My friend Shannon came to visit today (all the way from FL) and we spent the day sewing and chatting (probably more chatting than sewing). I finished the top for the star quilt I started at the retreat a few weeks ago. I am really happy with how it turned out.
I also worked on one of the Women of the Bible quilt blocks ... Rizpah. I had never heard of her before now. David had her two sons killed because of something their father (Saul) had done. Rizpah stood vigil over their bodies day and night, protecting them from birds and beasts, until David decided to allow the boys a proper burial. She was there for nearly 6 months. Wow!! What amazing perseverance. You can find her story in 2 Samuel 21.
