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.


  1. Oliver and S patterns are really easy to use! Need help, you know my number!

  2. How fun...Yes I love Oliver & S patterns too.
    {if you get stuck they have a handy FAQ page on their website :) -speaking from experience!} but Jill is closer...:) Sounds like you are having a BIG bash this weekend! Hope this lovely weather holds for you!

  3. Oh, happy sewing! Looks fun - Arabella looking askew would still be darling. :D

  4. "All I have to do is the button holes"????

    You're worlds ahead of me! Love that runner. And I'm itching to see more of that duvet!

  5. Barbara ellen...
