Tis beginning to look
I grumbled at myself for goofing off for awhile Sunday afternoon instead of hemming the dining room curtains. I waited til 10. Got one pinned and sewn. Second will be done tonight. Good idea to hold panels together. Are they the same length? No. Panel that I'd hemmed was 1/4 inch longer than pinned one. Sigh. I'm thankful I listened to my gut instinct. Check first or you could be sorry. Tearing out a hem is no fun! I'm thankful I remembered how to load the bobbin on my Bernina machine. It's been awhile. The color of curtains I liked didn't come in the shorter version. I cut off 15 inches. Think maybe I'll use left over fabric to make a bag with fabric lining...a purse? The silver goes well with the walls and my photography. Needed to buy a different rod as well. Good thing Kohls had a good sale. Wal-Mart had too many choices for rods. But I finally picked one.
I best move on to sewing and put laundry away. Never ceases what a day has in store for us to do. Ordinary and then oh goodness. What do you mean that another friend dies of an apparent heart attack? Yes and with no warning Tammie G died Thurs. Unreal and we all try to make sense of it. We were in homeschool group together. Hard to lose someone so close to the holidays. A memorial service on Sat. Sometimes I just don't want to go.
God help us in times of need, stress, grief, confusion, brokenness, sickness.......what else can you add to this list? But" His mercies are new every morning. Great is his faithfulness. The Lord is my portion says my soul, therefore I will hope in him........" Lamentations 3:22-23...one of many scriptures that comes to mind in times like this. I cannot fathom my life without God. He is my only hope!
Have a blessed week!
