Saturday's Song. Slow Stitching. Stash Report.

Saturday's Song
This song begins with praise for our LORD and Savior.  The plea that follows is amazing:  "Open up my eyes in wonder, show me who you are and fill me with Your heart and lead me in love to those around me."  Imagine if this were the cry of every human being on Earth?!  How our world would be changed!  
If we would do this and then build our lives upon His love as a firm foundation, the possibilities would be endless.  
I am learning to once again put my trust in Him alone so that I will not be shaken.
When life's inevitable challenges hit us, O LORD, remind us to not only listen to Your music, Your Word, Your voice, but to trust and heed as well.  
Slow Stitching 
Work continues on the Hand Pieced QAL blocks.  I finished Block 5, Dorothy.  
I'll be working on Block 6, Florence, tonight.  

Did you know that these blocks are based on the characters in the the novel, Friendship Album 1933 By Frances O’Roark Dowell.  I've been enjoying this podcast very much!

Stash Report
Fabric Usage
I make these Kimberbell mug rugs for Mama for Mother's day.  She loved them.  They're stacked on each other so one does look a bit smaller.  :)

I finished a block for my Stitcher's Garden, but it had a mistake, so it became a pillow cover!
last week - 11.90/100 yards  
this week - 12.90/100 yards

Yarn Usage 
I also finished up some blue dishcloths, which adds another 7 ounces of yarn used up!
last week - 79/300 ounces
this week - 86/300 ounces
