Simple Way of Life

Simplicity flows from well-ordered living.
  It is less a matter of doing without, than a spiritual quality that simplifies our lives by putting first things first.
  A simple way of life, freely chosen, is a source of strength, joy, and comfort.
  Friends are advised to strive for simplicity in the use of our earnings and property, and in our style of living, choosing that which is simple and useful.  This does not mean that life is to be poor and bare, destitute of joy and beauty.
  Each must determine, by the Light that is given, what promotes and what hinders the compelling search for inner peace that enables us to listen deeply to God.

Stitched with Love

This is a quilt I put together for my youngest son's high school graduation.

 Each 12-inch quilt block was lovingly designed and created by a family member or friend.  As you can see, the blocks are all very different, unique, and creative!
Once I received all the quilt blocks, I sewed them together with dark green cotton fabric.  The backing is made from a twin-size flannel flat sheet.
 A quilt shop did a lovely job machine quilting the piece.


A quilt is a blanket of love.
