I am so behind on my blog reading and responding to your comments. I'll get to it, just not in a very timely way, I am afraid.
Tomorrow is a big day. My son will be performing his senior recital. If you want, you can pray about the grand piano. Men need to lift it up on the platform tomorrow after church. I have horrible visions of someone getting hurt or something happening to the piano. I am so grateful for my friend, Mary Ann, who coordinated and organized the whole thing. I did very little, she did it all!
The quilt top was finished, but not in time to sandwich and take with me to the women's retreat, which ended up being a good thing. Russ liked the black and white polka dot fabric as the second block, so I went with it. I have enough colored blocks to make a second baby quilt. For that one, I am going to use white with black polka dots as the second square. Wouldn't they make cute quilts for twins?
I bought some perle cotton and some rayon embroidery thread to do some accent hand quilting in the white blocks. I may use more colors than what you see here. We'll see when I get to that part.
The women's retreat was a much needed respite for me and also a healing time after last weekend...The topic was Connecting the Dots of the Gospel to...My Life. There is no way I could share what we were taught. I am not skilled enough to communicate such deep and healing truths I learned. I wish I could...
On the way to the retreat center, the ladies I rode with made a few stops at some super cute shops/antique stores. These kind of shops are so hard for me. I (being the silly one in the group) walk in and announce, "I want it ALL!"
And I mean it.
I like stuff.
My husband is very thankful that I don't need to own all the things I like. =)
Like this pink beauty, for example. I really love it...But I don't need to own it. =)
When I got home, look at what was waiting for me in my front garden.
Spring is nearly here.
God is faithful. Spring always follows a long winter.....
Have a great Sunday....
