This past year we have enjoyed using our 'home time' to work on various projects that range from woodworking to making herb lip-balm. Having a wide range of creative interests in our family makes for rarely a dull moment -- and lots of excitement when a project is completed.
Thus, today was an exciting one for me. Last year -- after admiring my grandma's beautiful quilts -- I started a project of my own. And this afternoon I sewed the final seam finishing the quilt top! Working on it little by little over the past year has been a fun treat and I've learned alot:
First -- helping hands make the work go much faster (thank you, Elizabeth, for your ironing)!
Additionally -- it is amazing what can get done in little moments. This truth I am still struggling to learn: each day is made of little moments -- 15 minutes here and there. Big projects can be accompished by using those moments! After all, time is one of the greatest treasures we posses. As Psalm 90:12 says, "So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom."
