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.

Finally A Little Stitching!

I've been working on these sunflowers for a long time. I'd sew a little, then put it down and do something else. The background fabric is a deep yellow/gold and for some reason it was hard to see the lines. I first traced them with the blue wash-away pen but that just seemed to fade into the background so I washed that out and retraced the whole thing with a red pen. That was much easier on my eyes. I want to make a throw pillow but don't have any coordinating fabric yet. I'm going to take this with me Saturday and go to a quilt show I found out about that's in Slidell, Louisiana this weekend. The ad said they will over 300 quilts but it didn't mention vendors. Surely they'll have vendors. Right? All quilt shows have vendors. Right? Promise me they'll have vendors!

I love your sunflowers and the colors! Hope you'll share what you find this weekend. So glad you got to do some stitching - I need to get busy. So many things to finish up.

Good to see you have some time for yourself. I've been to Slidell, we ate at a seafood market that had a restaurant in it. It was very good. Sorry I don't know the name of it.
It wouldn't be a quilt show without vendors!!!
Have a great time.

I love the sunflower pattern and the gold background is perfect. Where could I find this pattern.

Sometimes I hit the vendor booths before I ever get to the quilts. For your happiness, I hope there are some.

I think that will be a very pretty pillow. I have a couple of blackwork samplers to start.

The stitching looks great. Catching up on your blog I am so inspired to try a summer of mission work like you and your husband are doing. We will be retiring in a couple of years (at age 62) and was just telling my husband about your blog and how much we would enjoy doing something like this. We had also been talking just yesterday that you never hear about Haiti anymore and wondering if groups were still helping those folks.
