Thoughtful Tuesdays: Whose Voice?

Thoughtful Tuesdays:  Whose Voice?
During our walk with Christ, we have so many distractions, or voices as Lesley from Life in the Spacious Place stated.  Technology, doubts, opinions of others can bombard us, but I like what Lesley said:  we "have to be intentional about which voice we listen to."  

She shares a beautiful song called Voice of Truth by Casting Crowns.  Go on over there and be encouraged!  I bet you'll be raising your hands in praise to the God Almighty - the true voice of truth!  

Last Times List
Wow!  It's been ages since I've even looked at a list for sewing.  Between work, the stress of waiting and playing with grandbabies (such an awesome stress reliever), my sewing machine has been on a bit of a hiatus.  Slow stitching is my therapy.  Hmmmm....that would be a great sign!

1) Finish the Covered in Love squares.  Done!
2) Finish a pillow I started last year.  Done!

The fabric makes this pillow so pretty!  I love it!  Here is the piped edging (is that what it's called?)

3) Contact the organizations to give out the drainage bags.  Not yet.
4) Make progress on my afghan - the Maria's Blue Crayon Spring Granny Afghan CrochetDone!
5) Do a fabric pull for the new Y-seams Tumbling  Blocks prototype with my new Accuquilt DieNot yet.

After look at the list, I guess I've done pretty good!

This week's list will be more attainable.  I'm going to go with slow stitching projects as that's where my heart is right now.

This week's list
1.  Make at least 6 yo-yo flowers to add to my quilt.

2.  Finish up the yellow and blue flowers for my afghan - the Maria's Blue Crayon Spring Granny Afghan Crochet.  
4.  Sew a few more of these fun four patches inspired by Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom Quilts.  

3.  Contact the organizations to give out the drainage bags.
