Brag Monday/Tag-Tuesday

I would like to thank you all who have been praying for my dear mom-in-law. She is doing much better after the stroke, gaining strength and mobility every day. Praise God! 
I thought I would play along with Tag-Tuesday, the theme being paper piecing. Nothing I love better than taking scraps of paper and making something pretty with them. Of course since I used the beautiful scraps that Jacqueline sent me, how could I go wrong?

 I used an image from The Graphics Fairy, so I will link this with Brag Monday also.

Thought for the Day: I have been thinking about my purpose lately...I'm looking for a job and reevaluating what is important to me. I found these quotes to be wonderfully insightful concerning the big picture.
"Thou hast formed us for Thyself, and our hearts are restless till they find rest in Thee." Augustine
"The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever."
Ah, wonderful, clear perspective!

Blessings to You,


  1. Nancy, I really, really like this. Simply vintage!
    (Glad to hear your MIL is doing better, too!)

  2. Hi Nancy,
    What a lovely tag!! I love how you used all different ribbons on this, and the colors are wonderful for Fall!
    I'm so sorry to hear about your Mother in Law, I'm glad she's doing better now though. I hope she has a full recovery.
    Thanks so much for playing along for "Brag Monday", I really do appreciate it!

  10. Hi, Nancy! Gorgeous tag! The last time I did a major overhaul on my working life, I referred to the book "The Pathfinder: How to Choose or Change Your Career for a Lifetime of Satisfaction and Success" by Nicholas Lore. You may be able to check it out of your local library, perhaps through Interlibrary Loan. It helped me figure out what I really wanted in "my next job" on my career path. Good luck!

  11. It looks like Jacqulines scraps really came in handy, your tag is Beautiful ,I love everything vintage!

  12. Glad that your MIL is doing better. I love what you did with Jacqueline's scraps (she got the BEST scraplings...and Donna, too!). I also love your quote of the day... making me ponder. How I wish I could cook for you some time!! Wouldn't it be swell :) ?
