Phliippians 4:4 Part 2. Patrick's Strength. Glue Basting Tutorial. Book Date. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Philippians 4:4 Part 2
Part 1
Scripture

















Application con't.
Yesterday we defined rejoice, joy and noted the section in red. Joy - and the ability to rejoice always - comes from God!  

I certainly could not have rejoiced through many of my challenges without Him!  I remember when we discussed 
joy and Philippians 2:11.  His joy is our strength.





To the best of our abilities,
let us not grieve
past hurts,
present challenges
or
future fears.  

Let us draw on God's joy 
so that we may be 
healed from past hurts,
strengthened to face present challenges
and 
have ...

Free Pattern: Christmas Joy Pillow from Gray Barn Designs

While Sandy was visiting, we went to the Red Rooster Quilt Store in Dublin, Ohio.  They have a great selection of 2017 Christmas fabrics in stock!

Jingle Toss by Maywood Studio caught my eye because it has a colorful mix of Christmas words and graphics.  I bought 2 fat quarters, a few coordinating fabrics and designed a pillow cover.  Here is the result!

Joy2

I designed the pillow cover to fit a 16 x 16 inch pillow form.  It’s the perfect size for my couch…not to big and not too small!

I used three pairs of ties at the ...

Philippians 4:4. Part 1. I Like! RSC 2017 from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Philippians 4:4 Part 1
Scripture
Observation
Rejoice.
Always.
A message Paul deems worth repeating:
Rejoice!





Application

Really Paul?  Always?  Really?
Even in the midst 
of conflict?
of pain?

of bad news?
Yup.
Paul did.


So what is joy?

I was impressed by the part in red:
"the prospect of possessing what one desires."

We know 
that in all things 
God works for the good 
of those who love Him, 
who have been called 
according to His purpose 
(Romans 8:28). 

So, 
Friends, 
joy is a faith thing.
Therefore, 
it is God who gives us joy - 
His joy.

In the ...

Wanted: Other Quilters Seeking Joy from Pink Doxies



Another Scrap Box Dumped

"The End (of the Year) is coming! The End (of the Year) is coming!" If you heard this, and you only had one quilt to make before the End, what would you make?

Seriously, if you only had one more quilt to make 
EVER, what would you make?


I have been asking myself these kind of strange, but revealing questions all month long. The posts about "My 10 Best...", "My Sewing Goals for 2017", "What I Did Wrong In..." have been prolific in Blogland. I tried to write one myself more than a dozen times. It ...

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: L I G H T S from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Natchitoches Christmas Festival of Lights in Natchitoches, Louisiana. www.NatchitochesChristmas.com:

We spent this weekend in Natchitoches at the Lights Festival. Natchitoches bills itself as "The City of Lights," which has been celebrated since 1926. 


Creole Christmas in Natchitoches - Natchitoches, LA Christmas Festival - One of my favorite events when I lived in LA.:

One of my fondest memories is of my sisters and me playing and rolling down the hill in front of the lake. I also remember picking stickers out of my clothing, which adds to the humor.

Natchitoches Christmas Lights:

Now one of my sisters lives on the lake just beyond that hill, and she is loving enough to invite us (the whole crazy family) to her house for the first weekend of December, which happens to be the ...

The Lost Is Found from From the Strawberry Patch...

How long do you search for a lost item before you give up? It most likely depends on how crucial to your daily routine the lost item might be. I lost this set of keys, two years ago. Car key, house keys (ours and a few select family members) and the usual plethora of shopper reward cards and a library card.  I searched high and low, as you might imagine. Knowing that the car key was on there

Free Motion Quilting - What I have learnt from Quilting Along the Grain

As you know I love patchwork. I have made clothes and bags, but patchwork is my passion!
 
It all started back in 1996 when I spotted a patchwork quilt in a magazine and immediately bought a small cheep sewing machine. That fist king size quilt has pride of place in my bedroom and is still used to build dens!
 

Faded and worn, but a den building staple!
 
For  person who avoided sewing lessons at school because they were for girls that is quite an achievement!
 
When I started patchwork I was  determined hand quilter. I couldn't seem to get ...
