The Worship-Driven Life......AW Tozer

'Worship,' Tozer explained, 'is to feel in your heart and express in some appropriate manner a humbling but delightful sense of admiring awe and astonishing wonder and overpowering love in the presence of that most ancient Mystery, that majesty which philosophers call the First Cause but which we call Our Father which Art in Heaven.'

Home Again

We are home from Devon now, had a great and hectic time. Yogi Bear in 3D was a huge hit and we took trips to the Tidal Road, Farm shop and beach

Quilts for new Grandson

Some time back my daughter sent me the link to a quilt she wanted me to make for her new baby, it was made of natural coloured linen and quilted with embroidery silks, just making small crosses in different colours spead across the linen fabric. Its quite an old fashioned design and the photo's dont really capture it too well. I also wanted to make him a patchwork quilt which is picured after the linen quilt and I mentioned in my last post. I never really know how to bind quilts well so I went on you tube and found a good clip and I am pleased with the outcome
This is the link for the You Tube clip

In the two following photo's he is wrapped in one of the quilts that I made for the twins

Below he is lying on the linen quilt

Grandson and his quilt

Here's a couple more photo's of the new grandson...still awaiting confirmation on his name.

Also the quilt I am making for him. I did make a linen quilt that my daughter chose with crosses sewn on with embroidery silks, but wanted to make a patchwork one too so it is below but not yet completed. I will post it again when done. I bought the fabric which is stars and stripes with some boats in the middle a few years back in South Africa, saving it until I had a special project to make. I  made it into one big log cabin block which I saw as a baby quilt in Martha Stewarts
