In time of trouble

In time of trouble, say,

“First, Lord you brought me here.  It is by your will Lord, I am in this strait place, in that I will rest.  
Next, “Lord, you will keep me here in your Love, and give me Grace in this trial to behave as your child.”  
Then say, 
Lord, you will make this trial a Blessing, Teaching me lessons you intend me to Learn, and working in me the Grace you mean to bestow.”  
And last, say, “In your good time Lord, you can bring me out again.  How and when, you know.”
Therefore, say,
 “I am here (1) by your appointment Lord,
(2) in your keeping. (3) under your training, (4) for your time.

Mug Rug Swap, cont

I told you, I would be back today, that doesn't happen that often, LOL
So, here is my swap partners mug rugs
I just love how we all come up with different 
mug rugs, these will be used with love.  Did you notice the 
Keepsake Needle Card to the left?  Do you remember your grandma 
or mom having these, I do, and I still have some, and others I 
have collected over the years.  They use to be given out by stores our
grandmas and moms use to shop with the the stores names on them.
I love having tea when it is cool enough to have some, so I will enjoy 
my mug rugs with my tea.
Thank You, again Carmie.

I still have pictures to post of projects I will be teaching at Hobby Lobby,
so I will do that the next I come back to visit.  
Till then, Happy Stitching and Blessed Days,

Mug Rug Swap

Quilting Gallery and Little Green Cottage joined together to bring us 
Mug Rug Swap.
We were to make our rug mugs for our partner who lives in a different 
part of the country or in another country.  We were to email our new friend and
get to know them.  My partner is from Liberty Center, IN, pop, 100.  And I live 
in South Florida just north of Miami with a pop. of over 1 million.  I came from 
a small farming community of about 600, and that was in 1975.
Here was the start of my mug rugs, I love it when I go though the scrap 
basket and start pulling little pieces of fabric out.  This is why I save
all of my scraps, (Sam) some of them are very small in size.  
And here are the ones I finished.
A little different then the pattern, I put a bee instead of a butterfly,
and my house on the bottom is going the other way.
I will post my partners tomorrow after I take a picture of them.
Off to bed now.
I hope you have enjoyed the mug rugs,
