Encouraging words of the day:
So I recommend having fun, because there is nothing better for people in this world than to eat, drink, and enjoy life. That way they will experience some happiness along with all the hard work God gives them under the sun. ~ Ecclesiastes 8:15, NLT
Solomon recalls the remedy for life's unanswered questions. He recommends joy and contentment as encouragement for us along life's pilgrimage. We must accept each day with its daily measure of work, food, and pleasure. Let us learn to enjoy what God has given us to refresh and strengthen us to continue his work.
Well, we took another road trip yesterday - back to the ranch for a couple of weeks. I worked on my hexie flowers for “One Flower Wednesday” where Karen has organized 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. Meanwhile, here are mine.
Yes, I know they look pretty weird for flowers but I really do have a plan. The top is going to be the sky in the picture I’m planning for my hexies and the darker part will be the ground. Later, I’ll figure out what goes in the middle, I'll post those. I do know that part of it will be a “little house” that looks like our little ranch house in Rocksprings, Texas. My sister at “My Sister Made Me Do It…" is sewing it up for me. And, NO, I didn’t make her do it. I probably just hinted a little.
I took the plunge and started on some of the triangle blocks for “My Jane” using the tutorial at "Aunt Reen's Quilts." It was actually pretty easy. I just love this site. Aunt Reen says we can finish up the DJ in 13 months and since I already have several made before beginning with Aunt Reen, I just might be able to do it. Here are two triangle blocks: TR-2 and TR-5.
That is all.
