Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Gently Used


Have you ever thought about that term - gently used? I can think of several things it might mean....but in this case it means I've read these books or made these patterns or decided not use these panels! So I'm passing them on to anyone who wants to gently use them some more. I made the Frankenstein wall hanging and it's cute. I made the sewing purse out of pink wool - love it! The journal is a wonderful idea, but I'm not that organized about my quilting journey! The Prayer of Jabez and The Secrets of the Vine I bought multiple copies of when I found them on sale one day. The Quilt of Life is a book of devotions and What I Learned From God When Quilting are interesting observations on life. The panels are things I got on sale after Christmas one time or another and haven't used or had multiples of. If you're interested in any of these just leave me a comment and let me one which one(s). I'll wait until Monday and then if there is more than one person wanting an item I'll draw names. I'll let you know if you've "won" the item and you can send me your address so I can mail it. I'm trying to gradually clean out my sewing room so hopefully soon I'll have a few more items! Oh and the bag I machine embroidered and it's jus for fun!

I used to see blogs that you recommend on the right hand side of your page, I don't see them anymore :( Missing reading them after reading this blog.

What a generous person you are! I would love to have the #177 Things for Thimbles. I love the pattern! I love you blog, as you know!

Marie said...

Marlene, love the things for thimbles pattern and the Quilt of Life book. Anyone would be very lucky indeed to have any one of these things passed on to them from you. What a generous soul you are. xxoo

Marge said...

Marlene, how sweet of you! I love the Christmas house panel or wall hanging! But any of the treasures would be great. Thanks for being so generous!

I'd be interested in the Quilt Journal.

What a generous thing to do !

Hey Marlene,

I received the envelope with the embroidery patterns today - thank you so much. I can't wait to stitch the little mouse for my new granddaughter.

I love the santa and deer panel, and the two other little panels (one has santa and says Believe). If nobody else selects any of those three, I'd be happy with one of 'em :)

Thanks again for the patterns!!!

I am in Australia so this is not feasible really but I love the thimble thing too. It is just so sweet.

Hiya Marlene, Isn't it fun when we can pass along treasures to other quilters. I'm hoping to do the same as soon as time allows. I would love to read the book, "What I learned from God while quilting" and then pass it on to another quilter. Thanks so much for sharing.

You know that I want anything hand-made by you-or machine embroidered. I like the shopping bag. I've begun the same kind of cleaning out. Yesterday I gave to members of my bookclub odd pieces of Franconia dinnerware and 3 kindergarten oak student's chairs. It's almost as much fun as collecting the items in the first place.
