His Sheep Am I ~

 Loopy quilting with "Love" and a heart ~

Summer is finally here for Mrs. Davis the teacher! We leave tomorrow for 3 weeks in Nebraska to visit with Papa -Larry's Dad- between Larry's next semester of school and the finish of this one. Larry is in the 4.0 for his grades, btw, and I'm so very proud of him! 

I have been very slow to post, such a pokey thing to do! This is the most recent finish to share, it's for Ginny B's grandson, born yesterday. Quilted with loops, words, hearts, and love ~


                                                         the back                                    piano key border with lambs added

On my last post, I shared some stars made from a charm square swap in my quilt class. 

Well, with any spare sewing minute this is what is what's happening with those:

 Next up for this one is a border, and I'm planning a pieced one ~

I hope you are all doing well, I do not know how much keeping up with others will happen with only an ipad, but I'm hopin' to try. I am missing my friends in the quilty web world! Hugs to you all ~

"Know ye that the LORD He is God: it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His  courts with praise: be thankful unto Him, and bless His name.
For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting; and His truth endures to all generations." Psalm 100

  2. Hi Pokey - nice to hear you;re taking a break. Teachers work so hard !

    Have a fun break Mrs. Davis.

  3. Great to see a post from you. Great that your school is out. And hooray for Larry and his 4.00! Have a wonderful, safe, and pleasant three weeks!

  4. Love the stars and congrats to hubs. Have you tried blogpress, an app for IPAD? It is what I use. Hugs

  5. Love the sheep fabric. Lovely quilt.
    Who designed the sheep fabric?
    Have a great time for your 3 weeks away.
    Love the way your stars have turned into a wonderful quilt!

  15. Balance your spiritual energy and get in harmony with your soul by practicing these Radha-Krishna meditations.

    Sri Gita Govinda
    -A book written in the 12th century, this is a description of the intimate loving affairs of Radha and Krishna

    Govinda Lilamrta
    -An 400 year old book which poetically describes the eternal daily pastimes of Radha and Krishna

    Ananda Vrindavan Campu
    -This is probably the most poetic and intimate portrayal of Sri Krsna’s life in Vrndavana that has ever been written.

    Prayers of Service to Radha and Krishna (Sankalpa Kalpadruma)

    Prema Samputa The Treasure Chest of Love

    And the following four are taken from Visvanath Cakravarti's Camatkara Candrika, a 300 year old scripture that talks about the love meeting of Radha and Krishna:

    The Meeting in the Box

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Doctor

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Singer

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as Abhimanyu

    And lastly, we have the supreme scripture which describes the 24 hour daily loving affairs of Radha and Krishna in Vrindavan, called Bhavanasara Sangraha. This book is now available on Amazon for Kindle, for only $3.49

    Here is a 41 page sample of Bhavanasara Sangraha:

    The above book can also be read on your PC using Amazon Kindle for PC, download here for free:

  16. Hi Pokey! I know you're away, but I had to comment. I've been terribly remiss about reading blogs these past many weeks. Life can get so darned full, even when you're retired! That's what happens when I have too many opportunities to have quilting fun! Your projects are great. What an adorable baby quilt, and the star blocks are wonderful. I hope you're enjoying your time away from home, and basking in summer days spent with family.

  17. Your quilts are so lovely! :)
    Greetings from Finland!
    Hugs, Ulla

  18. Oh Pokey girl, I have missed you and your sweet bubbly self! Blogging was put on the back burner for awhile so I just went through this years posts. From Larry attending the Art Institute, to the awesome school trip to the ocean, to Jesse's heart (which was SO touching), to coding all the school books (2500? Amazing! Would love for my kids to be in your classroom!!), to all the beautiful quilts that you make. I hope you are enjoying your summer break, we started back to school this week. I've missed you girl, hope all is well!

    PS.. love the sheep quilt... ADORABLE!!

  19. Just stopping in to say hi and to see what you have been up to! I been rather slow in blogging the last several months too! Hope your summer is going well? The sheep quilt is adorable! Love your patriotic stars!


Hello! Thank you for taking time to peek in! If you say hi, I do my best to send back the love :-}pokey
