Today I have for you another free mini quilt pattern in our
"Shining Like the Dawn"
block of the month quilt:
Patience seems to be in short supply in our 'instant' world of today! It is said that “delays ﬁnd us out” and that certainly is true in my experience. I love how up-to-date the Bible is. These words were written centuries ago, and yet they are as relevant today as they were then.
Be patient and wait for the LORD to act.
I hope you enjoy stitching another uplifting quote. You can download the free pattern here.
Our daughter and her four children were with us for the whole week, so there were lots of cuddles and very little stitching done! Our daughter-in-law and her two boys also came one day. It is so delightful to see their different personalities and their amazing talent. All sorts of creative things were going on - stitching, drawing, loom band jewellery, recycled crafting, story writing, inventing party games ... It does a grandmother proud to see all that creativity!
I sent daughter-in-law home with a box of goodies for the school Mother's Day stall - potholders, needlecase, bag, drawer sachet:
plus lovely crochet bookmarks. There's now a couple of weeks to get organised for our Church market stall just before our Australian Mothers' Day.
I was given a beautiful bunch of flowers early in the week. I hadn't really looked beyond the roses and chrysanthemums, so I had a lovely surprise when this beautiful lily opened a couple of days later. Now as the roses fade, there are two of these giving me delight:
After I rearranged the house back to suit just the two of us, I thought I had better also get my paperwork in order. Commissions seem to have been appearing in all sorts of corners lately and I was beginning to feel I didn't have a handle on it at all. So now I have a neat list with ten commissions in date order so I know what I have to tackle next. Four are due in the next 5 or 6 weeks, so it will be head down and tail up now the family has gone home.
I hope you enjoy the blessings of the Easter Season.
