Just finished reading "The Pursuit of GOD" by A.W. Tozer..........amazing, good read, YOU MUST READ IT, (The impulse to pursue God originates with God, but the outworking of that impulse is our following hard after Him. All the time we are pursuing Him we are already in His hand: "Thy right hand upholdeth me.")
I hope you all have a great "Lord's Day" today.

Title Sounds like it could be a good story. The Face card was made for my friend's daughter for mother's day, who just had twin boys, the fisherman was a for a good friend of the family who passed away, and the girl with the doll is a card for my cousin's daughter who just had her first communion and I'm giving the doll quilt to in below post.

One of my clients brought this beautiful One Block Wonder Quilt. I think this is a really neat pattern and I hope to try one of my own someday. I quilted in a gold thread, a Fan and Floral Pantograph from Kim Diamond Designs, which went real well with the oriental feel of the quilt, the quilting doesn't show up much on the front, which was the goal to blend, but take a look at the back, it pops with a cream and speckled gold background.

My cousin's daughter had her first communion a week ago and so I thought it would make a nice gift to make a doll quilt for her American Girl dolls, I asked and she still plays with them. Besides I wanted to try out my new half/square triangle template for my accuquilt, which by the way, cut beautiful perfect little knotched half sq. triangles, so when you lay the fabric one side down, one side right side up, all you do is pick up in pairs and chain stitch...so quickly and iron and perfect, amazing. I had some fun using up some scraps and a wild striped backing and binding, complete the quick little project with some double hearts quilted. I hope this is just loved on a lot, I photographed it using my daughter's Magic Attic doll, I found in her room. I think I could get into these little quilts, what a nice feeling to have something done, so quickly.

This is one of the "fun" pictures I have of my mother on far left, my sister next to her, my daugther and myself on the right (one sister absent). July 4th 2006. My mother went home to be with our heavenly Father November 15, 2006. I miss her tremendously and am so thankful of God's promise to reunite us with our loved ones, praise God, I can't wait til those tears are wiped away.
