An Evening Sky & A Prayer

P1070846

Come Holy Spirit

Replace the tensions within me with a holy relaxation;

Replace the turbulence within me with a sacred calm;

Replace the anxiety within me with a quiet confidence;

Replace the fear within me with a strong faith;

Replace the bitterness within me with a gentle light;

Replace the coolness within me with a living warmth;

Replace the night within me with thy day;

Fill the emptiness,

Dull the edge of my pride,

Sharpen the edge of my humility,

Light the fire of my love,

Let me see myself as you see me, that I may see you as you have promised.

Amen

Blessings to you this day!

A Flower Opens

The Peonies are opening during the day and closing at night.  Each day their petals lighten to a soft parchment color. It might be hard to tell from the picture, but this flower is larger than my hand!

I just finished quilting the Charming Coins Doll Quilt.

The quilt is ready to come out of the frame.

This doll quilt was a joy to quilt!

P1070787

I used a Warm & Natural Needled Cotton Batting.  I’m anxious to see how the top shrinks after being washed.

P1070762

I will take the little top out of the frame, sew the binding on the edges, and wash it.

This quilt is for sale and can be purchased by clicking the STORE button found at the top of this post.

Hoping the pieces of life are coming together for you!

Matilda’s Quilt

P1070733

This baby quilt was given to my grand daughter Matilda when she was in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) where she spent two weeks when she was born early!  I give thanks for the hands that made Matilda’s Quilt!

Matilda was born over a year ago on Christmas Day at the Peace Health Sacred Heart Medical Center Riverbend Springfield, Oregon.  Over 300 volunteers make quilts for the babies at this hospital!

Every time I see this blanket, I think of my dear 4 pound baby grand daughter coming into the world!  This 57″ x 46″ quilt was machine pieced and machine quilted by dear people just for Matilda!  I give thanks for their handwork!
