Oh My!…

I went to my fabric cabinet to get scraps for a few English paper pieced flowers. I opened the cabinet, pulled out a tote filled with fabric scraps, opened it up to find I had put felt material in it and had moved the fabric scraps to another tote…. Oh my!  I searched and didn’t find them.  I was on the phone with my Mom and told her it was going to take me longer to find the fabric scraps than it would take to hand sew the flowers.

After I found the fabric scraps, in a bigger tote than the previous one, I decided to make a list of where everything is in my cabinet.

So, now that I have that addressed I can focus on the paper pieced flowers.  They will be appliqued to the small quilt I’ve been working on.

I’m in the middle of rearranging my sewing room too.  I have moved the t.v. and the small cabinet it was sitting on out of the room and moved the Yarn dresser and the quilt rack.  Now I need to move the sewing tables.  I plan to keep them on the same side of the room but will rotate them so that lengthwise they will be going north/south instead of east/west like they are now.  By rotating the tables in the new position I will be able to have both of my active sewing machines set up at all times and I think I will have room for my serger too.  This will create a more efficient and productive environment.

I’ve said it before and I’m going to say it again.  I’m so glad Spring is here.  🙂
There are blooms everywhere.  All the daffodils in my flower bed are now bloomed.  I think the reason I like them so much is each year when they bloom to new life, it makes me think of how my life became new when I trusted in Jesus Christ as my Savior.  
Here are some shots I’ve taken in the past few days.  The days have been overcast so the color of the flowers and trees blooming gave the gray days some cheer.  🙂
this stem was laid over, so I cut it and put it in some water in this little bottle.

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.
