Happy Thursday, April 24, 2014 to everyone.  Even though it is a bit cloudy here in beautiful Monticello today the quilt I took off of my machine has brought a ray of sunshine to me.
I love it when I plan the quilting for a quilt in my head and the quilting looks even better than I had planned.  Here is the quilt (below) that brought sunshine to me today.  Thank you Elaine for allowing me to quilt your quilt.  Blessings to all.

Here are just a few of the quilts I've been working on this week. The first quilt  was done by Karen and each of her appliqué pieces were done by hand with the buttonhole stitch.  I can only dream that I would one day be half as accomplished as Karen.

The rest of these quilts were pieced by Mary Jo.  I've had a great week working on Mary Jo's beautiful quilts.

Blessings to all this joyous Easter season.  I am always amazed at how God works in my life.  My bible study with my dear friend Kristie has taken us on the journey of the Book of James.  The study is written by Beth Moore and I highly recommend any study that Beth Moore has written.  As I was working on my study on Tuesday I came to a section that referenced Jesus dying on the cross for our sins and his resurrection.  I had no idea on this Holy Week of Easter that my bible study would lead to speaking about the death and resurrection of Jesus.  My heart was touched that God brought me to this reference. I did not take this as a coincidence.  I knew God had his hand in my journey.

Happy Tuesday April 8th, 2014.  I keep telling myself it is spring as I'm sitting here with a heavy sweatshirt on.  I am so ready for at least 70 degree weather.  Okay I'll stop whining.  At least the sun has been shining all day.  Maybe I just need to take a walk outside and breath in some  fresh air.  I've been inside all day working on a beautiful quilt.

Thought I'd pass this little tidbit on my bank had posted.  Here it is, did you know when you lick a stamp you are actually consuming 1/10th of a calorie?  First of all I'm saving calories since the stamps I purchase are all self-sticking and secondly who figures these things out?

I hope you enjoy a few pictures of some quilts I've been working on by Joann (gray and yellow) and Carol  (peach and tan).  Great quilts aren't they!

Blessings to all.
