Project Accomplishments:  I finished cutting the pieces for the narrow star points. I began testing the paper piecing method I reviewed yesterday. Part of it went OK. The final steps proved to a challenge. I took out two lines of stitching to evaluate the last step. I will continue to try working that out. Finished sample but expect to do another, as I was not satisfied. I put FrayCheck on about half the narrow star point fabric pieces.

Book:  Title: #5 Bridge of Sighs —  Author: Richard Russo — # of Discs: 21 –Listening Time: 26 hours 59 minutes

Comments: I realized after I listened to part of disc 1 that I had listened to this book before. I decided to continue. I listened to discs one through four.

Exercise:  Walked on treadmill for 20 minutes

Tools:  Fray Check

Observations:  This morning, I read an article about an artist who designs stained glass windows. This fellow, Richard Hanley, feels that prayer is an important part of his art and success in life. I also feel prayer is a centering part of life but do not do it often enough. I am adding a category to this blog called prayer. It is a very personal aspect of life but I have observed how shared prayer can make great things happen.

Prayer: Lord, I give the work of my hands and mind up to your guidance. Guide me so I see this quilting project through to a successful end. I pray that the work of my hands pleases you.

Diversions: Really none—I took a nap late in the afternoon.
