Happy First Day of Autumn

Hello!  Aren’t you glad Autumn is here?  I sure am.  Autumn is my favorite time of the year.

Here is the Sedum in my garden blooming for the season.

I worked in my sewing area this afternoon… You know how it is… it gets cluttered up from time to time.  So I de-cluttered the area so that I can get some sewing done.   Got side tracked from time to time by patterns and such… got started hand sewing a ornament… then got back on track again.
Finally I was able to sit down and sew.   I have two work shirts (blue and green) that have been put aside for recycle due to them being stained up.  Today, I decided to cut them up and make one good shirt out of them.  
The blue shirt was bleach splotched at the bottom.  The green shirt was stained at the top .  
So I cut the bottom off the blue shirt and cut the top off the green shirt, then took the remaining good pieces and sewed them together.  I tried it on and it still fits. It has a color block look and now I can wear it to work with out the staining. 
God bless and keep you!

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
