Oh my! I didn't realize it had been so long since I posted. I'm sitting here trying to remember what has kept me too busy to post in the last couple of weeks.
Oh yeah...I know. PINTEREST is part of the problem. I just can't seem to stay off it. I've been pinning some really cute stuff and will share some of it one of these days, but if you want to take a look, just click on my Pinterest button on my sidebar.
I kept reading on blogs how addicting it is and girl, let me tell you...it is. But so much fun.
Yesterday was our baby girl, Emmy's birthday. Two years old, but if you ask her, she'll say five.
We aren't celebrating until Sunday after church, but thought I would show you her birthday dress I made this week.
Her Mommy loves Strawberries and I found this fabric in my stash, so thought I would use it. I would have rather bought some new Pam Kitty Morning Strawberry fabric, but sometimes it feels good to use something you have.
I used a pattern I have made before that is a little top with a flower applique. My girls love dresses, so I lenghthened it, and added a ruffle to make it a dress.
I machine appliqued a Strawberry
and then made some little white yo-yo's for the flowers.
I couched them to look like strawberry blossoms and added the little yellow buttons to make them look like the ones on the fabric
By the way, the green polka dot leaf is PKM fabric, so I was able to sneak a little in. Ha!
I can't wait for Sunday. Her 4 year old sister saw it and has already requested one just like it for her birthday, coming in April. Don't tell her, but it is already cut out.
Another thing that has been keeping me busy is a good (no, make that a great) thing.
A few weeks ago, I started a Beth Moore bible study. I have wanted to do one of her studies for some time and since we are home right now, decided to commit to doing it.
My really good friend Gail at Victorian at Heart is leading it, so I get to see her and some of my other friends there on Wednesday nights too.
This is what we are studying.
I have studied the book of James before, but never in this way. It has been an eye opener to some things in my own life I need to work on and has enriched and increased my prayer life immensely.
I already have a couple more posts in minds, so don't give up on me and check back for progress on my Dresden Plate quilt made from my treasured Pam Kitty Morning fabric that my friend shared with me.
As always I am so thankful that
God is Good!!
Life is Good!!
