prevent (someone) from accomplishing something.
I am prevented from quilting. I am going through withdrawal. I miss my stuff. If you have been following along, you will know that I have a new job in a new city. Our house in British Columbia has not sold. God willing it will soon. We packed most of our belongings and put them into storage. All that remains in the house are the largest pieces of furniture so it will show well. We just brought what we thought we might need until Advent. At some point soon we will return to move everything here since I have no inclination to drive across the country with a moving truck in the winter. Yes, you may have guess it, my sewing machine, my stash, all my notions are 1800 kilometres away, waiting, while I am here, missing them.
Before we moved, I managed to complete the top I introducted to you here. I didn’t care for the layout provided. Here is my spin.
Job 5:12 He thwarts the plans of the crafty, so that their hands achieve no success.
