Saturday's Song. Slow Stitching Sunday. A Few Finishes. Sunday Stats.

Saturday's Song.
Events late in 2017 led me to practice surrendering my will to God's with trust and hope in 2018.  It's been a journey of growing faith, personal victory, stronger faith, joy, peace, surrender, steadfast faith, perseverance, building of character, strength - so many blessings from one mere trial!  Additionally, unbeknowest to me, God worked through 2018 to strenghthen me for 2019 as my dad, who has been both mother and father to me, has sudden, new health issues.  
Regardless of the challenges that 2019 may bring, let us choose to go forth with the LORD's joy, confidence, faith, trust and hope into 2019.  
God's Word stands true and steadfast!  

Let's remember:

Slow Stitching Sunday
For the foreseeable feature, I'm planning on working on my Grandmother's Flower Garden.  It's about halfway put together.  Maybe this will be the year it graduates from pieces to a flimsy! 

Here is my dinosaur that was gifted to my grandson....his daddy had fun trying to work out this brainteaser pull-apart ball!  It goes from this
 
to this!


(The pattern was found in this book.)

Here's a few more dishcloths that were given out this Christmas! 



Sunday Stats
Even though I lost track of stats when I became ill, I'm still linking up to the Stash Report at Quilt, Paint, Create just to say, "Hello there!"  I'll start keeping track of fiber used with the New Year!

Progress

Happy New Year, My Dears!

    1. Thank you - I'm learning to take care of myself. I realize now that I have to meet God halfway. I'm praying Dad will recover or at least be comfortable. Yes, I'm pleased with how the dinosaur came out! Even my son-in-law enjoyed playing with him!

    1. You are so right! For now, this will be my Slow Stitching Sunday project. I can hardly wait to sleep under it. I'm considering hand quilting it, but the task seems daunting. Hmmm...one day at a time.

  5. Surrender is harder as we get older. Kudos to you for letting Him through and I hope your health and your father's health improve in 2019. Your dinosaur is so cute! I saw it on the linkup, but thought I had already commented on your stuffed animal, so didn't click on it again. But it's a different one, and it is such a neat puzzle. I don't think I could put it together or take it apart. And of course I love your GFG. I hope you get it to the flimsy stage this year too.

    1. I never thought about that, but you are so right! My own health is steadily improving as time passes away from chemo/radiation. I am grateful for the prayers and well wishes from lovely people such as yourself! Thank you! Daddy has had a very healthy 87 years for which I am grateful. I would love to see him fully recovered and back to his old self. Thank you for clicking on my dinosaur! He was fun to make - once I sat down to work on him. I am so eager to sleep under my GFG!
