But the LORD's plans stand firm forever; his intentions can never be shaken. ~ Psalm 33:11, NLT
"The plans of the LORD stand firm forever." Are you frustrated by inconsistencies you see in others, or even in yourself? God is completely trustworthy--his intentions never change. There is a promise that good and perfect gifts come to us from the Creator who never changes.
I've planned a giveaway which I'll tell you about later in this post but here's a preview:
I've received several exciting packages in the mail. I received two sets of hexie flowers from partners in the "Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap." Jan from California was my partner for February and sent me these two lovely flowers. They'll be perfect as the sky in the GFG I'll complete some day.
And then, somehow, my October flowers from Beverly in Oklahoma just now arrived. More sky.
Thanks, ladies, for the beautiful flowers.
I also received this fabulous wall hanging with my blog name, Hilachas, on it. Colby made it for the "Name Game: swap. It’s even more beautiful in "real life.."
I like it so much and all the symbolism in it. There are real “hiilachas” sewn in the middle of the Dresden plates, little pieces of thread that Colby sewed down. The hand quilting is beautiful. I have found the perfect place to display it in my sewing room. Thanks again and again.
And now, here is the information about my “Birthday – Ready For Spring Giveaway.” I just celebrated my birthday and am definitely ready for spring. My yard is ready for spring as well as our peach tree already has beautiful pink blossoms and there are daffodils and narcissis flowers blooming. So I’ve chosen 5 fat-quarters that remind me of spring to give one of my followers.
Here are beautiful, colorful flowers . . .
Easter eggs that just yell “spring . . .”
Cute FQ of teapots, cups, mugs, etc. and perfect for mug rugs . . .
Birthday cakes and cup cakes . . .
And of course, bugs, bugs, bugs . . .

“Birthday – Ready For Spring Giveaway
Encouraging words of the day.
To add to this, I’ve made this little kit to take with you when you’re away from home.
It’s a wonderful little take-along to hold your hand-sewing, needles, threads, all those little things you need while sitting in a doctor’s waiting room or any of those other places we find ourselves twiddling our thumbs and wishing we had remembered to bring our sewing. I’ve also managed to add a page called “Tutorials” to my blog (see tabs at top of blog) and have included the tutorial for this handy little kit.
So, you’re wondering, what do you have to do for a chance to win this giveaway? Ends March 2nd and you have two chances:
