What joy the gospel gives me. I can approach the throne of God with confidence, not because I've done a good job at my spiritual duties, but because I'm clothed in the righteousness of Jesus Christ. ~ C.J. Mahaney

Getting There

Several hours in an easy chair-- Little League World Series baseball droning in the background (yay California, USA!)--and this fall give-away table runner is nearing completion.  I should be able to finish the quilting tomorrow while the girls do school.  I like to have something to keep my fingers busy while they read, do sums, or recite verses. 

I'm slightly behind the eight ball on this; I forgot to pack it along when I went to visit my folks in NC last week.  Just imagine all the stitching I could have completed during my dad's history stories!  I think I can still have it finished in the next day or two.  The edges will be trimmed up nicely and bound in a lovely light turquoise print.  The plan is to draw a name for this on Friday, so holla if you want in.

It's a good thing that you wanted to do a little extra stitching on this, to give me a chance to enter the drawing! I think that would look lovely on our dining room table in China... ;)
