With A Dash Of Hope

feature image a dash of hope quilt block peach cobbler

With a dash of hope, I finished my Peach Cobbler block and wondered how it got its name. Was the designer making a peach cobbler at the time? Did they make all the original peach cobbler blocks with peachy colored fabrics?

I see hope, not a peach cobbler

My block doesn’t remind me of a peach cobbler.

It makes me think of dancing, dancing makes me think of joy and joy, brings forth a feeling of hope.

(All this talk about Peach Cobbler is making me hungry!)

Romans 12:12

We can all use a good dose of hope every day.


It’s what makes getting up in the morning and going about your day doable. Even in the darkest of moments in your life. Whether it’s just trying to wrap your head around COVID 19, dealing with financial issues, relationships, or your neighbor not appreciating your crowing rooster.

Living in and rejoicing in hope is how you get through the stuff swirling around in your life. Being in constant prayer helps me with the patience part since I’m not a patient kinda lady. 🙂
