Embroider and attach label
Design and begin border

Here's pics of my progress or lack thereof! 

Yea!  Got the binding done on the baby quilt!  
I'm really excited about meeting this weekly goal because it's my OMG (One Monthly Goal)!  Now, just the label and I'm done!

The last two goals will continue on for this week.

I also got my Drunkards' Path blocks cut out!

I did make progress on the Baby M2's afghan, but not yet designed the border. But, I'm grateful for the progress I made.

My poor husband's loungers were abandoned again!

They are waiting so patiently......
Philippians 1:11 (Part 1)

And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, 10 so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.
Philippians 1:9-11

You know, as I reread verse 11, my mind was ready to think, “….filled with the fruit of the Spirit……”.  This got me to thinking,

“What is the fruit of righteousness?”
For that matter,
“What is righteousness?”

According to Webster’s online dictionary it is:
·     : morally good : following religious or moral laws
·     : caused by something that you believe is not morally right or fair

For our purposes, the first definition is appropriate.  As a Christian, I strive to, the best of my ability, to live a morally good lifestyle according to what Jesus teaches in the Bible.  

But what is a “morally good lifestyle”? 
Matthew 5:20 – 48 is a good starting point.  I thought about going over those verses in this post, but goodness!  That would be a whole new study in itself!

Why not take a look at them and come back when you’re finished?  It won’t take but a minute.  I’ll wait for you!

Ahhh, You’re back!


So, we have a snapshot of part of what Jesus taught as living a “morally good lifestyle” – being living fruit of righteousness if you will.

Paul is praying for the Philippians to be filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes via Jesus Christ – to the glory of God.

We talked about righteousness, but what is the fruit of righteousness? 

Well, full disclosure, I did a quick internet search on this very topic and didn't help.

That’s why I keep it simple. 
I study the Word in various versions (mostly NIV and Amplified),
I study the meaning of words.
I pray. 
I go with what the LORD has previously taught me. 
This method served me well before there was an internet.

I am but a sinner saved only
the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and
God’s grace and mercy.

I exist in the fruit of righteousness
by trying my best to live according to God’s Word
Be gentle with ourselves.

I fail.
I sin.
I push repeat

and go back to:

I am but a sinner saved only
the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and
God’s grace and mercy.

Righteousness is so basic.
It’s being morally good.
It’s following spiritual laws/standards.

it comes through Jesus Christ.
Accepting Him as our LORD and Savior!
It’s as easy as ABC!

Here’s an image to make it so clear. I highly recommend you go to the website to print it out and ponder it while coloring!

I'll continue with the rest of Application 
as well as the Prayer next time.  

Be prepared - 
there is a major God Wink! 

Almost brought me to tears.


It did.

Dear Friends, this is my truth.


  1. Yay for a quilt finish! Love the Halloween fabrics... those are so cute! I often put off hemming and repairs. I just don't find those as much fun as quilting...haha!

    1. Thank you for your kind comments! Ha! Now I realize I'm not alone in my reluctance for hemming and repairs! :) Christine, thanks so much for visiting!

  2. The baby quilt is so cute! Thanks for linking to Finished or Not Friday.

    1. Thank you! And thank you so much for hosting the party!

  3. You've got some cute fabrics in your BOM block! And the baby quilt has turned out so nicely. Do share your label, if you don't mind. You got me to thinking I have the alphabet on my Janome and have yet to explore it. I could be using ti for labels! Hope you get the rest of the list completed.

    1. Hi Sharon!
      Thank you! I so enjoy BOM's! I'm glad you like the baby quilt! I had fun with it! I'm realizing it's so much easier and enjoyable to make a quilt using a pattern! I would be happy to share the label! On today's post I showed the block for the label, but there was only time for slow stitching today. Yes! I love using my embroidery machine for labels! It's second hand and I'm just learning to use it, but it's great so far! Thank you for visiting!

  4. You have really been busy! I had to laugh at the photo of your husband's pants!

    1. Yes, it's been fun having time to sew! We've had many chuckles over them as well! I really need to get them done! :)
