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...
Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight. - 1 Peter 3:3-4
And here’s a block for “My Jane.” This looks like it was hard to do (looked hard to me) but it was actually easy paper-piecing with the little squares appliquéd on the corners.
I’ve been playing catch-up the rest of them time. I finally made 4 blocks for the Block Lotto. This month the block is called Eclipse. These are 4 blocks placed next to each other to form the circle.
And then what else did I do? It seems like I’ve been busy. I had a wonderful lunch today with my sister. I also spent some time with her in her sewing room. Talk about someone who is accomplishing a lot there and blogging about it as well. She’s planning a giveaway soon so keep checking in. Of course, I’ll be posting about her giveaway when it actually happens… Waiting…waiting… Here’s a link to her blog:"My sister made me do it..."
