Road to Bali {quilt}

Standard

I finally started machine quilting (hand quilting would take me forever)

Here’s some before pictures and my thoughts:

What thread shall I use??

Romans12

Romans 12:1-2

The Abundant Life Is a Service Life

I urge you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

We serve through sacrifice. A true sacrifice puts everything we have at the disposal of Christ. A true sacrifice shows real love for others.

Have a great Sunday, my day of worship was awesome!

Behold, a Saturday at home sweet home

Standard

What does this day hold? Our son is off to the near by college, about 40 minutes drive, to try for a scholarship with his clarinet. I do not think he will know the results today.

Our long 3 hour drive to basketball games were cancelled yesterday, due to the large amount of snow (heard that Hays had 17″) now I have a Saturday to clean and do some much desired sewing! I plan to come back and fill you in on what happened to my day!

update #1 eating chili and cornbread and looking at blogs; then checking out a tutorial on machine quilting….sun is out but it’s only 19* 🙂

update #2 {again} I did this and can’t find it {sad face for sure} Caleb did well with his clarinet!!

had a great time chatting,sewing and laughing with friends this afternoon. finished c’s quilt top, cut some more 2.5″ squares.

Had a nice evening with hubby and popcorn, talking basketball tournament (while I was sewing) Here’s a pic of the quilt we designed:

C told me the colors and the block shapes. Fred and I did the math and figured the yardage, Oh, now to buy backing!

Almost a Year

Standard

I have been using Duri, Rejuvacote for almost if not a year by now. I was a true skeptic at first. A really good trustworthy friend suggested it to me after a post that I had made on Facebook about my nails not growing. Well as a girl and young lady and well in to my adult life now, I never had nails that would grow! I hated it, I would try different ideas to get them to grow…. {I admit as a child I did bite the nails}…also my nails would break, except my thumb nails, they were strong. So here I am to show you that …. I now have nails, growing so strong and long that I am filing them down! I am finding it hard to believe! FYI, I bought Rejuvacote on Amazon.com I searched until I found a great price and free shipping. I just started on my second bottle this week. As always because I like pictures here are a couple, I am a visual person, here’s what the bottle looks like and my nails today:

{love this! I used it for 7 days, kept adding as it does come off, then I added polish after the 7 days were up}

In Memory

My Grandpa, today was his birthday adn I do miss him, his laughter, his hugs, his smiles.

My Mother-in-Law, Ione, she was full of life, her glass was always 1/2 full and music was he gift!

My Mother-in-Laws sister, she shared a birthday! she was born on Ione’s 5th birthday, Joan. She just resently passed away. She was so much like Ione in looks, she was a lot different, I didn’t know much about her but she was full of life also!

Happy Birthday to some very special people that were in my life and I look forward to seeing you again when I see you in Heaven! love and miss you!
