First "finish" for 2015

Here's a picture of a fun little whole cloth baby napping quilt, or oversized changing pad. It's going to a mom-to-be in my church family. She's a sweet kid (under 30). I don't know the daddy much. Those young people tend to be shy around us Grannies!!  I know they'll get plenty of use out of it. 

DIL, Leslie, uses the smalls I made for her girls as dresser scarves, doll bed blankets, and whatever the need may be. She says just knowing they are sturdy, and can go in the washer and dryer make them versatile. 

I used to get all in a tither  making baby quilts. Then I realized the most important thing was for it to be useful. If I make an heirloom piece it won't be for a child to "look at"! 

So there you have it,
Sweet, simple, and finished!

Let's Create Today,

PS: I've been quite this month. First I was away on vacation, then I got a nasty cold/flu bug. I am still recouping but spending a few more hours each day in a state of wakefulness. LOL

My Only Goal for 2015

The following picture is of a beautiful wall hanging I saw at a wedding back in February, 2013. I don't know the artists, but I know the subject!

The first post of the year is my hardest!  
I spend quite some time trying to set some reasonable goals, but not too comfortable. I have made lists, crossed things off, added more items, and realized that they just weren't what I wanted to say. 
This year is different for me.
In December I felt led by The Holy Spirit to drop out of several group activities and personal pursuits. 24 hours each day is all I have, and I want them to be of value. So, there's a lot of letting go going on. And, it's not bothering me. But I was still bothered by the whole "goal" thing. So, I asked for some clarity and this morning I received my answer. 
What was bothering me? All of the goals that I have ever had were related! The common thread was that it really didn't matter if that particular goal happened today, tomorrow, or a year from now. There was something bigger than all of them. My goals were too small and in all reality, very attainable.
I knew what that one major goal was. I'd known for a long time. I just never put it into words. 
I know I will fall far short of it!  But, I know that as long as my heart's desire is right, I will succeed!

Bringing Honor and Glory to GOD in all I do, for the rest of my life. 

Let God Inspire Us To Create to His Glory and Honor
