"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jer 29:11 (NIV)

In the early part of September I received a newsletter by email from Crown Financial Ministries. One of the articles that was in the newsletter this month had the following couple of sentences.

"But now I’d like to ask, “What dream has God put in your heart?” If you know it, let me encourage you to go for it with all of your might. Follow the leading God has given you, and don’t let anything stop you from fulfilling His special purpose for your life!"

I've been thinking about this since getting the newsletter, and about what dream He has given to me. Still don't have an answer to that at this point........... What about those of you that are reading my blog - what dream do you have and what are you doing to fulfill that dream?

Gratitudes -
1. For a God that never leaves us alone no matter how dark our days can seem.
2. For a church family (near and far) that cares for me.

Finding my quilting mojo

Am finally finding my quilting mojo again........and have managed to finish a quilt that is to be a gift for the oldest son of good friends. The stars are made from 4 brushed cotton fat-quarters that were part of a set given to me by a friend. The quilt for his brother is being quilted now and also has fabrics from the same set of FQ's.

Next up are the two Pillow shams that I need to make to match the DWR quilt. Along with blocks that I need to make for a private swap I'm doing with a couple of good friends............
1. For the blessing of being able to quilt and sew.
2. For God's provision in all things.

DWR quilt top is finished!

Yippee-skippee..............the quilt top is finished as of this morning. Am sooooooooo glad to have this much done. It's going into the mail this morning and will be off to the gal doing the quilting for me. Now onto the two baby quilts I've been commissioned to make.


1. The short sale of my house was completed on time and is now totally gone for me. Hallelujah!
2. The beautiful, cool fall weather that N. Tx has had so far this week. Am loving it!
