is a favorite month for me.

Whats not to like?

Cooler weather, leaves turning,


International Quilt Market!

So, it’s that time of year that many of us are beginning to feel the stress in


noun seam·stress \-strəs\

: a woman who sews clothes, curtains, etc., as a job

: a woman whose occupation is sewing


Joy Studio is in the push mode of quilt market prep, again. God willing, we will be there with a new collection


some designs for a brand new product!

Booth #2534 with Quilting Treasures.

A couple of sneak peeks,


So why do you (I) worry ? Yikes!

Lots of work, never enough time.

Stress reliever, reminder to self:

Matthew 6:25-34

25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.


We still . . . are having fun though . . between the stresses of life,

wherever we can grab it.


God bless.

  1. OOooohhh! I can’t wait to see this finished!! Love all that fun applique!! The face looks sooo good! Just work along and know that it will all come together just the way its supposed to! SO STRESS!! (Iknow, easier said than done… I do the same before shows!)

  2. Thank you so much for sending Matthew scriptures to remind me how unimportant the things are that I stress about.  After all we need to remember  He is in charge of it & already has it covered!

    Have a wonderful October, season and market!

  3. well, I love how your studio is turning out on insta.
    And this project looks so marvelous and exquisite.
    I like Fall.
    I like Winter too.
    I have been spending many days with mom and dad last month and I forgot it is October now. Mom is living her last days on earth, she is in Hospice and comfortable. God has given us the gift of time, – and so many other gifts.

    Thank you so much for the package of sweet fabrics,
    I love you. Good luck stressing and making
