Thoughtful Tuesday. To Do Tuesday.

Thoughtful Tuesday
This post was written by Boma from The April Journal many month's ago.  I commented on it on March 4, 2018.  Boma responded with prophetic words.  Via a situation which completely broke my heart, my loved one has been on a good road for near two months.  Reminds me of the Scripture:

Emphasis on 

In other words,

Boma writes that the Canaanite mother in this Bible accounting  (Matthew 15:21-28) never stopped pleading for her daughter despite the judgement and discouragement around her.

Hence, even after 25 years, I will continue to pray for my loved one.  The anchor holds for me - and for you - my dear reader.
Here is the song writer's testimony and the story behind the song.

The anchor holds despite the ship being battered and the sails being torn.  
Jesus is with us.
I promise.
The anchor holds.

Be like the Canaanite woman and keep faithfully pursuing God.  
If at this point in your life you can't see yourself doing this, perhaps you can pray for such faith.  Or ask a friend to pray for you?
God will respond.  
Keep your faith - even if it's as a mustard seed - keep your faith, dear one!  
mustard seed faith

To Do Tuesday
Last Times's List 
1) Make 1 or 2 more yo-yo flowers. This week's are so colorful!  ✔  

2) Make some more progress on my my afghan.     I thought I lost a bunch of flowers and I found them!    That would have been a ton to make all over again!  I just need to make my green flowers now!  Whew!  

3.   Sew a few more of fun four patches inspired by Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom Quilts while visiting with Dad.    

4.  Make labels for the Construction quilts!  I made one.  I'm struggling to find a sweet poem/quote to put on the second label, so I've asked my daughter to help me.  She is quite talented with words.  :)

5.  Contact the organizations to give out the drainage bags

I also finished the Attic Windows quilt top for the El Paso's Children's Hospital!  My daughter is quilting it as I write this!  
 I love how the pattern is accent by the lighting!

Another one will soon be on its way to my daughter!  The story behind it is here if you'd like to read it!  

This Week's Goals
1) Make 1 or 2 more yo-yo flowers. 

2) Stitch up at least 1/2 of the green skein of yarn for my afghan.

3) Trim the four patches (inspired by Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom Quilts )I've made this week.  I've already made 100 of them!  Yea!

4)  Make labels for the baby quilts!  

5)  Follow up with the organizations to give out the drainage bags

6) Work on my Grandmother's Flower Garden.  

7) Finally make these pillowcases!

Future goals:
Work on my purple blocks for my RSC Challenge quilt from 2017.

  1. Thank you for all you shared,! Yes, we keep praying! Thank you for sharing this beautiful song and the very strong testimony. Your attic windows quilt is beautiful. I´m sure it will make a child happy. :-)

    1. Thank you, Birthe for your encouraging comments! You know, I had thought that Attic Windows quilts were difficult to make, but, using this pattern, I found it fun and easy! Thank you for visiting!

    1. Thank you! I've never been the best at choosing colors and usually end up asking my husband or daughter for their input. As I was alone that day, I used the suggestions on the selvage of the focus fabric. Isn't it funny that when help is right in front of us, we rarely avail ourselves of it? :)

  3. I love to quilt too. My summer project is to make a T-shirt quilt for my son who just graduated from high school in May. I've made 2 for his siblings on their graduation. such a great way to save the memories without the clutter!

    1. Wow! That's awesome! Are T-shirt quilts difficult? I'm sure your children treasure their quilts!

  4. Thanks for your reflective devotional. My path has wandered lately and I need to recharge my faith. It is always a part of my make up. But I have taken it for granted. Also your attic windows is so bright and cheery! Somebody will have a big smile when they get it!

    1. Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment! Yes, we sometimes do take our faith for granted. This blog helps me to stay on track - most of the time anyway! :) Progress, not perfection, yes? I am happy with the attic windows quilt. Finally, I relied on the color suggestions on the selvage and wala! I'm eager to deliver the quilts to the hospital!

  5. That's a wonderful attic window - so cheerful, and yes, I do like the sunlight on it!

  6. Great attic windows! The colors really pop!

    1. Thank you! I enjoyed making it! By the way, thank you for sharing the solution for our blogger comment woes (https://www.quiltfabrication.com/2018/06/blogger-comments-patterns-and-quilts.html)! I'll be posting about and linking back to you if that's ok? Thank you so much!

  7. What a beautiful Attic Window quilt, thank you for sharing!

    1. Thank you! I was so surprised at how easy it was! :)
