Not Much Progress to Report

I managed to get one more row sewed together on my lunch hour yesterday.  I did one more while cooking dinner last night.  That’s as far as I got on any quilting projects.  I did peruse some books & magazines, looking for a good project for my batiks.  Right now, I’m leaning toward a jewel box quilt.  Today, on my lunch hour, I sewed the remaining 2 rows, and got all the backing fabric for my Mom’s quilt pressed.  I don’t know if I will get to do anymore later or not, depends on how I feel after work, fixin’ dinner, cleanin’ up dinner, and doing a little cleaning in my bedroom/bathroom. 

Another online friend asked in a recent blog about what things make you happy on a daily basis.  That query, thank you Ronda, along with reading a couple of blogs by cancer patients, reading about a mother losing a son in another friend’s blog, and a couple of friends close to me going through some difficult situations recently,  have really made me count my blessings the last couple of days.  Just to start, this is not my official blog yet of things that make me happy, that will come when I have more time to put into it, I have to say how happy my family makes me.  Also, knowing that He who is in me, is greater than he who is in the world.  During your visit with me today, notice the new box in the sidebar, Soul Food.  I’m not sure how often it will change, but I wanted a space to share verses, etc., that really touch me, or speak to me,  from time to time.  I absolutely love this first verse.  When I came across it during a personal devotional time, it was an AHA! moment for me.   If you have one you would like to share with me, always feel free to add it to the comments of the current post, whether it’s relevant to the post or not.  I’d love to read them.  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I am really itching to play with those batiks, and I so do NOT need to start yet another project at the present time! No, no, no! I think I could also work in my batik nickels from the nickel swap. Somebody stop me!


  2. Yup… that’s too many projects… you just send those batiks to me 😀 Start what you want.. winter will be here before you know it and you’ll be finishing everything.
