Weekly Word: Quilting Devotional + Stitching and Gratitude This Week!



 

Hello there!

Thank you so much for stopping in today!  It's nice to be home after our week in San Diego.  I seem to be on a machine sewing streak as well as prepping new projects.  We have had a week of lovely rainstorms!  Poor Chico has been sleeping with us as he is terrified of thunder!  He's a great cuddle bug!

Weekly Word: Holding His Hand + Stitching and Gratitude This Week!

Hello there!

Thank you for stopping by for a visit!  We just got back from visiting my family in San Diego where the weather was perfect and the gardens gorgeous!

Happy Father's Day to all those dads out there!  I hope your day is wonderful filled with family, love, laughter and good food!

I have been responding to comments via email, but have gotten several back as "undeliverable".  Has that been happening to you as well? 

With all my sewing projects getting prepped, I was running out of binding clips, yet loathe to purchase more.  You'll find an economical binding clips hack in my Tuesday To Do section!

Weekly Word: Unto To Thee + Stitching and Gratitude This Week!

 

Hello there!

Here in Las Cruces, out temps have been over 100 degrees!  We now make sure our errands are completed by 11:00 am!  I'm also adding an extra, 5 minute run of our sprinkler system at dusk.  Whew!

I have to say I'm still enjoying having a retired husband at home!  We're going on 8 weeks and still loving it!  True story:  when he would go to work after a week or so at home, I'd shed a few tears as he drove off.  Yes, after 42 years, I'd still miss him.  

I hope you enjoy this post as you find encouragement in the Weekly Word, learn how I've backslid in my reading habits, joined a new BOM and found gratitude in the every day.  

Thank you so much for popping in!

Weekly Word: Healing + Stitching and Gratitude This Week!

   

Hello there!

Wow!  Next week our forecast is for lows in the 70's and highs in the 100's!  I guess it's time to go to my summer schedule:  errands done before 10:00 am and home for the rest of the day!  I've been adding mint leaves to my water for that extra bit of freshness.

Our grandchildren and my daughter taught us how to use the Alexa machine to call my parents.  My husband and I had a wonderful visit with them this morning.  It was good to see them.

I'm reading a book (see My Reading Life) that made me wonder what we choose to do with our emotional/mental pain?  Do we sit with it and take time to process?  Do we go to our Heavenly Father?  Do we pack it in a box and stuff it away?  Do we deny it?  I'm addressing that very topic in our Weekly Word.

Weekly Word: Curve Balls + Stitching and Gratitude This Week!

 

Hello there!

Thank you so much for visiting!  I hope you enjoy this week's post filled with God's Word, books, fiber projects, a fiber stash report and a bit of likes and gratitude from this week!  

Speaking of this week, let us pray for everyone affected by the mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas.  I have to move on from this topic.  Emotions run deep.

My recently retired hubby and I are adjusting to our new non-schedules by enjoying slow mornings and relaxing evenings on the patio filled with good conversation, our favorite music and some slow stitching.  Thus far, this transition into a new era of our lives has been kind of wonderful.  

However we all know life can throw curve balls as well.
