2 Psalm blocks and a camera

"River of Delight" is for Psalm 36. "How priceless is your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings. They feast on the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light." Ps 36:7-9

"Prairie Flower" is for Psalm 103 and is the final block I am making for my niece's quilt. "As for man, his days are like grass, he flourishes like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more. But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord's love is with those who fear Him....Ps 103:15-17

My plan was to sashing these together with black fabric and border it with grape vine fabric that I have leftover from my Women of the Bible quilt. The colors in these blocks are a little different though and may not go as well with that fabric. So I will have to see how it all looks together.

This next picture is the first I took with my new camera that I got for my birthday :-)  It just came in the mail yesterday and it was late till I could play with it...due to waiting for the battery to charge.  This shot of my sewing room may be TMI as you can see at least 2 of the cat beds in here and the dog collars off for the night. I'm kind of like an 8 year old that loves to keep trinkets and stuff around to look at... which leaves the not the neatest of sewing areas and this room shows it. 

And here is the first picture of Elinor with the new Canon Elph. She's not as annoyed as she looks...or at least I didn't think she was.  She is sitting on yet another sewing room cat bed. The girls are such big helpers in here, they deserve the best :-)


  1. Lovely blocks! I wish my cats were as well behaved as Elinor and would sleep in a cat bed, they prefer my chair, or the sewing machine extension table, or right behind the sewing machine, or...anyplace else that is not their bed.

  2. Love those beautiful blocks! And I am so glad the camera resurfaced, even if it did mean a wasted trip back up the hill. And hey, guess what I have for you? wink wink

  3. I love your blocks! Beautiful solid fabrics! Congratulations on the new camera :-)

  8. Your sewing room looks a lot neater than mine!
