Bass Lake in California and My Jane G1 and G5

Encouraging words of the day:

Then Jesus told them, "I tell you the truth, if you have faith and don't doubt, you can do things like this and much more. You can even say to this mountain, 'May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,' and it will happen."
Matthew 21:21, NLT

Many have wondered about Jesus' statement that if we have faith and don't doubt, we can move mountains. Jesus, of course, was not suggesting that his followers use prayer as "magic" and perform capricious "mountain-moving" acts. Instead, he was making a strong point about the disciples' (and our) lack of faith.

What kinds of mountains do you face? Have you talked to God about them? How strong is your faith?

On Sunday we went to beautiful Bass Lake, north of Fresno.    I hear What beautiful scenery!  There was an Arts and Crafts Fair which we enjoyed.  Later we found a place selling a catfish dinner and enjoyed that as well.  Just another wonderful day spent with our grandson. 

The  "Penny Haren Applique" block for this week is called “Snowflake.”  I don’t think this one is very pretty but, oh well…

My evening sewing on “Dear Jane” blocks has produced the following: 
It looks like I need to remember to cut the back out of the middle applique on this block.  Maybe.  It does add a little character to see that light X that shows.
A giveaway I've run into:
"1 Choice 4 Quilting"  is having a giveaway of a  Fat Quarter Bundle, 2 yards of matching Bella Solids, and your choice of a Moda tote bag to 4 lucky winners. – ends June 27th.

That is all.

I love the Bass Lake area. Hopefully it wasn't too hot up there for your visit.

Your blocks are wonderful!
