Now don't fall off your seat....

because last week...

I made a little something.....

with my sewing machine and all!!

Fly dust , fly.

ok so

it was just straight lines

& it only took a short amount of time..

well a little longer than just short, A & O helped (:

A little gift for my sis-in-law

sending her a little love & whimsy by

a simple table runner & mini bowls

--fabric & ribbon from my stash--

{Mini Latte bowls from here}

Happy Birthday dear Amanda!

Wish we could spend the day with you!


Now that I stuck my toe in the sewing pool...I'm ready to dive back in

{ Patterns from Oliver + s}

What I want to be sewing.... hopefully soon

..I've never used an official printed pattern on my own...

...could be interesting

don't mind us ..if Arabella looks a little askew.


... I NEED to be!

along with much more checks down the list

Thaddeus's big boy duvet cover to match Orrin's

{My mama helped with the main part... so all I need to do is button holes & applique the "No.3"}

Company's coming!... so while lil' T isn't using the bed...

it could be nice for our guest to have an actual made up bed (:

Enjoy your week in each little moment!

....we've got to keep moving & moving to prepare for the many, many feet coming this weekend ... (:

This is where I have been seeking CHRIST today...

in the Power of his Resurrection

and here.

A few days away in June..

You are beautiful beyond description.

Too marvelous for words.

Too wonderful of comprehension.

Like nothing ever seen or heard

Who can grasp you infinite wisdom.

Who can fathom the depth of your love.

You are beautiful beyond description..

Majesty enthroned above

And I stand,

I stand in awe of you


I stand, I stand in awe of you

Holy God to whom all praise is due

I stand in awe of you.

("I Stand in Awe," Mark Altrogge, 1987)
A delightful family weekend away

showing our precious packages we carried... Thane's.... was for the day...mine til October :)
