So here I sit on a Saturday morning writing my Friday Reflection...better late than never. Ken is in the kitchen fixing a new pot roast recipe for me. Love my man who jumps in with both feet in the kitchen every once in awhile. Many of my friends take this time of year to share what they are thankful for. It is fun reading what they write and seeing some things in a new way. So here is my list for this week:
-A husband who is a willing cook and clean
-A son who called me from afar just to talk
-A son who lets me be a goof with his girlfriend
-Cold fronts that let me know fall is really on the way
-A kitten who loves to snuggle when I come home
-Cold medicine that stops a cough
-My friends at the Alumni Office for sharing sunshine and warmth with me
-The Peace that only God can give to breaking hearts
-Cat toys to occupy crazy kittah moments
-The trash man who faithfully removes those stinky things in my kitchen from the premises
New on my site this week:
Continuing my way through Psalm 119. Taking it in slowly has allowed me to see Christ in this Psalm like never before.
Confessions of a Tree Hugger
When the Fog Clears
Making a Choice
A Runner's Heart
And on the quilting front. A certain quilt I have been working on will soon be in its new home and I will be able to show you the finished product. In the meantime I have enjoyed finding free patterns to share and joining in my first quilt along.
Thursday Freebies are of the autumn variety this week.
Week One's assignment in the Quilt Along is completed
And below are some bonuses just for you:
Pat Sloan shared the Selvage Christmas Tree tutorial on her facebook page today. One of the comments just cracked me up. "My husband: sweetie, why are you digging through the trash can? Me: because I saw this cute Christmas tree on facebook and I need my salvage edges back! Husband: why don't we just go buy you some salvage edges?" I really need to start saving my selvages to make some of the cute things I have been seeing lately. Have any of you used selvages in your projects? I would love to hear about it and really love to see a photo. (maybe even have you do a guest tutorial for us!)
These tutorials are from last year, so the giveaway is no longer going on.
I am a wife, a mother, a quilter, and most of all a follower of Jesus Christ.
