One-Flower Wednesday and My Jane I-7

Encouraging words of the day –
When Jesus came to earth, He brought with Him everything you need to be empowered to live a life of victory. He came as a little baby, but He represented all authority in heaven and earth. When you choose to serve Him, you have access to all of His resources. You have access to His peace, power, authority, provision, joy and strength. He brought all of this to us when He came to earth. Unto us a child is born...unto us victory is given. Unto us, peace is given. Unto us, provision is given. Unto us hope and healing are given. Unto us eternal life is given.

Whatever you need today, remember, when Jesus came into the world, He made a way for every one of your needs to be met spiritually, emotionally and physically. Surrender your life to Him and receive all the spiritual blessings He has in store for you.

Busy.  Like no one else is, huh?  We’re in the Texas Hill Country right now, wrapping gifts like crazy, packing like crazy, etc, in preparation for our road trip to Keller, Texas tomorrow to the home of our youngest son.  Our oldest son and our daughter and their families will also be traveling to Keller for Christmas.  It’s a 6-hour trip so I’ll be doing more hand-sewing.  Here are my  One Flower Wednesday hexie flowers. 
I don't know why they came out side-ways.  The little sun in the top one actually looks cuter when it's right-side-up.

I was also able to complete some “My Jane” blocks while driving to the Hill Country . . . Here is I-7.  It was easy paper-piecing but a KILLER appliqueing those little bitty triangles on the sides.  See how crooked the top one came out (and is not going to be re-done)?

Giveaways I've run into, well, I’ve found one:
Malt Designs is having a giveaway.  You could win a fat quarter bundle of Northcote Range Petite, by Cabbages & Roses.  - Ends Saturday, December 31.

That is all.

Your flowers are so cute! Your I-7 block is wonderful. Think of the top triangle as being 'unique' not crooked :) Safe travels tomorrow!!

The top hexi is my favorite of these! And not just because of the fussy cut sun.....the whimsical choice of all the reds is really nice, I think. I will miss you and your family in Ruidoso this weekend. Give my love to all!
