Hilachas is the Spanish word for those little loose threads that fall all over the floor and sewing area as you finish sewing and snip the tail end of the thread off the sewn area. So does this blog entail the odds and ends of topics of interest, leaving more loose threads to ponder...
More peaceful days in the beautiful Texas Hill Country.
Encouraging words of the day:
In him lie hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. ~ Colossians 2:3, NLT
This month marks the 400th anniversary of the translation of the Bible commissioned by King James of England. The King James Version, as it has been called, may be the best known English translation, but it wasn't the first one. About a hundred years earlier, in 1525, William Tyndale undertook an English translation (from which most of the KJV is derived), and ultimately paid for it by getting burnt at the stake (his interpretation of the book was at odds with the King's). Mixing of state and religion never did any good. Today, there are available many more translations. As for myself, I prefer the New Living Translation because it is easier for me to understand.
Every week Karen at Journey of a Quilter kindly hosts “One-Flower Wednesday” and it’s that time again. Here are my hexie flowers.
You can tell that I’m still in the Texas Hill Country enjoying the beautiful weather since I haven’t been blogging much. I have been sewing some. I have started my little stash of fabric here so I don’t have to lug fabric back and forth.
