“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so? Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect. Matthew 5:43-48

I made this the other day for Mabel. The basket we had used for the dog toys was very old and worn out.
here. I changed up the size, to make it shorter and wider. Works great. Only problem is, I wasn't counting on Mabel thinking she could use it as a bed!! She drags it to where she wants it, and pulls out most the toys. Then plops her little self right in. Oh dear! That fusible interfacing is not going to hold up to repeated squashing. I hope this new fad wears off.
I also am glad to say I got the Paschal Lamb made into a framed flatfold before Holy Saturday. So I enjoyed my Lenten piece in it's finished state for one whole day before Easter Sunday when He arose!! I used Vonna's tutorial on a flatfold.
I am going to make up a mug mat today. I finished the embroidery for it last night. It is a sweet, little pattern I have had printed out and waiting for me for two years! Glad it is finally stitched.
Oh, so many treats are calling my name! I simply must get on that treadmill, even if I move at a turtle's pace.
Have a wonderful day in the Lord my friends.
Stuffing my face with chocolates, stitching and praying,
