Make sure to bop over there to enter. This line looks alot like the vintage sheets I've been collecting. While my machine was gone to repairland, I did manage to get two quilts cut out. One is from vintage sheets. While I'm excited to make something with them, alot of them are thinning and stretch easy. With "Dream On" you have the look but not the hassle. There are advantages to both.
I wanted to share alittle about my trip to Chicago. My husband had a meeting and the kids and I tagged along. We hit the Field Museum, Water Tower Place (loved that my almost 16 yr. old still dragged me into the American Girl Store) saw a musical and ate some good food. But, three days were enough. My checkbook is in pain, and honestly, my heart hurts a bit. I have a very difficult time going into a store to buy things I don't need when there a people begging on the street right infront of the entrance to the store. Now, I know that some of them may be begging for ill purposes but others clearly are in need. I couldn't stop thinking about this passage of scripture...
"Then the righteous will answer him, Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you? The King will reply, I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me." Matthew 25:37-40.
The one thing I've learned, is the more you walk with Jesus and study his word, the more you will notice what is going on around you. You will hear him talk to you, maybe in scripture, maybe through the eyes of someone else, maybe through his creation or any number of ways. It is what we do with the knowledge he gives us that matters. So for now, I'm pondering this experience. It was good to get away and have family time together before one child is back to college and the other is back to highschool. Chicago has an energy that my husband loves. For me, I started to exhale when our train crossed into Michigan and I could see Lake Michigan through the fields.
