Proverb of the Day. Double Blessings!

Proverb of the Day
Oh LORD!  That you may cleanse me so that You, the Master Silversmith may produce a vessel worthy to serve You and minister to Your people!  

Double Blessings!
Today the LORD blessed me in a most amazing way!  I bought the fabric to make this Easter basket for my youngest grandson.  

UPDATE 3/27/16
Here's a pictures of the first basket I made for my first grandson and my granddaughter.
I followed this amazing tutorial from TeresaDowUnder's (from Sewn Up).  She linked up to yet another wonderful tutorial from Ayumi at the Pink Penguin!


Here is the fantastic blessing part of the story:

I purchased exactly what Ayumi reccommends in her tutorial to make one basket.  The only exception was that I purchased 1/4 yard more of the lining.  

Instead of cutting 2" squares for the main basket, I increased the size to 4 1/2" squares.  Of course, the basket turned out way too big - cutting my outer patchwork in half, I'm going to be able to make two baskets!  

Therefore, Grandson #3 gets his basket and I will already have a basket ready for next year for Grandson #4 - who is due this July!  

Two baskets out of enough fabric for only one.
Double blessings.

If you have ever wondered if 
God provides, He does.

If you have ever wondered if 
God knows what He's doing, 
(Let's be honest, I'm pretty sure we have all been there at one time or another!  :)  )
He does.  

He's trustable.  

Dear Friend, this is my truth.

By the way, I'll post pics of both baskets very soon - after all, they have to be done by Sunday!


  1. Awesome! Thank you for sharing! And the baskets are so cute!

  2. Thank you! I decided to update one of the pictures with the one I made Grandson #1! :)
