Encouraging words of the day:
People may be right in their own eyes, but the LORD examines their heart. ~ Proverbs 21:2, NLT
People can find an excuse for doing almost anything, but God looks behind the excuses to the motives of the heart. We often have to make choices in areas where the right action is difficult to discern. We can help ourselves make such decisions by trying to identify our motives first and then asking, "Would God be pleased with my real reasons for doing this?" God is not pleased when we do good deeds only to receive something in return.
Once again, it’s “One Flower Wednesday” when Karen (over at Journey of a Quilter) provides a linky for all of to share our hexagon flowers. If you would like to see more flowers out there in Blogland, just click HERE. The flowers I’m posting this week are flowers I made for my swap partner in the "Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap." Talk about “killing two birds with one stone.…”
Here are two more of “My Jane” blocks completed. J-5 was ok. It was actually tedious sewing those little appliqué shapes in the corners just because they are so small.
M-6 was hard because I sewed it all by hand on our road trip. It’s difficult for me to sew straight for some reason so I ended up with “ripply-looking” strips on the sides. I guess I need more practice but I will stick to my sewing machine unless I’m traveling. The only thing, I think I’ve completed most of the appliqué blocks already and all I have left are the paper-pieced to sew on the machine. Maybe some of the triangles on the sides are appliqué. I’ll need to check. Here’s M-6.
"Lisnaweary quilts" is giving away 4 fat quarters and a copy of the latest issue of Sewing World Magazine. - ends April 30th.
That is all.
