Wednesday's Word and Wrap Ups. Pressing On.

Wednesday's Word
Many years ago, my family lived in Okinawa, Japan.  One of the missionaries, Majetta Morris, shared this with me:  "There is no safer place to be than waiting on the will of God."
I cannot tell you how many times her words from so many years ago have blessed, strengthened and encouraged me.  Thank you, Majetta.  Thank you, LORD, for sending her into my life!

Wednesday Wrap Ups
I have a ton of UFO's (unfinished projects) that are taking up too much space in my studio, not to mention by brain.  I've decided to challenge myself to finish one a week - two weeks at the most.  These are small projects that just need a bit of time.  I would also like to finish them using my stash only.  

Here are my first two projects:
This place mat was started at least 5 years ago and is on my To Do Tuesday list for this week.  

I am turning this "accidental" orphan block into another living room pillow!   

It was a $7.50 block, but it came out too small.  I decided to quilt the top, so it should done next week as well.  

Pressing On
Last week's goals were:
1.  Make 1-2 more Morning Glory Blocks. X
2.  Stitch up a hand pieced block. ✔
3.  Make progress on the latest prayer shawl. X

This week's goals are:
1.  Visit Daddy and Mama.
2.  Fix Block 5 from last week - thank you for 
    your comment, Donna!
3.  Finish up the Fireman Place Mat.
4.  Finish quilting the new living room pillow.

I'll be linking up to:

Your comments are so appreciated!  I read each one and will respond by email to you!  :)


  1. That block will make a lovely pillow. Great idea for it.

  2. How fun to take a too-small block and make a matching pillow for the quilt!
