F A I T H . . . . . .

I needed a reminder a few months ago--- so I got this for myself.  I'm not a big jewelry wearer. I think I have four pairs of earrings total.  Every piece of jewelry I own means something.  It's
F-A-I-T-H... as in...'Never lose it...'... I guess at the time I was thinking, " As long as it was around my neck-- I wouldn't..."  Don still is not working, but I have optimism and hope...enough for both of us......

This has hung in my sewing room just like this for a while.  It was a friendship gift from Amy.  She even included scraps so I could make it bigger.  Chelsey has decided that hopefully she will have her own place next semester and wants a brown couch for a pink and brown living room.  This was the first thing I thought of.  I guess there is always a reason for a quilt.  So I took my scraps and added a couple of fat quarters and created
16 more blocks.

It's a nice size now.  I found some fabric on clearance for backing--- maybe tomorrow I'll post it.  I'm thinking a brown patchwork border and it will be ready for quilting.  It looks like Chelsey.

I had a great weekend--- It just wasn't long enough.

Good necklace, a good reminder that He has been with us, is with us and will continue to be with us through all that life brings to us.
That little pink and brown star quilt would indeed be a lovely and loving addition to a first apartment. The cupboard that the quilt is draped over caught my eye with surprise. From what I can see, it looks almost like a twin to my stash cupboard. I would love to see it without the quilt. I bought mine from a dingey old used furniture place on the east coast. It had seen better days, but I like it. Much to DH's chagrin, I insisted on moving it 'cross country with us to the west coast. :-)

What a pretty block! And rather than having your name, rank and serial number on a chain around your neck, how much better to have a reminder of what's really important! God is faithful.

The necklace is beautiful. We're struggling too - both of us freelance and there is not much work.

But we must have faith - everything is in divine order!
