The plans of the heart belong to [wo]man
But the answer of the tongue is from the LORD.
I thought I had it all together. My nice, manageable schedule included time to finish up my Sampler of Psalms [see the design wall], put together a quick and easy version of Aunt Dinah, clean my house, balance the church’s books and mount a new web page for this month’s Bible block. All of which could be accomplished leaving plenty of time to prepare the message for Ucluelet’s Sunday worship and pack for three weeks away from home.
All those careful calculations fell apart with the death of my father on Labour Day weekend. Anyone who’s walked that path will know the mind-numbing list of chores that attend on the death of a parent: from cleaning out his room at Broadmead Lodge [may God richly reward all those fine and caring folks!] to planning a memorial service and notifying friends and family. Needless to say, my “quilter” life took a back seat to “daughter.”
In the meantime, if you’re all caught up with the Bible Blocks, here’s a “sneak peek” at the In the Beginning …God quilt I’ve been planning. If you’d like to make a similar [90″ square] quilt, make:
4 each –12 inch blocks:
- Garden of Eden
- Doves in the Window
- Steps to the Altar
- Jacob’s Ladder [note that our sketch has Steps and ladder in a contrasting background fabric]
4 each– 6-inch Blocks
- Aunt Dinah
- Sarah’s Choice
- PLUS 56 six-inch segments from Night and Day [for the outer border] Take a look at the colouration: the corners are different from the other blocks.
There’s enough there to keep you busy for this month and beyond while Gaye and I are gallivanting around Western Canada. Next month, I’ll post directions for assembly.
Next post: I hope to check in while we’re on the road with photos from our tour. Stay tuned!
“I know the plans I have for you” says the Lord. [in Jeremiah].
