The Word of God is something I couldn't be without.
I'm actually reaching the half way point in the Bible. Through Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, Ruth (I love reading of Ruth and Boaz), 1 &2 Samuel, 1&2 Kings, and 1&2 Chronicles. I have loved this time with God so much, think I'll start again next January.
I love to sew.
My love for sewing started at about eight or nine years old. I had a neighbor friend and her mother made quilts. Beautiful quilts! I would ride my bike over and sit and watch her mother and grandmother hand stitch these beautiful heirlooms. I would plunder through my own mother's sewing box. Slowly, I began to put together my own sewing kit. Scraps of fabrics, needles and thread...my first sewing machine sewed yarn through paper. I loved that machine (a toy really). I so wished we would have saved it for my daughter.
This is a patch quilt I have been hand quilting for my daughter. I used all her infant blankets, baby cloths, and Winny Pooh curtains that used to hang in her nursery. It is almost ready for the binding.
This is my very first sewing machine, and it was given to me by my dear MIL. She is an excellent seamstress. She traded up about twelve years ago to a Janome and I was blessed with her old New Home. Seriously, it's a very basic machine but it runs perfectly. Her fancy embroidering Janome has seen the shop many a days but not this fossil. They don't make'em like they used too...
Two of my favorite 'things'! Thing one and thing two as they work together. Joyfully!! (most days)
When we built our home, we said that we would take our time and save for the things to make it "homey."
It's all about making a home.
This is still the most relaxing spot. My beloved finally got his hammock for Father's Day.
This thing.....well....we have a love hate thing going on. Hate that I have to drag myself here daily for two miles of an up hill climb. But loving when I finish...
Surround yourself and your home with what you love most.
Many Blessing from my home to yours...
