I'm very late getting on here today. It was just one of those mornings where I just seemed to be spinning my wheels. I mentioned yesterday that I cleared some "sanity" space in my sewing room. I also finished the "Kitties" prayer quilt that I want to get done this weekend. The rest of the group will hand sew the binding down and tie it off.
I am also practicing my sawtooth borders with "Cinnamon Hearts" mini quilts (Thimbleberries). I am going to make them into pillow like the one shown. Piecing is a real challenge for me - especially something like the sawtooth borders. But I am determined to master those half triangles because I love the way sawtooth borders look.
I also made a batch of our new scented candles: Maple Syrup Festival I can't believe that the Shepherd Maple Syrup Festival is less than a month away. All of a sudden I feel pressed for time - but this year I have a little more of it available.
Word of the day:
Saturday of the Fifth Week of Lent
Many of the Jews who had come to Mary
and seen what Jesus had done began to believe in him.
But some of them went to the Pharisees
and told them what Jesus had done.
So the chief priests and the Pharisees
convened the Sanhedrin and said,
"What are we going to do?
This man is performing many signs.
If we leave him alone, all will believe in him,
and the Romans will come
and take away both our land and our nation."
But one of them, Caiaphas,
who was high priest that year, said to them,
"You know nothing,
nor do you consider that it is better for you
that one man should die instead of the people,
so that the whole nation may not perish."
He did not say this on his own,
but since he was high priest for that year,
he prophesied that Jesus was going to die for the nation,
and not only for the nation,
but also to gather into one the dispersed children of God.
So from that day on they planned to kill him.
So Jesus no longer walked about in public among the Jews,
but he left for the region near the desert,
to a town called Ephraim,
and there he remained with his disciples.
Now the Passover of the Jews was near,
and many went up from the country to Jerusalem
before Passover to purify themselves.
They looked for Jesus and said to one another
as they were in the temple area, "What do you think?
That he will not come to the feast?"
God bless our troops!
