I am so excited! I have received my very first blogging award from a dear friend, Midlife Mom at http://whinnyhollownews.blogspot.com/ . It is The Blessings Award and I feel so blessed. I sometimes find it hard to believe that I have been so blessed with such a wonderful family and such incredible friends. Each and everyone one of them is truly a blessing to me.
I now have to pass this on to someone that I feel deserves the award. I would like to extend this blessing to Dawn at http://grandmaofthree.blogspot.com/. She is certainly a blessing in so many lives -- her children, grandchildren and many other bloggers out there. Thank you Midlife Mom for all your encouragement and help in trying to figure this blogging technology out.
My #2 DIL stopped by yesterday to ask me if I would make an item for the upcoming auction for the children's school. This auction is the big money making event and each year she brings me a used uniform that the children wear. I cut it up and construct an identical uniform for one of the 18" Amer*ican Gi*rl dolls. Each year it is a very "hot" item in the live auction and I really enjoy making it. So that is what my plans are for tomorrow.
I absolutely love to spend the day in my sewing room. We did a remodel of our home this past year to make it more handicap accessible in case my mother or my husband's father should need to come spend any length of time with us. Since we are not currently "needing" the room for that purpose, I have taken it over for my sewing "studio." It is so nice to be able to "play" in there and then just close the door when I am finished for the day. This is what it looks like on a neat day which isn't very often. The walls are really not THAT green, but rather a very soft sage green. It is very peaceful.
I love it because it opens up onto the patio and back yard. It is so pleasant to sew while listening to birds chirping and watching the hummingbirds fly in and out for a sip of the nectar. I have three sewing machines set up at one time because I also teach my granddaughters how to sew. Several of them are home schooled and this is part of their curriculum. It is such a thrill to be able to sit down with them and observe what they come up with in regards to creativity. I will fuss over an idea forever and they just come up with ideas in a flash. We should all let our imagination loose like they do.
