Hidden Stars

I found this book and totally love most of the projects.  Even though it is marketed for layer cakes, charms and jelly rolls, I am going to be using fat quarters. 

 The first project I decided to do is Hidden Stars in blues and yellows. 

I can't get over the beauty of the fall this year.  

Look at these trees that are viewed from my deck!

I woke up this morning thinking of the Chris Tomlin song called How Great is Our God.  He based this song on Psalms 93 and 104.  If you don't know the words, he writes in the first verse:

The splendor of a King, clothed in majesty
Let all the earth rejoice
All the earth rejoice

He wraps himself in Light, and darkness tries to hide

And trembles at His voice
Trembles at His voice

How great is our God, sing with me

How great is our God, and all will see
How great, how great is our God
And then I saw the most spectacular sky this morning. 

I've been playing around with some fabric that a friend gave me for my birthday and think that this is the beginning of a table runner.  What do you think??

Another Radium Trip

My Mom and Dad invited me to join them in Radium for the long weekend in September.  What a beautiful weekend we had together.  Being that life has been difficult lately, it was nice to ground myself again and go back to my roots.    

My mom is such a caring, loving person who totally pampered me for the weekend.

My dad, as his usual crazy self, provided much in the way of hugs for this weary soul as well as much comic relief!

My mom bought these gigantic marshmallows - some were white, some pink and some white and pink and boy were they yummy.  Perfect for roasting over the open fire.  

But, believe me, one is enough, especially when smooshed in between two chocolate covered cookies!

Now onto some real exciting news!  My sister and I are planning a vacation together . . . can hardly wait.  She hasn't been on a vacation for a long time and I am looking forward to enjoying one with her.  Will post where we decide to go later.
