Encouraging words of the day:
Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him. ~ Colossians 3:10, NLT
What does it mean to "put on your new nature"? It means that your conduct should match your faith. To be a Christian means more than just making good resolutions and having good intentions; it means taking the right actions. This is a straightforward step that is as simple as putting on your clothes.
I’ve been working diligently on “My Jane.” I found a cool blog called "Aunt Reen's Quilts." This wonderful lady has figured out the measurement for cutting the fabric for paper-piecing. Talk about a time saver. Yes, I could figure it out myself but I usually just cut out a strip that looks big enough and jiggle it around, sew it on wrong, un-sew, try again, etc. so knowing what size to cut the pieces beforehand is great! Thanks so much, Doreen, for doing all that work. I KNOW what a big job that is. I made 3 blocks in the time it usually takes me to make one. Anyway, here are a couple of blocks I completed before running into "Aunt Reen's Quilts." I made these on the road trip back to El Paso.
I won this beautiful giveaway prize from Lynn at "Heartstrings and Heirlooms." The fat quarters are gorgeous in beautiful turquoise blues, my favorite color. Another has flowers, butterflies, and dragon flies, perfect for my hexie flowers. Also included was a cute crocheted pot holder. Thanks so much, Lynn.
That is all.
