I thank each and every one of you who have read, supported, and commented on this blog over the past year.  For sharing, taking time, and most of all for the encouragement.

As I have looked back on this great adventure of becoming a ‘blogger’ — these are, and continue to be my goals in writing, sharing, and creating.

First, I know that God has given every one of us a gift (or two!) LOL.  Whether it is listening, supporting, encouragement, prayer, speaking or writing… sewing or quilting!  I have felt led to write this blog to be a forum for give and share what I have been gifted to give!  The love of Jesus, of living out a daily faith in God, of sharing the JOY of serving others, whether it be through quilting, or sewing, or photography, or friendship, and much more.

Second, and most important of all I give the glory to God, and thank Him for all of you.  This blog isn’t ‘about me’ — it is, however, about US, and to be used to glorify Him.  Together we have a great adventure to share and live in.  After all, this is heaven… on earth, just as the Lord’s Prayer tells us.  Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven!

I always love to write back to those who take time to write to me, whether they comment or not.  So if you’ve never heard from me personally, it might be because you’re ‘no reply.’ or choose to be anonymous.  Which is fine.  Just so ya know!  We are here for each other, and I know I am blessed beyond the mere words I write this afternoon.  Your thoughts and ideas are truly, & most sincerely appreciated. 

This little paper fabric quilt is a small token of thanks! I wish I could make something for all of you who commented… and someday, Lord willing, maybe!

Today, however, this quilt is gifted to MARSHA, who’s latest comment was this: “Beautiful work, as usual. I read the Herriot books as well. Joyful reading. Keeping my fingers crossed all weekend that I’m a winner.” 

Marsha, please email me your mailing address! XO!!

In addition, I’ve thought it would be fun to have a monthly drawing.  Postcard, thread, fabric, a pack of needles, or somethin!  If you are interested, email me your mailing address, (leslievaskey@msn.com) and I will put your name in the hat, as they say.  I will draw a name around the middle of November (if anyone’s interested, that is). 

GOD BLESS you, and keep you in the palm of His hand!  SOLI DEO GLORIA.
Thank you for helping make… the story of my life!

  1. I am so excited about winning this lovely piece of art. And the sentiment is so true! I can hardly wait to share Leslie's beautiful work with my special quilting friends. Thank you so much, Leslie, for your blog and your inspiration.

  2. Hey Leslie, beautiful as always, changed some of my settings so maybe I am not"private" now. In the picture is me and Avery,GD and the guy behind me is my son the "Navy Chief". Blessings to you for work you do and the message you share.

  3. Marsha is one lucky lady. The Keller quote is so true, where would we be without the love and support of each other. Beautiful work as always. xox Corrine

  4. Such a lovely little piece, as all of your art is. And you are a lovely person too Leslie! You are very generous and kind-hearted person. I'm so happy we've become friends.

  5. Leslie you are truly a gifted artist. I admire your work and your creativity. May God bless you as you continue your journey in life.
