"For His Glory" blocks

After 3 days of tracing and making templates, I now have 56 blocks chosen for my latest project. It has taken longer than I thought it would. But, I do enjoy tracing and measuring.

I sat down this afternoon and was able to complete 7 blocks.

It certainly doesn't sound like a lot considering it took me between 5 and 6 hours to complete them. But, I am satisfied with the results. I have decided to use black, white, and gray fabrics. I wish I had enough solid white to begin embroidering the bible quotes on the block borders. I had thought about using some type of pen. I may still do that as it would be very much faster than embroidering.

Do any of you have a favorite pen that will last through many washings. I do want to use the quilt on a bed when it is finished. 

We did get some more snow last night. Kelsey, Zak, and Aiden stopped by and we went to the local El Parian to eat. It started to snow  about the time we could meet Larry. We had to eat quickly so they could get home before the roads got really bad. And, I am such a chicken at driving on snow.
Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.

When we got up this morning, this is what the pond looked like.

It has not been this frozen over as long as we have lived here. I guess this is a good indicator of how cold is and has been for days. Today, most of the snow melted but there is still ice out there on the pond. Tomorrow I think there is a small chance of freezing rain. Then, on Monday and Tuesday, there is a 50% chance of snow.

We have valentine parties on Wednesday, parent-teacher conferences on Thursday, and then we will be out on Friday and Monday.  I hope this is our last bout of snow, sleet, and ice. I am so ready for warm weather and spring.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.


  1. snow for us too for Monday and Tuesday - but I saw that it is to get in the 50's by Thursday for about 5 days - it will be so welcome and I hope it doesn't change its mind!!

  2. Pigma Micron pens are great. I've had a set for 15 years and they still work great and are laundry proof. Sandra Neel Hutchs
