Recent Projects

I have been doing some sewing lately...


Cloth napkins: (they are more of a springy green then it looks like in this pic)


Love my serger, it makes such a nice edge! :


I made this apron for an online apron swap that I participated in:



Then today Sis Dari came and she made some things:



Coasters and napkins! It was fun!!


Btw, love the M'liss fabric collection at Hancock's!! Especially when it is on sale for $2.49/yd!! That is what the coasters and napkins were made out of.

Visit from my family

This last weekend we went to OK to my cousins wedding, and we were able to visit with my family as well :) We had a good time!

For some reason, I didn't take more pics, maybe it was because I was busy visiting??

I am a very blessed woman...

From time to time it hits me just how blessed I am to have a husband that wants me to stay at home. This morning was one of those moments, I was curled up on the couch with a cup of coffee and my Bible, and it hit me afresh just how blessed I am! Yet, a lot of people look at being a homemaker as something grievous or "less than" being out in the corporate world.

One morning I was getting James ready for the day, and I realized that if I had a  job outside the home, I would be getting him ready to go to daycare, Taylor and I would be eating a very rushed breakfast, then we would go three different directions for the day- Taylor to his work, me to mine and James to daycare :( I could NEVER bring myself to drop him off with strangers for the WHOLE day...

And also, just realizing that a Mother's job is eternal, we are raising souls for Jesus, and Lord willing one day our children will put their trust in Him. And in what job out there do you get to go get a rosy cheek-delicious baby after a nap and love on him, and see his sweet smiles and hear those little giggles... And at what job do you get to hear a sweet little voice calling out "mama'??

"Thank you Lord for my wonderful husband that wants me to stay home with our baby, and keep the house, and thanks for blessing us with this PRECIOUS little man to raise for You." Amen.
