I tested a pattern for Lily Bird Studios a while back and absolutely love it. The pattern was so easy to use and the explanations were awesome. There is a giveaway going on right now for a pattern pack. Hop over and give it a try!

Recovered and Returning...

Well, now that I am fully recovered from my first surgery and now facing the possibility of back surgery, I am trying to take the time to update and keep up. I have done some sewing lately to break in the new sewing machine!

I have mainly made things for baby, but I am about to get started on some toddler summer clothes. Hopefully, and if in God's will, I will have a complete line soon. I am praying about it and following His lead.

So, for today I am posting a new infant gown that was made for my niece since she is having a sweet baby girl tomorrow!

And maybe a couple of soft flannel bibs...

Thankful for Thanksgiving...

I have so much to be thankful for. I always feel closer to my grandparents this time of year. They both have been gone 18 years now, and I still miss them as much as I did then.

I am thankful for the time I spent with them. Most of my childhood I lived with them and my Mom. I sat on the kitchen counter, on my Granny's bed, and on my Papa's lap or on his tractor and listened to every word they spoke. I held onto them and remembered them.

Whether it is one of my Granny's recipes, or one of my Papa's stories, I remember them and they are priceless to me.

I will be cooking my Granny's dressing, gravy, and pecan pie this Thanksgiving, as I do every year. We will sit down and I will feel her next to me.

While I am cooking or cleaning up, I will probably sing some old church hymn, and I will feel my Papa standing next to me, I may even hear him whistling. I so loved to hear him whistle.

These things I will never forget and they cannot be bought. I am thankful for them. When Christmas comes, I will have another set of memories from my grandparents to make me smile. Traditions were not known to me when I was in the middle of the woods, bundled up, freezing, and trying to pick the perfect tree, but now they are awesome. I love them and I treasure everything they taught me!
