One-Flower Wednesday and My Jane H-4


Encouraging words of the day:

But it is just as the Scriptures say, "What God has planned for people who love him is more than eyes have seen or ears have heard. It has never even entered into our minds!" - 1 Corinthians 2:9 (CEV)
We’re back in El Paso now.  It’s always wonderful to be home, no matter how much fun you had while you were away.  It’s great to be back in my sewing room.  I did manage to sew a few of “My Jane” blocks on our 6 ½ hour road trip.  Here is H-4.  This was really easy paper-piecing and then appliqué diamond in center.
 
 H-4
I’m still working on Mama’s Christmas quilt.  I have finished quilting it and am now going to sew something on the edge of it so it can be used as a bedspread.  I’m off to the fabric store with my sister today to find some fabric.  She stopped by last evening for a while and we had a wonderful visit making up for the month we’ve spent apart.
It’s One Flower Wednesday .  The blue flower with the orangey-looking center looks awful in the photo but it is really pretty in “real life.”

And finally, here is a giveaway I’ve found:

Lily's Quilts is having a giveaway.  You could win a one year subscription to Fat Quarterly. – Ends November 16. –ooooo, that’s today. Good luck.

That is all.
