blanket for a list of abot 7 give-away-baby quilts !!

Now for a bit of baking.... Thanksgiving 2012

back to the machine.... I must be feeling the end of the yars pressure and happy blues...
really motivated to pull out and finish some projects.   I'm pretty organized in my sewing room and closets... and bookshelves.... and bins...

Hand-quilting the blocks.... joining a sixteen block unit together

BELOW..... here is it sewn together.   Only thing about this CATHEDRAL WINDOW  is that everytime I finish a four-or 8-patch.... another machine stitched seam calls for another row of windows!!!!   LUV IT!!!

 Old favorite..... strip piecing
This says it for the Holiday Season

to the small still inner voice in my heart.   Simplicity, quietness, knowing God... knowing that He knows my every thought and need.     I'm at my work desk...
...drinking a mid morning cup of creamed-coffee.   I woke up with a low of 58 mg/dl on the Accucheck monitor... and I cooked sausage, egg, cinnamon toast and coffee at home today!
I  AM  WANTING . . .
I  NEED  . . .
