Billy Graham - - 2/21/2018

Someday you will read or hear that Billy Graham is dead. Don't you believe a word of it. I shall be more alive than I am now. I will just have changed my address. I will have gone into the presence of God.” -Rev. Billy Graham

My Latest Creation - - - !!

It's truly a JOY to be part of a Sunday School Class of Ladies - - (all in our 60's) that ENJOY Sewing - Quilting - Embroidering !  A few years ago we hosted a Quilt Festival - - it's time we do it again !

But - - meanwhile - - look what I've Completed - - This New Creation began New Year's Weekend - - and since that time - - due to experiencing a 2nd Snow-Fall this Winter Season - - getting down to a frigid Wind Chill Factor of 8 Degrees - - with all Interstate and other Roads completely CLOSED, I managed to be off  (Home from Work) almost an entire week - -  Considering the weekends we had to stay indoors due to bad weather - - I manage to complete this Quilt.  Although the weather has improved, and I'm back on my regular schedule, I sewed the last stitch last night as I watched T.V.  - This Quilt really is pretty as I lay it across my Bed - - - Now, off to the Quiltors it will go !

I realize I'm still considered a Beginner - - but - - it will look pretty laying across someone's Bed.

The JOY of "Coordinating" !!!

Women on Mission
I just had to share the JOY I've experienced - - by serving as "Coordinator" of "Women on Mission" for my Church.

The "Women on Mission" of my Church is currently seeking a Leader - - meanwhile - -  I was asked to Serve as "Coordinator" for the Month of January - - so I said, "why not" - - it's only for a Month.  - - However - - are U aware, January has 5 Sundays (not the normal 4 Sundays) ! 

I've taken the opportunity to Promote to our Group of Ladies the upcoming Events of the Eastern LA Baptists Women's Association - - which are plentiful.  Next Sunday, which is my Last Sunday as "Coordinator" I plan to Promote the upcoming V.B.S. within our Church - - in which we Ladies-on-Mission will Volunteer to Serve.  I plan to take my Vacation Week & Serve during V.B.S. - with my Sunday School Ladies !

I have thoroughly enjoyed serving as "Coordinator" - - God makes it so easy - if we just say 'Yes'.

Quilting - - during the Frigid Temps ! !

Look what I'm Quilting - - during the Frigid Temps - - It's truly a Simple Pattern - - but so E-Z to Quilt.  It's really pretty !   - - - - I'm almost finished with it !

The 'strip' between each row - - is that of my bed sheet - - it is not the actual 'strip' which will be a colored strip.

In case U are wondering - - the image is of the "Eiffel Tower" - - with the Words France & Paris stamped within - - a little different - - but will look nice in my Quilt Display Cabinet !!
