The year is marching along and April seems to have gone by in a flash. With May starting on Monday, I've been busy finishing the May Newsletter.
In Australia, Mother's Day is celebrated in May, and in the Inspiration Column I share this mother's prayer for her sons. Our children don't always follow the way that we want them to and despite having been brought up in a Christian home our boys have drifted away from God. But, even though I think they are far from God, He is not far from them and I'm encouraged by three parables Jesus told in Luke 15 about things that are lost and found again to show the depth of God's grace and love for those that have wandered away, and the length to which He goes to bring them back home to Him. I am forever thankful that He has made a way for us all to go home through the gift of His Son, Jesus Christ.
May is also a stitchery-free month for The Fruit of the Spirit BOM with the blocks completed so far, joined together to make the first row. It's always great to see a project come together isn't it?
For The Sewing Room quilt, it's the second instalment with instructions for the centre stitchery block;
I've been busy with some Tilda fabric making another stash busting quilt in The Quilting Bee
and there is of course some Woolly Things with progress on my jumper and a new baby knit.
In the Last Word, I show my AQC purchases and in Shop News my new pattern Handy Pouches is on special.
As always, I hope you enjoy reading the Newsletter as much as I enjoyed putting it together.
Until next time
