Awesome devotion this morning…

From God Calling…

Tangled Skeins

In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength. -- Isaiah 30:15

Feel that . . . trust Me. Am I not leading you safely, faithfully? Will you believe Me, your Master, that all this is really to bring the answer to your prayers?

Remember that I am the Supreme Being who knows all and can control all.

Directly you put your affairs, their confusion, their difficulties, into My Hands I began to effect a cure of all the disharmony and disorder.

You must know that I shall cause you no more pain in the doing of it than a physician, who plans and knows he can effect a cure, would cause his patient. I will do all as tenderly as possible.

Tell Me that you trust Me in this.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters ... he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Psalm 23:2, 3

Bzzzzzz…

I have a great little take along project right now…It’s called the BeeKeeper’s Quilt.  Designed and sold by Tiny Owl Knits, it is all the rage on Ravelry right now.  It’s a great way to revisit some of your favorite sock yarns (leftovers from socks or shawls) or just another reason to buy more… Here is the project photo from Tiny Owl Knits…

A day of thrifting, surprise meetings and good food

What a lovely day...at Port A and the kids went to the aquarium. So I was on my own. With the South Jetty classifieds in hand, I took off for some garage sales and thrift stores. First one I stopped at was in the Lost Colony subdivision and I found some beautiful textiles...


A quilt piece, table topper and napkins, tea towel, and two darling mini stockings made out of quilts.
Then I headed back into town to one of the churches...they have a great thrift shop. Found a bit of bright fabric, DVD and VHS to leave here for the kids, some old candlesticks to craft with, a bag of yarn for 2 dollars. Heck there was alpaca in there... And somebodies cut knit and crocheted dishcloths.





Last stop I didn't find anything to purchase but ran into an old Hondo buddy Dana Pope. It was so good to see her and visit with her. What a nice surprise. Then before heading home I stopped at the Phoenix for lunch. It has been a long time since I've been and I wasn't disappointed! Yummy crab cake with aoli, broccoli and rice. Had creme brûlée for desert. Heaven.

August Break picture a day...

Just saw this on Betz White's Blog thought I'd play along...here is what she had to say
"Yesterday I was over at Susannah's blog and came across her concept of "The August Break". In her words:

"Okay, here’s the plan for the August Break: you simply share one photo (or more!) per day on your blog – Monday to Friday, or every day. Or whenever you feel moved to share. Using any camera – DSLR, compact, Polaroid, Holga, iPhone (my choice), Instax, film or digital – with or without words – anything goes! – for the whole of August. No pressure – just looking at August through your camera lens as a way to be more present this summer. And to have a little break from the pressures and expectations of regular blogging."
End of note from Betz..."

So I thought I would play...
