Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for all the kind, loving and supportive comments you showered on me. I have read and reread each one. I know I need to give myself time to settle and grow accustomed to my new surroundings. I also need to be thankful and stay positive. We visited another church yesterday and it felt so good to worship and be taught from God's Word. Today I started off the morning in Ephesians 5. One of the passages that have settled on my heart today is "…and find out what pleases the Lord." (Eph 5:10 ) I needed to be reminded that my kids are watching how I am handling the move and though we are sad, my husband is so happy to have us all here with him again after six long months. I love how God's Word changes your perspective for the better.
I ordered some fabric from Kerri and it arrived on Saturday. Opening a package of fabric is like getting flowers or finding the perfect vintage treasure for me. Since my sewing room will not be set up for at least another two weeks I found my box of scrap fabric and starting cutting them into 2 1/2" strips and blocks and 4 1/2" blocks. I was inspired by Allison's quilt. Over the weekend I found two stools at World Market that look good in the kitchen and scored a wonderful vintage rose tablecloth at a local shop. I also found some beautiful hanging baskets on sale not too far from my house. All in all, it was a good weekend to recharge and refocus.
Be blessed today!
