Five Minute Friday — Ordinary

just writing and not worrying if it’s just right (or on time) or not?

link back here

Today’s prompt:


everyday,   common,   useful,   used

I like ordinary

I like normal,  (even if it is only a setting on the dryer)

even,  level,  dependable,  expected


I have seen the ordinary used in extra-ordinary ways

a small boy’s lunch

a touch of a hem

clay made of spittle

a grain of mustard seed

a word spoken     —————-peace, be still

fish and bread,   a robe,   clay,   seeds,   words

when blessed by the master ——miracles occur.


But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world
to confound the wise;
and God hath chosen the weak things of the world
to confound the things which are mighty;
1Corinthians 1:27

On My Mind — The First Quilt

This is a Friday photo feature that anyone with a blog can join. To take part, post a photo on your own blog, write a short caption explaining it, and link it back to here

This is the first quilt I made. I remember starting it when my mother was making for quilt for one of my brothers. She was doing a nine patch, I was sewing squares together. The year1960 0r ’61, I was 11 or 12.

First Quilt 12″ x 15″ all cotton

I don’t remember when I finished it, as with alot of my starts they rest in a box for a while before being completed.

This my treasure was found when we were moving some of the last of our things out of the house we had loved and lived in for the past 15 years. I have good memories of this first quilt, and good memories of the many quilts made on Lincoln Avenue.

We have been in our new home a year and thankfully quilts have grown here also.
