Wednesday's Word. BOMs Away!

Wednesday's Word
To fear God it to revere and be in awe of Him, to want to please Him because we trust Him.  See, He fulfills the desires of those who fear Him!  He hears us and saves us!  Would you consider taking the step of fearing and loving Him?   Here is a great study that I hope will bless you!

BOMs Away!
As I've prepared my 2019 Goals, I realized I'm in five BOMs - one of which is a personal goal.  
1.  The popular $7.50 Club hosted by my LQS!  Isn't it curious how different the same blocks look with different fabrics?

2.  Caroline's Teacup QAL @ From My Carolina Home.  Here's my blocks thus far.

3.  I grabbed a cup of courage and joined my LQS's Stitchers' Garden!  It's a skill building class that looks intimidating, but I'll surrounded by loving quilters as well as a great teacher, so I'm eager for our first class on January 16.  

4.  The Fall Into a Quilt Along hosted by Partners in Design got me playing with my precious batiks.  Though the QAL is over, I'll keep sewing!  You may recall that I'm two blocks in.  

5.  I have decided to make Jingle All The Way by Kimberbell!  For me, a BOM format should work.  

Eeesh!  How to handle all these?  Well, I've decided I will work on them on Mondays.  I'll have to kit them.  In other words, one Monday (hopefully I'll just need one day) will be fabric selection, cutting and placing the fabric and all other supplies in separate ziplock bags as kits.    The next Mondays will be dedicated to sewing.  Yes, I know, when we make plans, God laughs!  Are you laughing as well?  I know I'm smiling....

  1. You'll have some beautiful quilts when you are done! Taking one day to kit everything is a great idea and something I have done. There is nothing better than having a little time to sew and everything is ready to go! Have fun!

    1. You are so right! I realized I scheduled a day of activity away from my sewing room tomorrow, so I'll spend a few hours doing just that after I enjoy some Sunday Slow Stitching inspired by Kathy's Sunday Slow Stitching. Take good care!

  2. Hi Miaismine, it sounds like you're being ambitious. Good luck with your plans. Plans are good and can always be adjusted :-)

    1. Hello there! I so agree with you. I remember as a younger teacher, I felt compelled to accomplish my lesson plans every week. So much pressure! A fabulous friend said, "Remember they are called lesson PLANS for a reason." Whew! After that I became a much more relaxed and stress free person and my students enjoyed the rest of our school year! :)

      Thank you for your comment which serves as a kind reminder! Take good care!a

  3. My goodness! All of these QAL's are going to keep you very busy. Nice work so far!

    1. You are so right, Susan! I am keeping focused on the prize at the end of the year. I believe this is my year for QALs. Thank you for your visit and for hosting Midweek Makers!
