Saturday's Song. Slow Stitching Sundays. Stash Report

Hello There,
I'm so happy to be blogging today and reading your blogs as well!  It will be fun to catch up with you!

Saturday's Song

As we sang this song, Way Maker, this morning, my heart was overflowing. Here's the story behind the song.

Whatever our trials, He is our way maker, miracle worker, promise keeper and chain breaker.  

Slow Stitching Sundays
I finished the last block of Elm Street Quilts and Simple Handmade Everyday Hand Pieced QAL!
I've decided to add the blocks from a 2012 hand piecing stitch along from Why Not Sew?  I have completed some of her blocks already, so it shouldn't take too long to finish up - famous last words!

Today I worked on this lovely embroidery project.  It's the Follow Your Heart by Tamar Nahir-Yanai over at DMC.  I'll be adding a gold cross in the middle of the heart I hope my granddaughter's heart is led by Jesus.    
Consequently, the finished product will be some kind of pillow for my granddaughter's bed to remind her Who should lead her heart.  

Stash Report
Fabric Usage
I finished another quilt - except for the binding.  So, my numbers went up again!
last week - 29.05/100 yards
this week -  38.80/100 yards
Yarn Usage 
I  finished prayer shawl #12.  As you may recall, I donate them to the Prayer Shawl Ministry that hosts our Cancer Care group.  This shawl is like the one I made for my sister - it's glittery!  She attends many civic events, so I made hers with metallic yarn.  As she modeled her shawl, she was so happy - she loved it.  She looked so beautiful!

I realized right then and there that as we go through cancer treatments, we also want to feel pretty - so I made a glittery shawl!

I pray someone will be blessed and encouraged when they wear this!
last week - 107/300 ounces

this week -  117/300 ounces

I hope you check out these parties!

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


  1. The embroidery is darling. I'm sure she'll love it. The shawl is pretty too. Good numbers this week!

  2. I love the colors in your quilt block. Your embroidery is adorable and the prayer shawl is so special. You are keeping busy!!

  3. Your crafting is such a gift. I'm sure whoever receives the shawl will love it. You're so busy, but that is good. Thank you for the scripture song. Have a great week.

  4. Great stash reduction. I love that shawl. Whoever receives it will love it, too. I think that was a little inspired revelation to you for your shawl ministry. We DO all want to look pretty, no matter our circumstances, and sometimes it's very hard. Bless you for your heart to give. I like the little embroidery, too, and think that's a great gift for her.

  5. What wonderful hand stitching projects you are working on!
    Great idea to combine 2 sets of hand pieced blocks in 1 project!
    And I adore the embroidery block!
