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...
Those who listen to instruction will prosper; those who trust the Lord will be joyful.
~ Proverbs 16:20, NLT
Wow. I haven’t blogged in a week . Yes, I’ve been busy. We took another road trip to visit our son in north Texas and had a terrific weekend. Then the drive back to the ranch on Monday and then another road trip tomorrow on our way back to west Texas. I, of course, had my hand-sewing available. I’ve been crocheting a baby afghan for my godson and wife who are waiting for a February arrival. Yesterday I spent a large part of the day doing prep work for “My Jane” blocks that I can work on when we are in California at the end of the month.
And, ta da… today is One Flower Wednesday and here are my flowers. I sewed them up with the odd petals I have and I’m happy with the way they turned out. Looks like my first GFG is going to be scrappy for sure.
Here’s the “My Jane” blocks which I completed lately. It was easy to sew although the colors may be too light. But as has become my motto – “Go with it.”
