The year is flying by and it's time to give you the second last block in the
free Block of the Month Wall Quilt
You Are Blessed
This is the verse for Pattern 7:
You’re blessed when you get your inside world — your mind and heart — put right. Then you can see God in the outside world.
My husband and I live in a beautiful area of God’s creation - rainforest, beach, ocean, lots of places to walk in the bush, wonderful flora and fauna. I find it hard to understand people who can’t see how amazing God is when they look at the intricacies and beauty of nature.
Light dawned as to why this happens, when I read our verse for this month’s block. It’s only when our inside world is put right that we can see God in the outside world. How amazing that Jesus came to make it possible to get our mind and heart put right. We can have a new page in our life every day — no need to always be trying “to turn over a new leaf”.
I do hope and pray that you are blessed as you stitch this block. You can download the free pattern
I've had one of those 'bits and pieces' weeks. We have had some very restless nights with my husband having a bad cough and his skin condition playing up, so with being very tired, I have been feeling rather lazy and not too interested in sitting at the sewing machine. There's been a couple of medical appointments, the dishwasher to be given its regular deep clean, a Community Morning Tea to attend, and yet another attempt at getting our modem with the right settings so that the phone doesn't drop out. Then yesterday morning when I turned on my computer I couldn't believe my eyes, as everything had been reset as if it was new and never been used - no emails, no favourites, no programme settings - all disappeared! After the initial panic, I guessed it was probably an automatic upgrade to the operating system that had gone wrong, so I did a system restore and thankfully everything came back to the status quo.
About the only crafty thing that I did accomplish in the week was to upload the Raspberry Sherbet Table Runner to my Craftsy Store.
The runner is quite simple to make, but very effective with the colours offset by the black contrast. The pattern is available here.
My latest Patchwork & Stitching magazine arrived yesterday and I was happy to see my name on the front cover! Yes, there's an article about me in it! I'll show you more next time.
