Our service today couldn’t have been nicer! Live streaming as well as Facebook and radio. It was Pastor Lund, his wife and 3 kids, the son of two of our members who is in the area, a couple of which the husband is on the consistory and me. We followed an order of service and these are the songs we sang – I played and everyone online could sing along:
Great Is Thy Faithfulness
It Is Well With My Soul
In Christ Alone
The sermon was The Lord of Hosts is With Us from Psalm 46:11
Scripture readings were Matthew 6:25-34 and Psalm 46:1-11
The message was BE STILL!
After the service I went to the grocery store where everything was in stock except toilet paper and I didn’t need it anyway.
This week I’m going to practice being still, not worrying or panicking. You do this with me and we’ll discuss ways that we’re “being still”.
On the subject of new Itty Bitty patterns for spring and summer. We have three new ones prepared to show you but honestly I don’t know if you want to see them or if you’re simply too involved with the news. Read above – Be Still. Be still and ….. SEW! Tell me in the comments if you’d like me to post them – they’re all $3.00 patterns and will fit in a business envelope with one stamp that I’d ask you to provide.
Now on that subject of pattern orders – please read the ordering directions – our name and address is located right below our picture. All checks should be made out to Country Threads. I do not have the time or the patience to deal with special instructions on returning a pattern or exchanging a pattern. I don’t have many issues with any orders except a few from readers who must not be able to READ!!! Sorry for my short fuse on this subject. For some reason 99.9% of the paper pieced house orders got it right.
Also if the mail would stop running, I wouldn’t be able to get your patterns sent out to you. What do you think?

And here’s what Diane found when she was Death Cleaning – the very first issue of the Quilt Sampler with us in the front. She said she’s keeping it. I said I was keeping my copy, too, and would include it on the pew at my funeral for someone to take home. Ha!
Everywhere I look I find more unfinished projects – here’s another one! Ugh.
And another dishpan full of triangles to make 2″ finished triangle squares. Ugh again.
And I trimmed up this burros tail succulent and yes, believe it or not, I’m threw all of these trimmings away. YUP! Death Cleaning has made a real impact on me – I know last night I said what’s the point but it sort of gets fun – just throw the things away. This is a personal triumph for me to throw those plant trimmings away! Hahahaha!
What’s on for tomorrow, you ask? Nothing – absolutely nothing. How about at your house? And by the way, thanks for closing the ads – we can pay the copier lease again this month! Keep your chin up and remember – be still.
