Today my Bible readings were from the Psalms. today's theme seemed to be, "For His mercy endures forever." I started with Ps. 117- Praise the LORD, all you Gentiles! Laud Him all you peoples! For His merciful kindness is great towards us, and the truth of the LORD endures forever. Praise the LORD!
Moving on to my other goals. My living room is clean- thanks Flylady. I know where my laundry is- again thanks Flylady. I put in sometime with my Turbo Jam dvd and moved my body. I know it had an impact because my upper arms werecomplaining when I was cutting out some quilt squares this afternoon. Which brings me to my quilt studio. Things are starting to look promising in there. This month I started working through Harriet and Carrie Hargreaves' Quilter's Academy Vol. 1. Figured it was high time I honed my skills as I have never even taken a class. Today was spent working on lesson seven using Carrie's Cowboy Corral quilt as inspiration for a fussy cut quilt.
Here it is in the first stages on the design wall.
|My beautiful, perfect strip sets of blue, green and gold. These are the best I have ever achieved.|
|Starting to see the pattern now.|
And by the end of the afternoon I have the main part of the quilt planned out. I will probably play around with exact placement of the fussy cut squares some more before sewing it all together. Then it will sit for awhile until I get to the lesson on adding borders.
