Sweet Promises.................Psalm 91:4

No videos just the Sweet Promises.  One of Linda Robertson's favorite verses.

"He will shield you with His wings,
He will shelter you with His feathers,
His faithful promises are your armor and protection."

Psalm 91v4

Give me a "STRIPE!"

Soooooooooooo many ways to do a stripe!
Finally decided on this, and yes I did redo it a couple of

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain."

Check out Gene Kelly.  He still makes me smile.

I'm Home alone!

Block B Alternative of The Sampler Society Yahoo Group

Big Mick and Shelley took Isla and Gracie to the Bastrop Zoo today to meet all the critters.  My personal favorite is the Guinea Pig house.  If you start throwing food out, they come streaming out of their house in long lines to eat.  It looks at least like a 100 of them.  I did go last time when it was cooler,  It's just way too hot today so I stayed home and sewed a block.  All the kids and Grandkids were here yesterday so it's really quiet.

The two oldest will be back soon.

Linda R's....Favorite Verse....Lamentations 3:22-24

Thanks so much for sharing Linda!

Lamentations 3:22-24 The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness. "The LORD is my portion," says my soul, "therefore I will hope in him."

Sorry I had a great video from Selah provided by youtube posted here, but it has been removed by the "user???"  .......just hum your favorite praise song right here............

Maybe I'll decorate my house with little Notebooks....grin.

I found this really quick and easy tutorial on Jenny's blog.  My 10 and 11 year old granddaughters are coming this weekend.  This might be a nice project to start them on in the world of sewing.  What are my odds of getting them to sew.............probably slim to none....LOL

Happy Sewing Day!!!

Block C from The Sampler Society Group

Dear Husband is off having his fun golfing today. When he brought me my coffee, he said just do whatever you want today and NOT to worry about the house......grin....LOL.  He knows I don't worry about it anyway, but it was sweet of him to say.

Psalm 118:24  This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

June You've Got Skills......from Night and Day

I rarely go to the movies, but I did yesterday.  Mick, Shelley, and I went to see Night and Day with  Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz.  It was such a fun movie!  I think I laughed and squealed through most of it.  Might have to do that again soon.

Home Decor - Crocheted Napkin Rings

Crocheted Napkin Rings
I used a varigated thread, but it looks like I used 4 different skiens...interestingggg.  (Click picture for a closeup)  Some day when time permits and DH takes me to town to shop for thread, I'm going to buy enough thread to do the complete set.  I just think this pattern is so cute.  The pattern is written by Carol Williams, and look it says it's her first written pattern!

Yes, I'm grounded again for shopping on the internet.....grin....bills just came in.
