Two more "Dear Jane" blocks

 Encouraging words of the day:
And it is a good thing to receive wealth from God and the good health to enjoy it. To enjoy your work and accept your lot in life--this is indeed a gift from God. God keeps such people so busy enjoying life that they take no time to brood over the past.  - Ecclesiastes 5:19-20, NLT
God wants us to view what we have (whether it is much or little) with the right perspective--our possessions are a gift from God. Although they are not the source of joy, they are a reason to rejoice because every good thing comes from God.  Let us focus more on the Giver than the gift. We can be content with what we have when we realize that with God we have everything we need.

This week the Penny Haren Applique group is making “Shirley’s Star” and here is mine:

 Two more “Dear Jane” blocks completed over the weekend, grand total = 4!  There are a few mistakes but I’m leaving them so I can see how I improve with time.  Yeah, right… The blocks look crooked but really, they're not.  I think it's the photographer that's the problem.  Really.


Giveaways I've run into:

"Happy Quilting" is giving away  7 fat quarters. – ends May 20th.
"Kool Beenz" is giving away a  Moda Trick or Treat Layer Cake – ends May 20th.

That is all.
